Tree of Life Yggdrasil Earrings, Painted Bronze Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Looking as if the first soft hued rays of the morning sun are shining through a stand of trees, the FIRST LIGHT OF DAY handmade earrings are perfectly named and oh so beautiful!  They are ideal for the woman who adores symbolic Tree of Life / Yggdrasil jewelry. The earrings feature individually artisan created bronze charms with dusty rose pink and turquoise Czech glass beads complementing the tree dangles.  The Tree of Life charms started their lives as bronze precious metal clay that was molded, formed and imprinted, and ended up, after being fired at high heat in a kiln, as pure, glowing bronze. The trees are raised up against the background providing wonderful texture.  To provide delicate color, the charms were hand painted in shades of peachy pink and pale golden green to represent the first light of day. Since the charms were individually handmade and hand painted, you can see that the pieces are very similar but not exactly the same.  The back of the Tree of Life charms are shiny bronze and fairly smooth.
 
To highlight the background colors of the dangles, two dusty rose pink Czech glass discs were stacked above each charm.  To add a vintage look, each bead was lightly coated with a golden bronze Picasso finish. To add a pop of color to the design, an opaque light turquoise blue tri-cut Czech beads was added, separated from the pink discs by a copper daisy spacer.  The turquoise beads also have a Picasso finish, this time in an earthy brown. Since the beads have three facets (tri-cut) they add subtle sparkle to the earrings. Sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accents finish the earrings beautifully.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FIRST LIGHT OF DAY Tree of Life earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves nature, trees and the first light of the morning.
 
***  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 / Yggdrasil 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.

Since ancient days, trees have always been a symbol of strength and perseverance and of joining the heavens with the underworld.  Bronze is said to bring great calmness and deep meaningful thoughts, leading to a far greater insight into life’s problems. Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. 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 FIRST LIGHT OF DAY tree charm 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!
