Unique Full Moon Tree of Life Pendants

I’ve been on a kick making unique and limited edition Full Moon Tree of Life pendants lately. In addition to the ones regularly available in my shop, I’ve recently added several new ones as well.

First, is a one-of-a-kind piece. Featuring Fire Crackle Blue Agate in Gunmetal Wire:

This one of a kind Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant features a striking Fire Crackle Blue Agate gemstone moon set in bare, gunmetal wire wrapped branches. (Click to purchase)


Fire Crackle Agate is made by taking a natural agate and heating it, which causes unique patterns within and enhancing the stone. The blue is a deep, rich, dark royal blue with darker “veins” of color throughout.

THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND PIECE. I bought a small assortment of Fire Cracked Agate with each being a different color. I paired this particular one with the gunmetal wire. It’s like the color of hematite; that dark near-black metallic. When it sells, I do not have another to offer at this time.

Then, there’s a a duo: my “Blood Moon” trees featuring red carnelian agate set in either silver or gold wire.

Blood Moon – Tree of Life Pendant in Gold Brass Wire with Red Agate Gemstone Full Moon Limited Edition (Click to purchase)


It features a large, red agate gemstone round bead representing a “blood moon” behind the branches. According to folklore, October’s full moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon” or sometimes the “Blood Moon.” It gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. During a lunar eclipse, the moon actually appears to be a deep red in the sky as a result of the sun’s light interacting with the Earth’s atmosphere.

Blood Moon – Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver Wire with Red Agate Gemstone Full Moon Limited Edition (Click to purchase)


The Blood Moon is a Limited Edition tree. I bought a very small assortment of these specific agate gems and I’ve divided the availability up between silver and gold offerings. There are a total of TWO silver and TWO gold available and that’s it.

This is of course, in addition to the other Full Moon series which is ALWAYS available in the shop.

Purple Moon, Under A Full Moon, Halloween Moon and Once in a Blue Moon

And, I have even more on the way soon! Keep checking back. I’m also always happy to customize a tree for you with your choice of wire, stones, and colors. Since they’re made entirely from scratch anyway, there’s no problem in making it personalized.

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!
