Trees in Progress and Finished

Thought it might be interesting to share some photos of pendants being made as well was their final images. The in-progress shots are just quick shots from my cell phone, so forgive the low quality. But, as you can see, last week, I had a whole batch of trees I was working on. These were made over two days for orders, restocks and swaps.

And here are what some of those finished pieces look like:

Here is another tree in progress with it’s finished version

As you can see, it takes a lot of tools and time to make a completed pendant! I put a lot of love and care into each of my pieces and I hope it shows when you receive it.

You can shop for these and other pendants HERE in the shop!

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.

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!

Once In A Blue Moon (Return)

My Once In A Blue Moon Pendant is available once again. I don’t make these very often (about once in a blue moon – ha!) so it’s best to grab it when you can.

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.

Pendant available for purchase (while it lasts!) HERE.
