- Great Celtic Tree Pendant
The Great Celtic Tree Necklace
There is a Magical Realm called "Annwn," it is the enchanted realm of the "Tuatha de Danann," he original Irish race descended from the Celtic Goddess Dana. It is a realm of Youth and Promise, a land where "a fountain flows with sweet wine, where age and sickness are unknown." It is in this place that the innermost circle from which all life springs can be found.
Druids, Bards and Banshees traveled back and forth between the two worlds, their gates of passage being found in springs, caves, mighty trees and even in castle ruins. Look carefully at this original design to find the "wee folk" hiding in the tree, two lovers in an embrace, and Pentacles hidden in the leaves.
The "Great Tree" lives in the center of Annwn and is the first Tree of Creation. It is alice with Song, Dance, and Merry Making. From this first Great Tree the Mother Goddess Dana brought to Tara (Ireland) a Magical branch with three fruits; nuts, apples, and acorns. From this branch all the trees of the earth took rot
In Celtic legends, trees guard Sacred Wells and provide Healing, Shelter, and Wisdom. Trees carried messages to the other realm, and conferred blessings, To this day trees can be seen in the Irish countryside festooned with ribbons and pleas for Favors, Love, Healing, and Prosperity.
