Tree Of Life "This is Me"


About this design:

Tree of life this is me, I love nature, When I go outside or take a walk, I always look at the trees, I look at all the curves of the branches and how big the trunk is. I feel like I am in another world, maybe he is talking to me, I would love to crawl up and sit on a branch. I will sit down underneath to protect me from the sun, this is why I love the tree of life. I have Lupus, and there is one thing that is bad for my skin (the sun) I will get very sick. The tree protects me from the rays, so I can enjoy nature and to be outside.. The curves of my tree make up the number 6, and the Ruby is my stone (July 6), I used a red garnet (I did not have a Ruby), wrapped into the trunk.

Components:

Artistic Wire, Amber, Quartz, Garnet,

    Lynn this is so beautiful, and your story touched a personal note, as my grandmother had lupus, so I know about how bad the sun can be for you.

    I love this tree pendant! If you want to crawl in a tree I think you should. My kids got me to climb a tree, it has been a while but I would do it again!

    Gorgeous and totally unique. I love to go for walks in the woods. I grew up on the edge of the Mark Twain National forest in the Ozarks with trees, trees and more trees.

    I love how you did this. Your branches curve so gracefully, and the stone in the trunk is perfect. I do believe I prefer the leaf shape to the trad circle!
