Encircled into a side groove with a sterling silver ring and adorned with a piece of abalone shell & silver inlays, this delicately carved Tree lady necklace features the ancient native Irish yew wood.
Considered one of the sacred trees in the Celtic world, the yew has long been associated with immortality & longevity. As a consequence, warriors and poets alike were often called after it. Indeed, Eoghan remains one of the more popular Irish names in modern Ireland. The Druids chose yew from which to make their wands, or staffs, and cherished it as having powerful magical properties. They also regarded yew as sacred and planted it close to their temples. As early Christians often built their churches on these consecrated sites, the association of yew trees with churchyards was perpetuated.
In Celtic mythology and folklore, trees were a connection to the world of the spirits and the ancestors, belief that all mankind came from trees and were therefore regarded as magical beings. Living entities and doorways into other worlds, they were believed to carry messages to other realm and conferred blessings.
This Tree lady 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.
