The tree of life is full in our many Birds One Tree pendant. This image is from an original painting I did to celebrate diversity and unity. It shows a tree of life with birds of all kinds. Many Birds One Tree is a key image and phrase for me. My mom inspired this concept as a life-long social activist in her community. At age 85 she still worked for peace and a nuclear free world. (Go MOM!) The phrase works on a number of levels- for families and their many personalities- or even in terms of the greater earth and concepts of peace or ecology. The many Birds One tree image is also available as a print or note card.
Wear the Many Birds One Tree pendant close to your heart.
The inspiration for my lookinglass line comes from a Buddhist icon necklace brought back to me from Indonesia by a friend. I loved the two sided box design and notion of jewelry containing an added level of significance. Every pendent is slightly unique thru my combination of paints, patterned papers and imagery. Lookinglass jewelry is handcrafted; sandwiching two archival prints of my images between beveled glass, securing these with copper foil and soldering it all together. The two sides gives the wearer a choice of imagery to face outward or for images backed with text- it is nice to hold that saying close to your heart.
Handcrafted jewelry; Double sided pendant: The tree of life image is backed with my quote “Many Birds One Tree”, between two 1. x1. inch pieces of beveled glass. You can wear it either way. Each has a silver eighteen inch chain and glass bead detail. It is packaged in a little silk bag with a “Lookinglass” card.
