Steampunk Penny Farthing Necklace

This Steampunk necklace features a vintage inspired Penny Farthing bicycle charm in brass, accented with watch gears, roses, butterfly charm and crystal on 18″ chain.

This piece starts with a large, decorative Penny Farthing bicycle pendant in brass (or antique, aged gold color) measuring 3″ at it’s widest and 2.5″ at it’s tallest.

I have then embellished it with several accents including a large aqua/turquoise blue rose on the front wheel, genuine watch gears on the smaller back wheel (including a genuine, precious ruby in the clock movement), and a tiny Swarovski crystal in the gears.

There is also a butterfly charm added to the front wheel and two chains dangling from the bottom. The chains are mixed metals; one is a textured brass chain, the other, a silvery black metallic. Small, matching flowers in aqua/turquoise and orange/peach hang from the chains.

The pendant is finished with a 3-in-1 bronze chain and spring ring clasp with a total length of chain plus pendant of approximately 22″

It’s fun, whimsical and has a nice Victorian/Vintage style and feel.

Snowman Earrings and Snowman withSnowflake Necklace

Maybe it’s just because we’re having a bit of a cold front here today in Florida or maybe it’s that because of surgery, I kinda had to miss out on Halloween, but either way, I’m starting to get into the holiday mood. So I made up two items in a Winter spirit that I’m going to share.


These cute little snowmen dangle earrings are made from glass pearls and Swarovski crystal. On a .925 sterling silver hook, it’s a perfect accessory for Winter!

I made these adorable little earrings with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” I used stamped, .925 Sterling Silver French hooks to complete it to ensure there are no problems for people with metal allergies or sensitivities.

I made this adorable little snowman pendant with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” Then I added a glittery snowflake charm and strung it on a 18″ sterling silver plated chain and finished it with a lobster claw clasp.

Both pieces are available in the Gifts Under $25 category on the PhoenixFire Designs esty shop.

Custom Swarovski Crystal Bracelet

I made this piece as a Mother’s Day gift. Her mom wears a lot of blue and brown and that’s a great color combo together so I ran with it. I used some Swarovski crystal accents, genuine Swarovski crystals in round and bicone and finished it with a Swarovski clasp. It’s pretty enough for a special occasion but can also be worn everyday to work or just out for the day.

As always, if you have an idea for a unique, truly one-of-a-kind piece, just email me! I’m happy to discuss what you have in mind and make something special just for you.

Four Seasons Tree

All four seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter – are represented in this beautiful sterling silver pendant. With Peridot, Aventurine, Carnelian and Quartz gemstones as the colors of the year.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This Tree features four separate and unique gemstones to represent the Four Seasons.

Spring (Peridot) – Peridot is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in the most amazing green color. The birthstone of August, it has been considered sacred and a symbol of purity for thousands of years. It was considered a stone of Springtime and a gift of Mother Nature by the Ancients. It is a stone of lightness and beauty and is said to enhance wellness in the spiritually aware.

Summer (Dark Green Aventurine) – Aventurine comes in several colors. This particular color is one I just got in and it’s stunning. It has an inner sparkle to it due to the mica content in the quartz matrix. Green Aventurine is the stone of luck and chance. It is said to increase perception and creative insight and is associated with the heart chakra.

Autumn (Red Carnelian) – Red Carnelian is a natural gemstone with an interesting past. Originally it was strictly the property of the noble class and people of high social standing were often buried with this stone. Associated with the Second Chakra (the spleen), it is said to give energy, aide in the prevention of negative vibrations and calm the temper. It’s also known as an energy booster, red carnelian is said to draw energy flows to the wearer.

Winter (Clear Quartz Crystal) – Quartz crystal is a clear variety of quartz that was first found high in the frozen mountains of the Alps. Ancient people believed it was a form of ice crystals that would never melt. It is said to have cooling powers and is a romantic stone.

This Tree is a beautiful representation of the Wheel of the Year and would be a wonderful gift for anyone who is attuned to the seasons such as Wiccans, Witches, Pagans and other Earth-lovers or truly anyone who simply loves the beauty of each season.

The piece measures approximately 1.5″ in height (not including bail) and 1.5″ in width. This is only the second Four Season Tree I’ve offered so it’s making it’s repeat performance on this listing.

Pendant available HERE.

Custom Order – Sorcerer’s Stone

I made this custom necklace for someone who had a vision of what the Sorcerer’s Stone (or, for those of you in the UK, Philosopher’s Stone) from the Harry Potter series would look like. It started with a focal point featuring a massive piece of genuine, full leaded Swarovski crystal in the stunning color, Crystal Red Magma. I wire-wrapped it and added it to a simple antique gold (bronze) rose accent and matching chain. At the end of the lobster-claw clasp is a bicone crystal dangle in the same color.

She was thrilled with the result:

Isn’t it amazing? It’s a giant crystal that looks like it could have been plucked straight out of the movie! I love it so much! Thanks again PhoenixFireDesigns!
