Tree Necklace in Sterling Silver with Natural New Lander Variscite
This necklace is constructed from sterling silver. I've hand-sawn the tree and soldered it to the top of a natural new lander variscite stone with a matrix-like that of roots of a tree. Necklace chain is 20". Pendant measures approximately 3/4" x 2". It is lightly oxidized to bring out the details of the tree.
As I was creating this necklace, I was reminded of childhood memories at my grandparent's home in Ohio. They had the largest pine tree in their yard that had lower limbs that touched the ground. My cousins and I could wiggle our way through the branches and discover a room made by those branches. The tree inspired a lot of creative play as a child.
