Item # 713 – Tree of Life – Peridot Swarovski Crystals
Unfortunately, the photos do not do the Swarovski crystals justice. The sparkle and fire from these types of crystals are wonderful. The light green color is the essence of Spring.
The frame is made of aluminum to make it light weight. It is very sturdy and doesn’t tarnish. The tree is made from silver artistic wire which does develop some patina over time, but it adds to the tree-like quality.
It measures approximately 1.5 inches wide. The cord necklace is sold separately. This item can also be purchased as a stick pin brooch.
The Tree of Life is a symbol that dates back thousands of years BCE or BC (whichever you prefer).
You will find variations of a Tree of Life in many religions including Christianity, Taoism, Hinduism, Shinto, to name a few. The Mesoamerican cultures also embraced a Tree of Life in their various civilizations.
Most often, the Tree of Life stands for the interconnectedness of all life on our planet and the life cycle.
Since learning this design, I have really enjoyed experimenting with different wires, “leaves” and sizes. Each one is unique and varied. Please feel free to custom order the materials and sizes. Send an email to lori at sweetfirecreations.com
