I've always loved the symbolism of The Tree of Life. Humans, animals and plants that die are buried in the earth, the roots of the tree feed from the earth's soil, and then give precious oxygen to our air. It really is a never-ending cycle of life.
This Tree of Life brooch is made from gorgeous vibrant orange ripple acrylic with subtle gold flecks. There is a cute little gold glitter heart in the trunk of the tree which is etched wood. The wood and acrylic components are mounted on a 2mm clear acrylic backing. This makes the brooch sturdier and less likely to break at the branches if it's dropped.
It's 74 mm H x 74 mm W and 5 mm thick with a 40 mm silver plated locking pin on the back.
Designed, cut and hand made in Australia.
*The wood used in this brooch comes from sustainably managed forests in the USA and is part of the sustainable forestry initiative growing 2.29 trees for every one tree that is harvested.
