Cedar reminds me of playing in the forest as a child. I remember my brothers building a tree house in a sturdy cedar.
Cedar is also one of the medicines of indigenous people on Turtle Island (North America). In the barren winter they would boil cedar to make a nutritious tea – giving them the vitamin C that was needed to survive.
This necklace is a reminder of all the things we need to stay healthy in body, mind and soul – the playfulness of a child in the forest and the wisdom of the elders.
