Cross Section Pendant - Etched Copper Tree Rings Necklace
A beautiful handcrafted copper pendant with an etching of a cross section of a real tree.
The life of a tree is recorded in its inner markings and growth rings. These markings can tell us a great deal about the tree - not only its age and size, but also what kind of conditions it grew in over the years.
Many things affect the way a tree grows, altering the shape, size, colour, and uniformity of the rings. Things like fire, drought, floods and plague will scar the wood and show their face in the rings.
In a way, a cross section is a type of map of the life of a tree, marking its journey through time.
