This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Permanently colored brown wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then non-tarnish copper wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. Genuine round nuggets of garnet gemstone are used as the “leaves” of the piece. It is a very three-dimensional piece that rises up off it’s square frame and really brings depth and beauty to the pendant.
Garnet is a natural, semi-precious gemstone associated with the planet Mars, the zodiac sign of Aquarius and the birthstone of the month of January. Considered the stone of good luck in business, it’s also said to increase your self-esteem when worn as jewelry. It’s also the stone associated with the first chakra (base of the spine.)
