Some version of the Tree of Life symbol is found in most cultures worldwide and can be dated back to ancient times.  All parts of the tree have meaning:  the sturdy roots dig deep; the trunk establishes a foundation; the branches reach out for sustenance; the leaves collect strength; and the fruit gives life.  A Tree of Life is also said to be the world center, connecting the heavens with the underworld and representing the cycle of life, connecting all forms of life on earth.

 

The eye catching Tree of Life pendant was molded, shaped, carved and kiln fired from beginning to end by Kristi of Kristi Bowman Design.  It were then torched to bring out the glow that copper is famous for and sealed for protection.  The Tree of Life design is raised against the background, bringing out the incredible detail of the branches and adding textural drama to the design.  The pendant is slightly dome shaped and is connected to the main body of the necklace with a sturdy copper jump ring.  

 

Beautifully complementing the Tree of Life pendant are rich green malachite tubes.  As you can see in the photos, the malachite tubes are banded, something that the gemstone is famous for.  A popular gemstone, polished malachite has been carved into ornaments and worn as jewelry for thousands of years.  In between each piece of malachite are radiant Czech glass melon beads in a cashmere opal color with a light metallic Picasso finish to add sheen and an antiqued look.  Do these beads ever glow!.  Separating the Czech glass melons are copper disc spacers, three on each side, and tiny copper round beads.  A sleek copper toggle clasp set finishes the beautiful necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TREE OF LIFE pendant necklace was created for the woman who adores trees and one of a kind, artisan  jewelry.  

 


Since ancient days, trees have always been a symbol of strength and perseverance and the joining the heavens with the underworld. Malachite, because of its green color, has long been seen as the color of life; it is said to help encourage true, pure love.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  


 

The TREE OF LIFE artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
