Purple Agate Geode Slice Tree of Life Pendant Fluorite Gemstone Sterling Silver Wire

It’s been over a year since I’ve offered one of my award-winning agate slice trees but I’m happy to report, I have one up on the shop right now!

A stunning amethyst purple agate geode slice is the base for this wire wrapped tree of life pendant featuring green and purple fluorite in sterling silver wire.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. This is an even more complex piece from my normal ones as I built a tree “growing” up an agate slice base. Non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the slice and is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

The leaves are in the complimentary gemstone, fluorite. Formerly called fluorspar, fluorite has a wide range of colors and is a beautiful stone because often more than one color occurs in a single piece. I’ve selected a purposefully staggered color of stones ranging from the palest green to the deepest amethyst purple to give the piece vibrancy and beautiful spread of color.

This pendant is approximately 2.5″ H x 1.75″ W not including bail. This is a bold, statement piece. Keep in mind that this is a natural stone and is not a perfect oval. Part of the charm of this piece is that it is truly one-of-a-kind by Nature.

I’ve offered a handful of agate slice trees in the past but it’s been about a year since one was available. They are labor-intensive to make and thus a rare item on the shop. If you like it, please do not wait as duplicates are not possible due to the unique nature of the materials used. This piece is literally unique and absolutely one-of-a-kind and of course you will receive the exact pendant shown.

With the colors and tones used (the deep purples very much like amethyst) it would also be a great gift for someone born in February. Amethyst is the birthstone of February and this definitely has that kind of colorway and feel to it!

Brown Agate Slice Tree of Life Pendant

A natural slice of variegated brown agate is the base for this unique Tree of Life pendant. Genuine Hessonite Garnet gemstones and sterling silver wire form the leaves and branches of the piece.

This pendant starts with a natural slice of agate geode in variegated tones of brown. Inside the agate are “rings” of amber and cream like you’d find on a slice of tree trunk. The stone is wrapped with antique bronze wire. Then using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques, sterling silver-plated wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches. It has been specially treated to be non-tarnish to keep it’s luster. Genuine Hessonite Garnet rondelles form the “leaves” of the tree.
