Rooted In Love

Celebrate the power of love and unity with California artist Cynthia Webb's stunning tree of life medallion. Symbolic twists of budding branches stretch and intertwine in gorgeous harmony inside its rounded trim. A beautiful representation of the sacred union of marriage and the family it creates.

"Some things, when together, are more complete than when standing alone," says Webb.

Inspired by faith and family, Webb hand-carved this intricate family tree motif in jeweler's wax to set the mold from which this pewter token is cast. The finishing touch calls for polishing, oxidizing and a swiping a veneer of lacquer over its delicate, handmade finish.

Mounted on eucalyptus-green and soft white matting, each piece comes signed, framed and ready to hang. Handmade in California.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.

Cynthia Webb

Cynthia Webb is a San Diego, California artist who specializes in the design of handcrafted pewter gifts. Her work is known for its fine detail, which is evident on both the front and the back of her pieces. Her designs range from simple hearts to complex angels and crosses.

Beginning with an idea, Cynthia sketches until she is satisfied that she has captured her original thought on paper. She carves the design in jeweler's wax, signs and titles the piece on the back in the original wax. The wax is then cast and a mold is made, which allows duplicate pieces to be created. After the pewter is cast, the pieces are hand-finished, oxidized and polished. A thin lacquer coating is applied to prevent further oxidation.

Cynthia's most popular designs capture her earliest and most enduring inspirations--home, family, faith and nature. The early influence of a creative family and the inspiration of world travel guided her to a career in the arts. Her introduction to jewelry making began in London, where she lived briefly prior to commencing studies in architecture at the University of Houston. Her work is all hand crafted in the USA.

"I'm inspired through the creation of 'Art that tugs on one's heart strings.' I hope to remind each of us of that special occasion, person or place we connect with in our past or present lives."

Cynthia feels strongly that her gifts and success are to be shared and she gladly supports several non-profit organizations by way of donations from the sale of specific items. These include charities tied to seniors in need, cancer awareness and children with autism. collection

    Comments about PERFECT UNION WALL ART:

    This was the Perfect Gift I chose to give my Daughter and her Husband for their 10th Wedding Anniversary. I searched diligently for the perfect gift and came across uncommongoods.com. I fell in love with this one "Perfect Union" and my Daughter LOVED everything about it. She is very particular about items to display in her home. It fit nicely in the decor of her home but also in her heart, she was very impressed with the packaging, gift wrapping, etc. Very nicely done. Thank You

                  Comments about PERFECT UNION WALL ART:

                  I recently purchased The Perfect Union Wall Art as a wedding gift for a friend of mine. After reading some of the previous reviews, I was bracing myself for the piece to look small. However, when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised! I feel that this piece is a perfect size and is not overbearing. My friend reached out to me thanking me for the gift and informed me that both she and her husband loved the gift and think it is absolutely beautiful! High Five!! (for me for purchasing and to the artist for making it) :)

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery prompt and on time. Piece was packaged in bubble wrap and a box inside the mailing box.

                      I purchased this piece as a shower gift for a bride-to-be. She thought it was lovely and asked where I'd found it. Several guests at the shower commented on the uniqueness and elegance of Cynthia Webb's artwork, and the fact that it would serve as a lasting keepsake for the soon-to-be-married couple. I was so pleased with the beauty and quality of the piece and how well it was received that I ordered Webb's "Connected By Love" as a counterpart and a wedding gift.
