Symbolism in Jewelry

This year, it has been a goal to introduce some pieces of jewelry that while are pretty to look at, are also symbolic in nature.

I am beginning my collection with a few Tree of Life pieces. A beloved symbol in cultures and faiths around the world, the Tree of Life links the heavens, the earth, and all that is hidden and growing beneath.

I added an iridescent olive green coin pearl and a dark, mocha swarovski crystal to bring the moon and dark stars into play with the large pendant. It is a simple, but eye catching design.

Keep an eye out for new symbolic pieces and if you have suggestions..I'd love to hear them!
