Open-Air Mandala, with Storied Amber: Pendant

The genuine amber bead in the center of this mandala radiates the warmth and glow of soft firelight.

Layered inside a hand-formed swirl, and a hand-stamped mandala circle, this piece exudes both energy, and calm – all at once.

This amber bead has a fascinating history, originating as a liquid drop of the protective sap of an evergreen tree, millions of years ago.

The tree fell, and was subsequently buried and compressed by unfathomable geological changes.

Perhaps an entire mountain range lay atop our dear tree, and this bit of amber sap.

Under the intense weight and pressure, over millions of years, this bit of amber sap transformed into its current fossilized form.

The bead you wear at the center of this powerful piece used to be the lifeblood of an evergreen tree!

This speaks to the continuity and interconnectedness of plant life, animal life, human life, and the life of the planet Earth.

Feel that profound continuity and interconnectedness when you wear this very special mandala.

Hand-stamped featherlight aluminum, with hand-formed aluminum wire swirl, and amber bead.
