Loki Tree of Life Pendant
I used sterling silver plated copper wire and permanently colored gold and green copper wire to handcraft this Loki Tree of Life Pendant. I accented it with a lead and nickel free crescent moon charm, a lead and nickel free snake charm, a silver plated pewter setting, and a genuine Swarovski crystal.
Technically, Loki isn’t a god. He is a Jotun, aka a giant. He’s not really good but he’s also not really evil. He’s pure mischief and always up to something. He lives in Asgard even though he’s from Jotunheim (the land of the giants). He loves to make trouble for anyone and everyone, especially the gods.
He is a shape-shifter so he has the ability to appear as almost anyone. After he had played one prank too many, he was trapped in a cave with a snake suspended above his head. The snake dripped poison onto him until his wife came to help him. She held a bowl up to catch the venom but, alas, the bowl would fill up so she would have to go empty it.
Loki is married to Sigyn and they had two children. He was also married to a giantess named Angrboda and had three offspring with her. Hel (the goddess of the underworld), Fenrir (a wolf), and the Midgard Serpent, Jormungand.
Crescent Moon Symbolism
The word “crescent” comes from the Latin term ceres meaning to “bring forth, create,” and crescere, the Latin term for “grow, thrive.”
There are many symbols of crescent moons. Each symbol carries its own meaning.
The waning crescent symbolizes getting rid of negative energy in your life. A spiritual cleaning house so to speak. To get rid of any thing, person, or habit that might be harming you while a waxing crescent symbolizes growth and creativity. So, there is a lot of room for interpretation in this symbol. You really have to contemplate it and find what the crescent moon is trying to say to you.
The moon also represents these:
- Intuition, Inner Knowledge
The moon is the illumination between complete darkness and the sun’s complete light. It’s the elusive connection between consciousness and subconscious; the inbetween and unknown.
