You may have seen my Under A Full Moon tree posted here last month. This is a variation of that same style with a twist!
There are no “leaves” in this piece. Instead, it celebrates bare branches of a tree against a night sky with a full, Blue Moon.
The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.
This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.
This tree is bare of leaves like one would see in Winter and features a large, aqua blue shell round disk representing a “full moon” behind the branches. This full moon is a rare “blue moon” which is the term for the second full moon in a single calendar month. This piece has a very mystical feeling to me and a stillness to it as well.
This pendant as well as other versions are available in my shop. I also will gladly customize with different wire/moon color combinations!
Interesting note: This tree was also featured recently on CNN. I was interviewed as a human interest story on healthcare and they discussed my jewelry business and included a shot of me holding up this tree in-progress. (See image below.)
