The tree of life is a symbol which appears in a variety of different cultures. In most religions, it represents not only fertility and rebirth, but also the connection between the realms of earth and sky. It appears in Kabballah, as well as in sacred geometry. Within the Norse pantheon, some practitioners connect the tree of life with Yggdrasil, the World Tree. For many Pagans and modern Wiccans, the tree has personal meaning -- it often can symbolize rebirth and fertility, spiritual journeys, and growth.

If you'd like to make a tree of life pendant to wear, you can make one like this with just a few basic craft supplies.

You'll need:

  • Jewelry wire
  • Seed beads
  • Needlenose pliers
  • A chain or cord
