Congratulations to Miss M Turner!

She enjoys working with gemstones and wire to create Tree of Life pendants, which has become the design she’s best known for. It’s still her favorite design to make.

Despite the hot summer temperatures, I felt a change today: an early morning coolness, crickets, slightly shorter days. The harvest will soon be with us and with it, frosty mornings and bright colors. Life is good!

Here in Florida, we’re still WELL in the grip of summer, but it’s nice to think about Autumn! Pendant is available in the shop HERE.

Full Moon

I relisted two of my very popular Full Moon Tree of Life pendants. Both haven’t been available in the shop for months so last night, I remedied that and made one of each!


Under A Halloween Moon – Tree of Life Pendant with Orange Pearl Coin Bead in Black Wire
Happy Halloween! This Spooky Tree of Life Pendant with bare branches in black wire under a full, orange moon. Perfect for the season but wearable all year also.

– and –


Once In A Blue Moon – Tree of Life Pendant in Silver Wire with Aqua Blue Pearl Shell
This is a unique take on the popular Tree of Life pendants I’m famous for. There are no “leaves” in this piece. Instead, it celebrates bare branches of a tree against a night sky.

Both are available right now in the shop. But only for as long as they last! This style is very popular but it’s kinda of a pain to make so I don’t make it often. It’s normally months inbetween availability to snag it when you can if you want it!
