Description

Cute Apple Tree of life pendant with spring green peridot gemstone leaves and faceted ruby red jade apples. Silver wire wrapped jewelry, autumn 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 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.

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" (38mm) diameter excluding bail. The large bail will accommodate any chain or cord of your choice.

Chain is available as an option from the above drop-down menu.

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.

** Exact pendant pictured has sold. YOURS WILL BE HAND MADE UPON RECEIPT OF ORDER and will have a little bit of natural variety in it - just like a real tree! - making it beautifully unique. Please see "Ready to ship in" time notice by the shipping info.

A wonderful gift for a Teacher as well! :)

Gift Orders
I'm happy to send an item directly to a gift recipient. Simply note in your order that you wish it to go to a different gift address. I am also happy to include a note to the recipient as well - just tell me what you'd like in the "notes to seller" section at checkout.

Packaging & Recycling
Jewelry is wrapped securely in bubble wrap and presented in a drawstring organza bag (suitable for gift-giving!) and mailed in bubble envelopes.

Allergies & Allergens
All items are made and packed in a completely smoke free home. However, I do have two cats and there is a chance of a stray hair or two getting in a package despite my best attempts otherwise. The items themselves being metal and gemstone shouldn't have any problems with holding allergens but those with extreme sensitivity might want to be careful of the packing materials.

CUSTOM ORDERS
I gladly accept custom orders! If something I have made sold and you're like another, or if there's something you like but want personalized, or if you have an idea for something different please feel free to convo me with your thoughts! I'm happy to work with you to make the perfect, personalized item for your needs.

Payment is due IN FULL when order is placed. This is because I often must purchase supplies specific for your custom piece and sadly, I have had people confirm a custom order, then I order supplies and create it for them, only to decide they don't have the money to pay. As a result of a handful of unscrupulous buyers, I must now request payment in full up front.

I will be glad to send a photo of the completed piece prior to shipping to verify it is as ordered. In the unlikely event that you're not satisfied, we can discuss changes at that time.

Custom orders are FINAL once the item is shipped. Thank you for your understanding.

* Care and Handling of Handmade Jewelry *
By it's very nature, handmade jewelry is going to be inherently more delicate than something mass-manufactured. It's important to always apply the "last on; first off" rule meaning put your jewelry on last when getting ready and take it off first.

Permanent wire coatings, protective coatings, non-tarnish finishes and gemstones can be damaged by exposure to various chemicals, including things like lotions, hairsprays and perfumes among others.

It's also important to NEVER submerge handmade jewelry in any kind of liquid, nor use any abrasive clothes, brushes or cleaners as it can damage the piece. Do not wear in the shower, tub, pool or other time when the piece may get submerged in water.

By following these guidelines and with normal wear and gentle care, your handmade jewelry should last you for years and years!
