Made to Order
Brown wire apple Tree of Life pendant with spring green peridot gemstones and ruby red jade apples hand wire wrapped to form a harvest necklace or Teacher's Gift.
The Tree of Life is a concept that's been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things - the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane - the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.
This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered permanently colored brown wire (over copper) frames and encircles the pendant and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.
The leaves are made from genuine Peridot gemstone. Peridot is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in the most amazing green color. The birthstone of August, it has been considered sacred and a symbol of purity for thousands of years. It was considered a stone of Springtime and a gift of Mother Nature by the Ancients. It is a stone of lightness and beauty and is said to enhance wellness in the spiritually aware. Peridot does have natural, minor inclusions but this is just part of the character of the stone.
The apples are made from 4mm faceted jade beads. This is known as "candy jade" and is dyed to achieve uniform, deep, rich color. It makes perfect apples and the color really pops with the bright, Spring green of the Peridot.
Apple trees always remind me of Autumn as a child growing up in rural, Western Pennsylvania. My uncle had a farm and an apple orchard. Each year, my Mom would climb the trees and toss apples down to me to gather in laundry baskets (which always did double duty during harvest season!) Nothing was every better than an apple fresh from the tree on a crisp, fall day!
The pendant is my "medium" size and thus a little larger than the typical pendants. Measuring approximately 1.5" diameter excluding bail. The large bail will accommodate any chain or cord of your choice.
Chain available as an option from the drop-down menu above.
It's the perfect size; big enough to be noticed, but not so large as to be unwearable. It's a chunky tree with a lot of dimension to it; some of the "apples" are nestled into the branches, much like a real tree.

I'd like to thank you for this beautiful pendant. It is in the top 5 pieces of jevellery I own. It looks lovely in the pictures, but it is even better in real life! I'm not jocking: I've had it in my favourites for ages and, when I decided to order it, I was a bit afraid I could be disappointed. Instead, it's just the right size, it feels well-made and the little stones are perfect. I'll order one with the moon next :-)
Arrived quickly and it is absolutely beautiful. The size is very nice too.
Really original tree of life. The person who made it is certainly a generous one : many, many péridots and several ruby red jades redstones garnish this apple tree.
Absolutely gorgeous! Love it!!!
