Adorned with a Sterling silver inlay, these finely carved Treelady earrings feature pieces of Irish beech, recycled from musical instruments constructed by a local luthier. As a musician myself, I take enormous satisfaction in creating a pair of earrings whose inherent wood has previously featured in a beautiful hand-made harp.
If the Oak tree is the King of the Woods, then the Beech is its Mother. According to ancient folklore, the tree offers protection, nourishment and represents deep wisdom. Beech was also used as a good luck charm, and pieces of it were thought to bring good fortune to the wearer.
Not considered to be a native tree of Ireland, fossils of pollen from the Beech tree have been found in Galway, suggesting the tree could well have flourished here thousands and thousands of years ago.
In Celtic mythology trees were perceived as a connection to the spirit world. Indeed, our ancestors held the belief that some trees were a portal between the material world and the underworld. They served as messengers between the two realms and conferred blessings on those who passed between them.
The “Tree Lady” is my own, personal interpretation of the Celtic Tree of Life. It symbolizes the unique life force that each of us possess and serves as a metaphor for Mother Nature.
Light and elegant these earrings are suitable for both everyday wear and for that special occasion! They are the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world.
