About Rock Paper Tree

Rock Paper Tree is the etsy shop of Teresa (Tree) Peters, who blogs over at Spirit Grooves. I have so enjoyed the opportunity to get to know her through her blog and her always uplifting visits to mine, and I’ve long been impressed that she manages to have adventures with her daughter Em, make the unique and beautiful pieces for sale in her shop, and write regularly, too. She’s truly an inspiration, and I’m proud to be sharing her shop with you, as it’s a place where your money will be well spent. A few minutes of (browser) window shopping will brighten your day, too. Most of the items in the shop can be worn as jewelry, though they can also be displayed proudly as art, and most also make wonderful focus objects or tools for meditation. Each piece is made by hand using precious metals, crystals, and gemstones, and is a one of a kind piece of art you’ll be proud to own.

About the Birth Goddess Pendant

Is it bragging to say I was the first recipient of one of Tree’s gorgeous Birth Goddess pendants? Probably, and I was. I recently had a baby and early in my pregnancy, I received a sweet email asking for my address  and permission to send one of these gorgeous pieces. I  was so excited! In the end I received two, and wore one or the other of them almost every day until my baby arrived. These one of a kind pieces are not only eye catching, but they’re also a wonderful point of connection between you and your baby. The Goddess herself is made using sterling silver wire, with the stone in the center intended to represent a growing baby in the womb, while the small stone(s) in the goddess’s hair represents any children a woman already has. Each piece is one of a kind and Tree is happy to make custom pendants.

Life was rather busy and chaotic during my pregnancy, what with a move back from overseas, a busy toddler, and many other projects demanding my attention. Holding between my fingers the gemstone that represented my growing baby was a wonderful way to ground and calm myself as I communicated with the sweet little boy inside me. It was a wonderful stress reliever and reminder to connect with baby. It was also a great tool for connection on the day of my son’s birth, when I was exhausted from an already long labor and trying to remain calm through transition. I held the pendant in my hands as I spoke to my baby and asked his help.

I don’t think the woman’s figure is always immediately apparent to people seeing the necklace for the first time, but I had more compliments on it than I can count. The loop at the top of the pendant is large enough to accommodate any chain or cord, so you can wear your goddess wherever is comfortable for you. I prefer necklaces that hang above the neckline of my clothing, so I wore mine on a fairly short chain and found it to be absolutely perfect. I also tried wearing one on a long chain so that it hung just at the top of my belly, which looked great on a day that I was wearing a simple dress. The only negative with these came to my attention that day, however: When worn long, the pendant sometimes got caught on things when I bent over, which was a bit of an inconvenience. If you prefer to wear necklaces long and do a lot of bending over, this might be a problem for you. As for me, I hardly noticed it. Either way, it’s a perfect focus object for labor and a gorgeous piece to hang from your mirror, on your wall, or anyplace else.


You can purchase your own Birth Goddess at Rock Paper Tree. Since each one is unique, the prices vary, but among those in the shop right now, prices range from $18-$26 and shipping to either the US or Canada is only $3.00 for the first item and free for additional items. These would make a wonderful gift for a pregnant, paper pregnant, or soon-to-be pregnant woman, childbirth educator, or midwife on your list.
