Simply Wood Rings Celebrates with Birthwood
We here at Simply Wood Rings are excited to announce the launch of a new line called Birthwood! The name itself is pretty enticing, so you are probably asking yourself, what exactly is a Birthwood? Birthwood is more of an idea than one type of wood. It incorporates numerous kinds of wood and uses the wood’ s symbolization to represent all types of life in its message.
The tree has been a symbol for humans throughout our time on Earth, spanning histories, geographies, religions, and mythologies. It is a symbol of the interconnections of all life, reaching out to the sky with its branches and down into the Earth with its roots. Trees breath life into the world we live in, and help give birth to new life every day. Staying true to these ancient ideas we have created Birthwood as a representation of each client according to which month and tree they were born under. These ideas pull heavily from Celtic and Native American beliefs and folklore and focus on the way that we inevitably carry a connection with us to all other living things on earth.
My birthday is actually in a few days, and I learned that my Birthwood for October is maple. The maple tree symbolizes offering, generosity, balance, promise and practicality. I can’t say that I wouldn’t want a Birthwood piece of jewelry for my birthday this month (hint hint to anyone who knows me personally). This new line is perfect for gifting to a special person in your life as a birthday present or a present to represent a new start in someone’s life. Below is a list of every month and their specific type of wood, take a look to see what your personal wood type is!
