You can think of an alder tree as a pioneer—it can grow where other trees can’t. Wherever it grows, it improves the fertility of the soil so that other plants and trees can follow. It’s a trailblazer tree.
The pine cones of the alder tree are dense and intricate, making them perfect for casting in silver. This necklace is one-of-a-kind because I cast an actual twig and pine cone trio each time. It is a lovely standalone piece and is also great for layering. This delicate yet sturdy alder cone necklace is a lovely way to remind yourself to keep forging your own path.
This necklace pairs nicely with the Twig and Alder Pine Cone Dangle Earrings.
**Note: because each necklace is cast from different trios of pine cones, there will be slight variation from what you see in the picture. Each necklace will contain three alder cones, but the shape will vary slightly.
