Trees... Beauty, power, strength, majesty, peace... The process to create this unique tree pendant, was an adventure. It started as a wood stamp from India, was cast in sand, then a permanent mold was made. Each tree is cast by Sharla, sanded, oxidized, tumbled for hours and then buffed to create a brushed silver effect. Wear alone with your favorite outfits, or layer with other pieces. The stainless steel chain is 34" with a 3" extension.
The story of the tree... I realize that not everyone shares my faith and that's ok. But the tree pieces are very special to me and inspired by a passage of Scripture that changed my life. Isaiah 61:1-3... this is the passage Jesus read from, in Luke 4:16-20, when He began His ministry. I like to think of it as His inaugural address, His vision for His nation of people. Years ago, as I studied this passage, I began to realize what was possible for my broken, messy life... I decided many years ago, that I wanted to grow up into an oak of righteousness. If you have a different tree story, I would love to hear your story and why trees are special to you! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.
