This unique Tree of Andry wearable art necklace has been intricately handsculpted of sterling silver and paper. The Tree of Andry, as originally sketched by Nicholas Andry in 1741, is the international symbol for Orthopaedics. Andry, a French pediatrician, sketched the tree for his 1741 book to show a crooked sapling being straightened with a fine rope. The Tree of Andry, or the 'crooked tree', was to symbolize the correcting of childhood deformities through medicine. One of the basic orthopaedic principles is:" bone is not an inert material, but a dynamic structure that responds to stimuli.” This unique necklace would be a wonderful gift not only for those involved in orthopaedics or pediatric medicine, but also those who are healing, or overcoming an adversity in life, or to commemorate an accomplishment.


This necklace has been sealed with multiple sealants so that you can wear it in the rainiest, hottest, snowiest climates without fear. It wears like any piece of fine jewelry should.

If you would prefer this design in different colors or in multiples for your special event, please contact me and I will be happy to work with you on your custom design!


The pendant of this necklace hangs from a 17 inch delicate sterling silver chain. It has a sterling silver lobster clasp.
