The Tree Goddess is powerfull necklace. Seeds are combined with glass beads with metalic shine. The necklace is made out of styrax and Job's tears seeds. Glass goddess is handmade in my studio.
The necklace is 50 cm long and can be extended up to 57 cm. The blue goddess is 2,5 cm tall.
All seeds of styrax tree are hand drilled, they come from our botanical nursery where my husband planted the tree to atract bees. Also interesting is that the tree is the "official" source of styrax, an herbal medicine known from ancient times.
