The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
How to Order
Select the number of people you would like to include on the tree in the "NUMBER OF BIRTHDAYS" drop down menu. You can select between 2 and 12 birthdays.
The pendant comes with a matching chain -- select the length of the chain in the "NECKLACE LENGTH" drop down.
Select the birth months for each individual on the tree in the subsequent drop downs. Note: I will arrange the stones in the order specified in the drop downs, from left to right.
If you want to order more than one pendant with the same stones, finish the selections for the pendant, add it the cart, and adjust the quantity in the cart accordingly.
If you want to order additional pendants with different stones, finish the selections for the first pendant, add it to your cart, and repeat the process for any subsequent pendants.
Each pendant is made by wrapping and twisting up to 12 feet of wire into a tree and beading each crystal into the branches.
Magic can be a slow process -- it can take up to 14 days for me to complete your family tree.
I use genuine gemstones to create the tree. Note that there are variations in the colors of most stones, so your pendant may vary in color from the ones shown in the photos. It will be one of a kind and unique to you.
I use the following Swarovski birthstones for each birth month:
- January - Garnet
- February - Amethyst
- March - Aquamarine
- April - Crystal
- May - Emerald
- June - Alexandrite
- July - Ruby
- August - Peridot
- September - Sapphire
- October - Rose
- November - Topaz
- December - Blue Zircon
The pendant is 1.5" long and approximately 1" wide. It comes with a copper chain in the length of your choice.
