Real Birch leaves are picked from the tree and dipped in silver. This is carefully done to preserve all of the detail in the leaf like its veins and edges. The finished result are beautiful silver leaves used to make jewellery sets. Real leaves dipped in silver are strong and durable. Real leaf jewellery is a unique gift for all occasions.


Real leaf necklace meaning
Birch 'Lady of the woods' is one of the first trees to come into leaf and is a representation of the emergence of spring.
Real Birch leaf silver necklace and earrings set

In early Celtic mythology, the birch came to symbolise renewal and purification. It was celebrated during the festival of Samhain (now Halloween in Britain), the start of the Celtic year, when purification was also important. Bundles of birch twigs were used to drive out the spirits of the old year.

Birch besoms, or brooms were also the archetypal witches' broomsticks, used in their shamanic flights, perhaps after the use of extracts of the fly agaric mushrooms commonly found in birchwoods.

Deities associated with birch are mostly love and fertility goddesses, such as the northern European Frigga and Freya. Eostre (from whom we derive the word Easter), the Anglo Saxon goddess of spring was celebrated around and through the birch tree between the spring equinox and Beltane.
