Copper Tree of Life Yggdrasil Earrings, Handmade Rustic Green Orange Artisan Jewelry Gift

Item Description

With loads of rustic, earthy charm and full of ancient meaning, the ARBRE DE LA VIE handmade Tree of Life earrings are beautiful and stylish to wear.  Throughout the history of humankind, trees have been a source of reverence and strength, a metaphor for the joining of the heavens with the underworld through the Earth.  Yggdrasil is a sacred tree in Norse cosmology, an immense mythical tree that connects the nine worlds.  The focal of the one of a kind earrings are artisan copper Tree of LIfe charms with amazing raised 3D detail.  Since they were individually handmade by Kristi of KristiBowmanDesign from beginning to end, there are slight differences in the color of the torched copper and the overall tree design - something that shows these are not mass produced charms but are loving made.  The tree components are slightly concave.  They are wire wrapped to the upper part of the earrings with copper wire.

 

To add a huge dose of rustic appeal and to complement the Tree of Life copper charms perfectly, two types of Czech glass beads were used.  The first are very earthy and organic Czech glass nuggets that look like they have been in the ground for millennia.  They started out with a turquoise glass base but have a pitted, tumbled texture.  A Picasso finish was added in shades of mossy green, brown, rust and gold for an even more ancient look.  Copper daisy spacers cap the top and bottom of the pair of nuggets.  Just above the upper daisy spacer, a single faceted Czech glass rondelle was placed.  The color is a deep rust orange with a mix of translucent and opaque glass and a metallic brown Picasso finish on the ends.  These beads positively glow when backlit!  All the elements used to create the unique earrings were strung on copper wire, wire wrapped and then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ARBRE DE LA VIE earrings are perfect for the woman who loves Tree of Life jewelry.  “Arbre de la Vie” is French for “Tree of Life.”

Since ancient days, trees have always been a symbol of strength and perseverance and of joining the heavens with the underworld. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The one of a kind ARBRE DE LA VIE artisan earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
