Tree of Life Pentagram

The Pentagram is a symbol of a star encased in a circle. Always with 5 points (one pointing upward), each has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. All these things contribute to life and are a part of each of us.

To wear a pentagram necklace or other form of jewellery, is to say you feel the connection with the elements and respect the earth.

The pentagram has long been believed to be a potent protection against evil, a symbol of conflict that shields the wearer and the home. The pentagram has five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive, protective pentagon at the centre.

The Tree of Life in its various forms is recognized in all cultures as a symbol of immortality and eternal life. From ancient Chinese and Egyptian culture to Germanic paganism and Mesoamerica, it has been sought after throughout the ages. And, while depicted in many different contexts, the imagery across all cultures is essentially the same. Not to be confused with the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, the tree of Life is the tree whose fruit gives eternal life to all who might obtain it. In addition to its religious references, it is a reminder of our past (roots - ancestry), present (tree body - knots included) and future (fruit – labour and posterity).

In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is the World Tree, a great ash tree located at the centre of the universe and joining the Nine Worlds of Norse cosmology. The trunk of the tree may be thought of as forming a vertical axis around which these worlds are situated, with Ásgard, realm of the gods, at the top and the Hel, located in Niflheim, at the bottom. Midgard, or Middle-Earth (the world of mortals), is located in the middle and surrounded by Jötunheim, land of giants, both of which are separated by the ocean. Yggdrasil is also sometimes known as Mimameid or Laerad.

Crescent Moon Necklace

TWO Silver Moon and Crystal Necklaces, Blue and Silver Crystals, Crescent Moon, Celestial Necklace, Friendship Gift, Couples Necklaces


Crescent Moon Meaning
Throughout many traditions the sun represents the father and male principle and the moon the mother and feminine principle. The energy of the moon is intuitive, deep, subtle, feminine and psychic. To say this is a feminine energy does not mean to say this energy is just for women. Men and women have their female and male aspects. We all develop them both.

The crescent moon symbolises new beginnings and the making of dreams into reality. Because of this cyclic nature the moon it is also connected to rebirth and how our true essence really is immortal.

Silver Dreamcatcher Necklace with Turquoise Blue Bead, Boho Necklace, Hippie Necklace, Feather Necklace, Gift for Her, Friendship Gift

The Ojibwe people (also Ojibwa), or Chippewa are a large group of Native American and have an ancient legend about the origin of the dreamcatcher. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dreamcatchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.

Turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

Featured Etsy Shop - MythicSculptlore

Welcome Shop Owner Kathryn Fotorny

I started sculpting in 2008 and was instantly drawn to it; each lump of clay could have endless possibilities. Since I've always loved accessories, creating jewelry seemed like a natural fit. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I currently live in a tiny apartment right outside the “gorges” Ithaca, NY. There's no room for a studio, much less a dining room table, so every nook has become a storage compartment and every surface a work space. Thankfully, I don't need machines or fancy tools, but instead just my clay-covered hands and a healthy imagination.

Featured Shop - JamJamsJam

Welcome Shop Owner - Maggie

My days are fun and busy being a stay at home mama to my one year old son, Jack. The decision to open a shop on Esty came about after my son was born. I wanted a job that allowed me to be home with him while also doing something I love. Jack is the inspiration for the items I make as well as the shop name, JamJamsJam. I studied at Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a focus on textile design. I enjoy all kinds of crafting and anything DIY. Whether it's reupholstering a bench or canning veggies, I love learning how to do new things that interest me.
