Artisans: Nadira Alaraj
Material: 100% sterling silver
The pendant of this beautiful necklace resembles two entangled leaves of the olive tree. To produce the pendant, our artisian Nadira uses the technique of silver casting, by placing the olive leaves on a wax bar and thus converting each olive leaf into a unique silver piece that represents an original olive leaf from the gardens of Bethlehem. The olive tree has dominated the local countryside for thousands of years, and has a strong culture significance for Palestinian and Israelis alike. At the same time the olive branch is an international symbol of peace.
