Stark branches, roots and imperfect circles give this necklace a primitive look that suits its subject.
When the mystical symbol of a pentagram is enclosed by a circle it is regarded as a 'pentacle', wherein the circle protects the powerful properties of the pentagram. And the circle itself is a symbol of the earth and moon, the cyclic nature of life, infinity, and harmony. So all these meanings have been bound together in this slightly occult-looking necklace.
An upright five-pointed pentagram suspended on either side of the tree is protected by a circle which has been formed by the branches and roots of a very woody tree of life. The curving of the limbs really highlights the circles, making them resonate.
This is a necklace with a look that is rustic by design and also due to the nature of its casting. It's very dramatic as well because of its sharp, stark lines and no-frills approach.
