Spiral Tree of Life in Copper
This striking spiral tree of life pendants are a thoughtful and unique gift for yourself or for a special person in your life.
For this design, I've combined two magical symbols -- the tree of life, and the spiral. The Spiral is a sacred symbol that represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to Source. The spiral symbol can represent the consciousness of nature beginning from its center expanding outwardly. Spirals have been linked to nature, the seasons, and the path of life: birth, growth, death and reincarnation. They are closely connected with mother goddesses, and are a very feminine symbol.
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
Every part of the pendant is lovingly and thoughtfully handcrafted in my studio. It takes several hours of craftsmanship to create each one of these sacred trees. The necklace will arrive beautifully packaged with an explanation of the symbolism of the tree of life. This is a special and unique gift that won't be found anywhere else. I create with the intention of feeling magic, and sharing that magic with you. I know that when you open the box to see this stunning piece of jewelry, you'll have a moment of magic.
The pendant is made from copper wire. It comes with a shell moon of your choice (or no moon if you prefer) and will ship with a 22" copper chain or an adjustable black leather or black cotton cord
Caring for Your Magic
- Always remove your jewelry before showering, bathing or sleeping.
- Your jewelry can be cleaned with a soft cloth. A small polishing cloth is provided with your set.
- All metals will tarnish over time. This process actually enhances the beauty of the tree, adding additional depth to the trunk and branches. You can use a polishing compound to brighten up the wire if you wish. If you choose to polish your pieces, take care to avoid the gemstones so they are not damaged.
