Spirit of the Oak

April 21, 2009

Nature's beauty! I am really enjoying using gemstones for healing and well being with my leaf spirits lately, and although this could be worn as a pendant, I have transformed this lovely imprint of a Burr Oak, also called Mossycup Oak, as an ornament. Fashion forward fairies or renn folk could do double duty and use this as a focal pendant worthy of a goddess or fairy queen.

Sculpted using a combination of translucent Kato and pearl clay, I've added a layer of antiquing to bring out the detail in the veins and to show depth as well.

The hanger is multiple copper spirals accented with genuine Tiger's eye and a fire polished czech bead. A piece of lovely hand dyed raw silk ribbon finished with quartz leaves adds a lovely finishing touch!



Tiger's Eye is a stone of protection that is also very grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money.

Spirals represent the cycles of life and interconnectedness of all things.


Stop by my Etsy shop to see some of my new pieces, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Love your mystical oak faces! Also, using crystals for healing within you pieces is a great idea! I incorporate them into my healing work also!

Thanks for the lovely comments. The piece is 5" total length, but the leaf is 4".
