CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver made by hand in my workshop and of a beautiful dendritic agate from Java Island in Indonesia.
It was inspired by trees and more especially by the foliage of tree. This pendant is inspired by the leaf of oak trees and by the symbolism of this majesties tree. I then created a slender and round pattern, as is the leaf of the oak tree. Because of the material choice, this leaf could only belong to the white oak tree. I decided to bezel set a dendritic agate on this oak leaf because of two reasons: first, the white milky color of the matrix that perfectly matches the idea of the white oak.
The second reason is the dendritic effect in this agate. Here, this incrustation is more important that for other agates of this type. It also looks like a root. I therefore chose this special agate for this unique incrustation that is the focal point of this stone. It represents the strength of the oak tree as well as the idea of something inside the tree: maybe a shuteye? Or a dryad? (The Greek mythology nymphs who lived in tree trunks and more particularly oaks).
As for the symbolism of the tree oak, it would be impossible to make a complete list of it as it can be found in several civilizations around the world. It is a very special tree because it attracts thunder and symbolizes majesty. I will leave it up to you to check what symbol it represents for other civilizations as the Greek of the Roman ones…
This pendant is called Shiroi Ha, which means White Foliage in Japanese.
It is 6 x 3 cm (2.362 x 1.181 inches).
It is sanded, polished with a matte and oxidized finish.
