In Old Norse mythology, Ygdrasil is the great ash tree that holds earth, heaven and hell together with its roots and branches. The organic, stylized tree form etched on the center wood bead of this 16" necklace could harken to this great tree of old and be a reminder for the deep power of roots and branches. Red leopardskin jasper and dyed freshwater pearls show good earth tones and contrast nicely with sterling silver accents.

  • leopardskin jasper beads
  • dyed freshwater pearls

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The beading cord and components should be robust to any toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
