Tree of Life Yggdrasil Necklace, Citrine Carnelian Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The breathtaking WORLD TREE necklace marries the beauty of a mystical Tree of Life pendant with glorious star cut citrine and orange carnelian gemstones.  The definite focal of the one of a kind necklace is a colorful artisan handmade copper pendant.  It features a raised Tree of Life / Yggdrasil design with a moon.  The pendant was torched fired to bring out the incredible fiery orange sunset color with bits of purples and fuchsias.  The photos of the pendant definitely do not show the true beauty.  The back of the pendant is flat and is stamped with the artist’s logo.  A heavy duty copper jump ring securely connects the pendant to the main body of the necklace.
Two types of gemstones perfectly complement the Tree of Life pendant: sparkling star cut yellow citrine and rich orange carnelian.  The shape of the citrine is called “star cut” since each stone has fifteen flat faces, each with a peak radiating out into a five-point star.  As the necklace is worn, the flat faces sparkle as the angle of the light changes.  The color of the citine range from a pale yellow to a medium amber color.  A majority of the gemstones are translucent, although some have natural inclusion that are “foggy” looking.  Between each grouping of citrine are natural carnelian rounds, ranging in color from a medium orange to dark orange-brown.  A single small copper bead separates each gemstone from the next.  A twisted pure copper toggle clasp securely fastens the unique necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the WORLD TREE necklace was created for the woman who loves the symbolism of the Tree of Life and adores wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry!

*** For a better understanding of the relative size of the artisan copper tree pendant, citrine and carnelian used to create the WORLD TREE necklace, please be sure to check out photo # 3 for a size comparison with a quarter.

Since ancient days, trees have always been a symbol of strength and perseverance and the joining the heavens with the underworld.  Citrine is said to enhance light-heartedness, joy, happiness, wisdom and peace.  Carnelian is used to aid in understanding the inner self, helping to offset doubt and negativity.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.


***  Some version of the Tree of Life symbol is found in most cultures worldwide, dating back to ancient times:  the Hindu  Akshaya Vata; the Egyptians' Holy Sycamore;  the Mayan Wacah Chan; the Norse Yggdrasil; and many, many others.   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 WORLD TREE 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!
