Tree of Life

Nona Bushman's avatar Nona Bushman

For most of my life, the inspiration for much of my artwork has been Nature. I believe that God's creations in nature have perfect form. There are representations of different types of trees in many of my jewelry designs. The depiction of trees in my work is a favorite subject, because as they progress through their long lives and long after their deaths, the trees become more beautiful. Historically, the Tree of Life symbolizes Paradise and eternal life in Christian art. My "Tree of Life" is a pendant necklace, made out of sterling silver, copper, 14 karat gold and semi-precious stones. This sculptural neckpiece is a sheet metal fabrication, which may be worn and viewed from either the front or the back side.
