Everyone knows I make a lot of Tree of Life Pendants. And, on the first glance, this one may not look unique or different, but it's actually a wonderfully surprising piece.

It was an experiment and a bit of a happy accident. I had something else entirely in mind when I started this one, but this is the tree that came forth. I really like all my pieces, but this one I truly, truly love. I just adore looking at the twisting branches, so full of life and such a vibrant reminder to me of Spring in full bloom.




It features a sterling-plated, non-tarnish silver wire and 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. This piece is approximately 1.75" H/W (with about .25" additional height including the bail.) A bolder size for me and my normal pieces, but still very wearable.

The simplicity of the style is what gives the wonderful branches their depth and character and while it may be a very "classic" Tree of Life pendant, it's truly one of my favorite pieces for the movement, depth and soul the Tree has.

As always, thoughts welcome. Cheesy

Wisted! I saw immediately what you meant about this one being different, I like how the gemstones wrap around the edge. Also this has my birthstone done in a way I actually like!
