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!

14K Gold Earrings Featuring Rainbow of Genuine Gemstones

A classically simple, dainty pair of earrings in 14k gold featuring a rainbow of genuine gemstones.

I started with a 14k gold filled, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The French hooks are 14k plated and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals.

The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby – one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Imperial Topaz – a very rare form of topaz, these are pale yellow in color. Topaz is the birthstone of November and is semi-precious.

* Green Tourmaline – Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors and this one is a lovely olive tone. Tourmaline is semi-precious.

* Blue Topaz – Another semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. It’s an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst – Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz – White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. It’s used as an alternative to diamond for April’s birthstone. Also semi-precious.

The earrings measure a total length just shy of 1.5″ long. They’re dainty and feminine. They would be a lovely gift for someone who likes rainbow colors, or who is interested in chakra healing and colors.

They would also be a very special gift for a young woman who may not want or need a large pair of earrings but for whom a pair of 14k gold gemstone earrings would be a special gift. It could be a pair of “grown up” jewelry all her own.

I only have the one pair of these at this time as I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. To individually purchase this many stones to make a pair would be quite expensive so this is a great way to get some high quality gems in a lovely little, affordable package.
