Tree Inspired Wearable Art Necklace// Solid Copper and .925 Sterling Silver
I've always found trees interesting since they've been around since the beginning, much like rocks, and crystals. I've always been fascinated by their immensity, and often think about how much time it takes to form a sturdy bark and grow tall. They are gentle giants and I can't help but feel in communion with their presence. I've always felt like trees have a lot to teach us- how to be patient, how to provide for others, how to grow strong yet be able to adjust to our surroundings. Trees are also a metaphor of the potential from seed to fullness.
In this awe, I created this piece. After a trip back from Yosemite National Park, the silence in nature, the story of the trees became a part of me, something energetically tangible, something I will never forget. I took a photo of a tree ring and etched it into copper and set it in textured silver "branches". It appears to be floating in the design and only after it's creation did I realize that the design reminded me of the many "eyes" you see in tree bark. It was interesting to see the subconscious at work in this full design and if anything, I would say that the message of this piece is to remember that we become a part of the environment we are in so remember to surround yourself with the positive and healthy things that add sustenance to your life.
This is a one of a kind piece.
Thank you for letting me share this with you.
