The Tree of Life is a Universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions around the world. It symbolizes life itself, with it’s branches reaching for the Heavens “Father Sky” and it’s buried roots, linking to “Mother Earth.”
Many ancient mythical stories come from the idea that all living beings are born from the earth; the source of life and sustenance for all.
Legends say that the sacred dove sits in the branches of the Tree of Life and appears with the fruit of the tree and the waters of life.
The tree has become a symbol of love, wisdom, rebirth, strength, redemption, friendship, bounty and encouragement.
In homage to The Tree of Life, I have created these stunning recycled glass pendants. Each circle features an intricate wire Tree of Life and is embellished with stunning bead “leaves.” These unique pieces are all hand crafted and are one of a kind. Truly an heirloom piece not to be missed.
