What’s New At PhoenixFire Designs!

I desperately need to drum up some sales. Things have been so slow for over a week now and I’m honestly panicking looking at the dwindling balance in my account. With surgery 12 days away (and counting!) and $600 still to go, PLUS trying to build a little bit of a safety net while I’m in recovery for living expenses, I do not need to be this stressed over finances in addition to the stress and fear over surgery!

So here’s the latest items listed on the shop in case you missed them. Click any image for more information and how to buy.

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.

Steampunk Clockwork Bee Pendant and Brooch

Newest item in the PhoenixFunds Medical Fundraiser Shop is this cool steampunk item! Highly detailed metal bee charm is decorated with clockwork gears and tiny little genuine ruby gemstone accents making a very cool steampunk pendant or brooch.

This piece has a pendant loop to be worn as a necklace and it also has a pin back so it can be worn as a brooch. The bee’s back has been altered to include Swiss clockwork gears, parts and other steampunk touches. The vintage watch is Swiss movement with seventeen (17) natural rubies and made by the Crysler Watch Co.

Total length is approximately 1.45″ long and just a little short of 2″ at it’s widest point. Unique, one-of-a-kind piece!

All proceeds for this item go towards medical bills and upcoming surgery expenses so your support is greatly appreciated. This and many other neat items are available in the PhoenixFunds Medical Fundraiser Shop!

Citrine Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver

Palest honey toned citrine gemstones in button rondelles are the centerpiece of this Tree of Life pendant set in sterling silver wire.

The citrine in this piece is a lovely, flawlessly clear pale honey tone. They are “button” rondelles with the tiniest hint of iridescence as they catch the light. It’s such a delicate tone like the lightest little touch of sunshine.

Citrine is a semi-precious stone in the quartz family. Citrine has been called the “stone of the mind” and is known as the lucky “Merchants Stone”. It’s said to bring luck to those in sales by placing a piece in the cash drawer. Citrine is also used as an alternative to the November birthstone, Yellow Topaz, due to it’s similar color.

This is just a beautiful piece. Warm and sunny and yet dainty and slightly delicate in style, it’s just a pendant that makes you smile.

Under A Full Moon

Every time I list my Under A Full Moon Tree of Life pendant, it sells out. I don’t make them very frequently but I finally had a chance to make another one up, so I’ve listed it in the shop.

“Under A Full Moon” 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. This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Dark silver colored wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This tree is bare of leaves like one would see in Winter and features a large, white pearl round disk “full moon” behind the branches. This piece has a very mystical feeling to me and a stillness to it as well.

Pendant available for purchase HERE in my shop.
