Another example of a custom piece. She wanted something with June and July birthstones. June is traditionally pearl, but instead of pearl, she wanted something a little more “gem” looking. I researched some options for her and ultimately, we went with Rainbow Moonstone. It’s a really lovely, semi-opaque stone with an inner fire that sparkles and catches the light.
I think this is just a lovely result. Ruby is one of four precious gemstones (along with Diamond/April, Emerald/May, and Sapphire/September) but I was able to find some gorgeous ruby rondelles for a reasonable price and paired them with the rainbow moonstone button beads. The tree is set in sterling silver wire.
One of many examples of birthstone trees and custom Family Trees I have made lately. Want one of your own? Email! I’d love to make something personal for you too.

I made a custom piece featuring a cameo in a black with red accent color scheme. She liked a modern twist on a vintage/retro style and had examples of pieces she liked which I used as the basis for this necklace. The dual strand necklace features a nice cameo which sits off-center and is accented with both black and red faceted glass beads. It’s approximately 18″ in length and finished with a toggle clasp.

She was very pleased with the necklace. I also made matching earrings (not shown.)
I received some AWESOME jewelry from PhoenixFireDesigns!! … Thank you SOO much! I love it all!

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.

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!
As always, if you have an idea for something unique, or you are inspired and wish to have something created just for you – let me know. I’d love to create something unique and beautiful for you as well.

I had a request to make a bird nest pendant with one pink and one blue Swarovski glass pearl; one each to represent a boy and a girl child. In addition, there is a sterling silver butterfly pendant to represent the Grandmother that has passed away. I completed the bracelet with a heart toggle clasp – just a little extra touch to show the love of the piece.
Here’s the finished result:
I do offer Customizable Bird Nest Pendants HERE on my PhoenixFire Designs shop @ etsy. I can also make pink/blue (girl/boy) pendants by request as well as other items such as this bracelet. You have an idea, I’ll make it happen!

Here’s a custom piece I just finished last night. It was based on another piece that they really liked. I spent about a month ordering supplies from all over the world and waiting for them to arrive. Then I set about breaking down the pattern and figuring out how it all came together. I did it assembly-line style, counting out the groups of pieces I’d need. Once all the parts were ready, I assembled them all into one, cohesive necklace.
Took about four hours of assembly time total.
It was a challenge but it was fun stretching myself into something completely different. Don’t forget, I gladly accept custom orders so please contact me if you’d like something unique of your own. And check out the items for sale on PhoenixFireDesigns.com and PhoenixFire Designs @ Etsy.
