Aphrodite Tree of Life Pendant

This Aphrodite Tree of Life Pendant is handcrafted with permanently colored pink copper wire, and silver plated copper wire, and features a lead and nickel-free Aphrodite charm. A genuine Swarovski crystal delicately shimmers behind the branches of the tree.

According to Greek legend, Aphrodite was born when Uranus’ penis got lopped off and fell into the sea. The sea, being the fertile thing that it is, was instantly impregnated. Aphrodite was born of this merger of sea and sky (Uranus being a sky god). She came ashore at Cyprus, riding in a large scallop shell.

Although Aphrodite is usually only known as a love goddess in modern times, she was originally a fertility/war goddess like Astarte or Ishtar. She is usually depicted as a beautiful woman or a mermaid and they say roses bloom at her feet. She is the queen of beasts and loves all wildlife.

Being one of our regular sized Tree of Life pendants, this design is two inches in diameter not including the bail. The bail is approximately half an inch tall.
