Cherry Blossom Tree of Life Pendant in Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystal

Rainbow moonstone is accented with tiny pink Swarovski crystal bicones in this Cherry Blossom inspired Tree of Life Pendant.

The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered silver wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Rainbow Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. It’s a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. The moonstone is said to help one perceive that which “is” and is an excellent choice for meditation or self awareness. Because of it’s tie to emotions and the moon, it’s said to be a woman’s gemstone. Rainbow Moonstone also features a unique inner fire of color and as it catches the light, it shifts through tones of blues and a natural iridescence.

Hidden among the moonstone are eight tiny genuine Swarovski crystal bicones in a warm pink. This gives the piece a look of a Cherry Blossom tree in bloom. It was this image that inspired this pendant. The cool, icy feel of the moonstone and the warm, rich pink crystal just plays off each other really well and makes for a great contrast of Spring and Winter.

Tunduru Sapphire Tree of Life Pendant

Stunning Tunduru (Tundra) Sapphire in a range of reds, oranges and browns make up this gorgeous Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver Wire. Tunduru Sapphire (also known as “Tundra Sapphire”) is like the most perfect riot of Autumn colors.

The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered silver wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Tunduru Sapphire (also known as “Tundra Sapphire”) is named for the region of Tanzania where sapphire and other gems are mined. Tunduru Sapphire is actually a mix of gemstones including andalusite, hessonite, sapphire and garnets of varying colors- pyrope, almandine, spessartite, grossularite, hessonite, rhodolite. This mix gives it the amazing color range that makes it so sought-after. Tunduru Sapphire contains both precious and semi-precious stones.

The Tunduru Sapphire gems in this piece are stunning. Micro faceted and a range of rich, saturated color. Just like the most stunning Autumn trees. Because the gems were so delicately drilled, I had to use a very fine gauge wire for this tree, giving it a more wispy, airy look.

The Tunduru Sapphires are AA+ grade gems and super luxe and I was able to get a very small amount at a relatively reasonable price – just enough for this single pendant. This is a one-of-a-kind piece and I used my entire supply on this Tree so you will receive the exact pendant shown.

Medical Fundraiser – Pure Silver Hydrangea Flower Blossom

Pure silver Hydrangea Flower Blossom Pendant on 16″ Sterling Chain. Another of our Medical Fundraiser items, this one was donated by Neva and is just gorgeous!

From the artist:

I picked and dried this beautiful hydrangea flower and coated it in layer after layer of precious metal clay, then added some little balls to the center. The process took days to complete and the result is incredible.

Once fired the leaf and all impurities burn away, leaving behind only silver. Has a nice, natural oxidation and patina.

Rainbow Gemstone Threader Sterling Silver Earrings

Six genuine gemstones (ruby, yellow sapphire, emerald, blue topaz, amethyst and white topaz) form a rainbow of color on sterling silver ear threads.

I started with a sterling silver, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The ear threads are .925 sterling silver as well and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals.

The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby – one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Yellow Sapphire – Another of the four precious gemstones, sapphire comes in many colors including this lovely yellow. Traditionally blue sapphire is the birthstone of September.

* Emerald – the third precious gemstone in this piece, emerald is the birthstone of May and an amazing green stone without peer.

* Blue Topaz – A semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. It’s an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst – Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz – White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. It’s used as an alternative to diamond for April’s birthstone. Also semi-precious.

Threader style earrings allow you to adjust how long or short you wish to wear them. The gemstones measure about .25″ in length and the total length of the threader plus gems is right around 3.25″

They’re dainty and feminine. They would be a lovely gift for someone who likes rainbow colors, or who is interested in chakra healing and colors.

They would also be a very special gift for a young woman who may not want or need a large pair of earrings but for whom a pair of sterling silver gemstone earrings would be a special gift. It could be a pair of “grown up” jewelry all her own.

I only have the one pair of these at this time as I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. To individually purchase this many stones to make a pair would be quite expensive so this is a great way to get some high quality gems in a lovely little, affordable package.

Swarovski Crystal Baroque Pendant Dangle Necklace

Stunning Swarovski crystal baroque pendant is the focal point of this dangle necklace. Featuring clusters of AB crystal on Figaro sterling silver chain.

Swarovski is world-renowned for it’s stunning crystal. Made in Austria, it’s the best crystal in the world. I use it exclusively in this stunning piece.

I started this pendant with a 22mmx15mm Baroque Pendant in AB finish. Then I made clusters of AB xillion 4mm bicones for a total of 4″ of dangle. The clusters graduate in size from 5 at the bottom, to four, three and then two. The dangle is then attached to a 16″ Figaro chain plated in sterling silver. It’s finished with a toggle clasp accented with additional AB Swarovski crystals.

The AB Finish (“Aurora Borealis”) is amazing and gives the crystal an inner fire like no other. As the light hits the crystal you get an explosion of color across the whole rainbow spectrum. Fiery orange, blues, greens, yellows – as the light plays across the crystal, it changes with each motion and just amazing when worn.

I made this necklace with a bride’s big moment in mind. Think how amazing the AB Swarovski crystal will look around her neck as she walks down the isle. Every camera flash will make the crystal come to life.

This pendant would also be perfect for a special event or formal occasion where you want to really shine. Though simple in style, the elegance and amazing quality of the crystal make it something special.
