Birthwood Pendant- Apple wood & Peridot inlay
Our Birthwood pendants are made from mahogany wood with inlays of each Month’s Birthwood and birthstone. We chose mahogany because it of it’s strength & beauty.
Our Mahogany is salvaged from local artisans & craftsman who no longer can use the small pieces.
Apple wood represents the month of August. The apple tree is symbolic of strength, gentleness, abundance and giving. This wood is valued for its strength and fine grain.
John Chapman aka “Johnny Appleseed” planted a popular American variety, the Jonothan Apple, across the American wilderness in the late 1700s and early 1800s. His apple orchards in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky still exist. Some of the original trees he planted over two hundred years ago, still bear fruit!
We’ve paired our pendant with crushed Peridot which is August’s birthstone.
All Birthwood pendants take 2 weeks to create. Please contact us if you need earlier and we will try and accommodate your needs.
