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 non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.
Turquoise is a stone that has been prized for many years. The ancient Egyptians used turquoise in jewelry and the name means "Turkish stone" as it came to Europe by way of Turkey. Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in Sinai. Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. Turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.
Native Americans of the Southwest also are well known for their silver and turquoise jewelry. Tribes such as Navajoes, Hopi and Zuni are most famous for their turquoise use. They started making silver and turquoise pieces started around the 1850's and continue on through present day.
There are many imitation forms or dyed stones out there. This is a natural (stabilized) turquoise gemstone.
Turquoise has natural variation and variety of greens, aquas, and browns. It's part of the beauty of the stone. Each pendant is fully hand crafted and thus one-of-a-kind. No two are ever alike. You will receive the exact pendant pictured.
The pendant is approximately 1.5"H x 1.25"W not including bail and will accommodate any chain of your choice. (Chains available SEPARATELY here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PhoenixFireDesigns?section_id=7776955 )
