The Tree of Life

The “Tree of Life” is a motif that has appeared in numerous cultures, religions and folklore. Typically, it appears as a leafy, healthy tree with a sturdy trunk and visible roots. It has represented a variety of concepts, including wisdom, healing, purity, and the threshold between life and death. In Norse mythology Yggdrasil, the world tree, supports the nine worlds and is the focus of numerous myths.

Around a year ago Drakestail started creating our own handmade Tree of Life pendants. Inspired by the depth of meaning and the soothing, earthy appearance, I decided to create a Tree of Life pendant for myself, initially using silver-plated wire and pale green jade chips. I love how it turned out, and wear it often. I got lots of positive comments about it, as well as requests! Since then I’ve created several permutations, using aventurine, carnelian, clear quartz and rose quartz to represent the Tree in different seasons. I’ve also worked some up with copper wire, to great effect. Using gemstone chips and twisting the trunks by hand, each pendant is unique.

Sending all our love to you – revamped shipping costs

After uploading some new items to our Etsy store and then taking a look around, I noticed that the shipping costs on all the items were pretty inconsistent.  I’m pleased to say that I spent a bit of time this morning and straighened that out!  All of our items will ship worldwide, and buying multiple items means significant savings on shipping costs.

While we’d love to meet all of you and say thank you face-to-face, it’s impossible to jet around the world to do so. (I wish!)  However, if you live in the Ottawa/Gatineau region we’d love to do just that.  Use the coupon code LOCAL2OTTAWA and we’ll hand-deliver your purchase.
