"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... "

This ornament was inspired by the poem above. I know that the wire-wrapping isn't perfect, but gosh this was an EXTREMELY difficult design and is truly one-of-a-kind. Even if I wanted to, I don't think I could re-create this lol. I hope everyone enjoys this, and I hope its meaning will be comfort to anyone who has lost a beloved pet :heart:

:Edit:
My second Daily Deviation?!?! I don't even know what to say, but thank you so much!! To pyro-helfier for the thoughtful suggestion and to cakecrumbs for featuring me! :heart:


Edit: I made a second version! You can see it here: Rainbow Bridge (Version Two)

Oxidized creations bear no protective coating or false coloring of wire. This pendant will continue to tarnish and naturally change through the years.

The Tree of Life symbolizes spiritual growth and wisdom, strength, protection, and connectedness. It is a healthy model that inspires the spirit and encourages hope in all hearts.

These are delicate, wire wrapped pendants that should be handled with care. Some of the stones, glass, or shells used to create the tree can break if handled roughly.

Beautiful. I have to admit I wasn't quite sure what it was until I read the title and then it hit me. And made me smile and my eyes tear up. I have several wonderful felines who have crossed over the rainbow bridge. They are missed terribly, but I am also very lucky that I have several more currently sharing our household. :) Congrats on the DD for a lovely piece.
