Handcrafted with love by me from recycled sterling silver and a plethora of treasures. All items are made to order unless stated otherwise. Shipping is complimentary and eco-friendly.

My creations are my own original designs*, and they are crafted from the finest precious metals and gems I can gather. Each piece I craft is unique, meaningful, durable, and comes with an unconditional lifetime guarantee for as long as I am alive.

The Tree of Life symbolizes our connection to each other and our planet. Because of my connection to you and the Earth, it is important to me that my creations are as non-toxic and as eco-friendly as possible. My intent is to create an heirloom quality piece that will be loved by generations to come.

Please note that I need a 1-4 week lead time for custom orders.

Thank You so much,
Ethora

FAQ:

Q: What is recycled sterling silver?

A: Recycled sterling silver looks and is essentially the same as regular sterling silver. The only difference is that recycled sterling silver is sourced from old scrap silver that has been melted down and reused. Regular silver is sourced from a mine. Because mining is not good for the Earth, I make sure to only buy silver from reputable sources that certify their sterling as recycled.

Q: How should I clean my Ethora jewelry?

A: One easy way to clean my jewelry, because I use only high-quality solid silver and copper, is with an old tooth brush and toothpaste. Gently brush the silver portion (not the stones) and then rinse with cool water. Please note that this method will not work with silver-plated jewelry because the toothpaste is abrasive and will remove the silver plating. One reason why I do not use plated wire is because it does not stand the test of time.

Q: When will I receive my order?

A: Please read the items's description and/or the shipping section to learn the lead-time for each piece.


* The first person to sell wire Tree of Life pendants on Etsy is RomanyDesigns. I would not trust any seller who claims otherwise (the date a shop was opened means nothing). I was second on Etsy (I was previously selling trees on eBay). I am not the first person to twist wire into a tree shape, but I am proud to be the originator of several very popular designs, including:

- Tree of Life with The Full Moon
- Four Seasons Tree of Life (which made the cover of Uncommon Goods)
- Sun and Moon Tree of Life
- Family Tree of Life (my custom tree)
- "Once in a Blue Moon" Tree of Life
- "Comet of Life"
- Ethora's Broomstick


...and I have new designs in the works! I have more ideas than hands or time, so I better get back to work now. Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!

About

Original Tree of Life Pendants and Other Eco-Friendly Creations by Ethora

My creations are my own original designs, and they are crafted from the finest recycled precious metals and gems I can gather. Each piece I craft is unique, meaningful, durable, and comes with an unconditional lifetime guarantee for as long as I am alive.

The Tree of Life symbolizes our connection to each other and our planet. Because of my connection to you and the Earth, it is important to me that my creations are as eco-friendly as possible. For this reason I tend not to use coated craft wire, mystery metals, and certain types of gemstones. My intent is to create an heirloom-quality piece that will be cherished by generations to come.

Please note that I need a 1-3 week lead time for custom orders. Please contact me if you need your tree sooner, and I may be able to to rush your order.

Thank You so much, and have a beautiful day!

Love,
Ethora
