I've mentioned the pendants I started making a couple of times now, and I thought I'd post a picture of a couple of them, but first there's an interesting story about those pendants.
For a couple of weeks I was seeing trees everywhere. I don't mean real trees outside. Of course, I always see those, but I was seeing the imagery of trees in articles I was reading, shows I was watching, tattoos. Everywhere, every day. I was beginning to wonder if it was a sign from the Universe or if there was some message I was supposed to be getting from the trees.
I thought maybe it had to do with pruning and new growth because I had been experiencing some of that in my life, and then after seeing a Celtic tree of life symbol as a tattoo I Googled, "tree of life," and I found beautiful jewelry that I wanted to wear with trees on it, and then, because I make jewelry, I thought instead it would be more meaningful if I made myself a tree of life pendant, and that's how I started making them.
When I shared pictures on Facebook of the pendants I was making, people started asking to buy them, and then I stopped making them, which is weird, but I think it was as Magic Mentha mentioned, a difficulty with receiving that made me stop making the pendants when others expressed a desire to pay for them.
There is another layer to the whole "tree" thing, and another possible message from the Universe or my psyche, and that is that I should begin working on a novel I started last year. I only wrote a few chapters, but when I looked at the very last sentence I had written I couldn't help wondering if the trees were telling me that I needed to tell this story. The last sentence I wrote was, "Kali scratched her head while working on her History test and suddenly remembered the strange vibrating tree in the middle of the woods."
The trees. They are giving me something, and I'm still not sure if I'm imagining it or it's a true sign, but it doesn't really matter, does it? Anyway, here are the pictures I promised:
The pendant on the right is actually larger than the one on the left. Here is a picture of them together so you can see their actual size:
