AAA-Grade, super luxe, micro faceted garnet teardrop briolettes are wrapped in sterling silver wire to form an amazing, one-of-a-kind Tree of Life pendant.
I truly put love and care into each piece I make. And I love for them to be cherished and enjoyed as much as I enjoy creating them. Every once in a while though, I am lucky enough to have a chance to make something *extra* special. And this is one of those pieces.
I used the most stunning, micro-faceted genuine garnet gemstone briolettes in this piece. They are tiny, tear-drop (or “pear”) shaped gems. Gemstones of this quality and with this detail of faceting are extremely expensive in the smallest of quantities. And this Tree uses *33* such stones!
I’m calling this completely one-of-a-kind piece, “Persephone” after the Greek goddess. She’s most famous for her association with the pomegranate and this piece just reminds me so much of that. This piece will not be recreated due to the expensive materials involved. I was lucky enough to get some garnet once but I don’t see another opportunity like that coming around again! Gemstones of this quality are honestly not normally in my budget.
I’ve hand-hammered sterling silver wire for the outer hoop and then used non-tarnish sterling silver wire for the roots, trunk and branches. The piece is approximately 1.25″ in height and width not including bail. It’s dainty and feminine but still striking enough to be noticed.
This is a truly unique piece and one I’m proud to offer in my shop. I hope you love it as much as I do.
