Irish elm tree of life necklace

(2 customer reviews)


In Irish folklore, carrying a leaf or twig of elm was said to help win the affection of someone you desired.
This very unique hand-carved tree of life necklace will be made for you, or a loved one, in my studio on the West of Ireland.



Encircled into a side groove with a sterling silver ring and adorned with abalone shell & silver inlays, this finely carved tree of life necklace features a piece of Irish elm.
Considered one of the sacred trees in the Celtic world, elm has often been associated with Mother and Earth Goddesses. In rural Ireland the elm tree was said to possess magical properties and was considered to be the home of the fairies.

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.

This tree of life necklace is the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world. This is a unique addition to anybody’s jewellery collection.

– Irish elm inlaid with abalone shell and Sterling silver & sanded to a smooth finish
– Non-toxic oil finish to seal the wood & enhance its natural color
– The carved piece is enclosed into a side groove with a sterling silver ring
– Pendant size: 35mm / 1.38 Inches long

    I got this necklace for my birthday in a different wood (mahogany) and it was perfect! Both the size and the type of wood you’d like your necklace can be modified which is ideal. I would definitely buy one of these styles for a friend!
