Black Onyx Tree of Life Earrings
Black onyx and Sterling Silver earrings.
The symbolism of the Celtic Tree of Life is ultimately about the forces of nature combining to create balance and harmony. The branches reach for the sky, the roots reach down into the ground. A representation of the link between heaven and earth, mind and body and the never ending cycle of life. The Celts believed that the Tree of Life was a symbol of longevity, wisdom and strength. They even believed that trees were actual ancestors of man and provided a gateway to the spirit world. Another meaning is one of rebirth. The tree sheds it leaves as the weather turns colder and bursts into life with the arrival of Spring.
