Custom Full Moon Tree of Life Pendants

For as many years as I’ve been at this and as many variations as I’ve made, I’m always amazed at the creativity of my customers in coming up with even more variations then I imagined! It’s why I’ve always been happy to offer customized and personalized pendants in the shop. People come up with ideas I don’t think of!

Here’s a collection of some of the recent custom full moon trees I’ve made lately by customer request. All of these are from the past couple weeks and it just goes to show how many more options and variations are possible!

The traditional silver one (left) gets a new spin by request when set in brown wire instead (right.) Both versions available to order.

Brown wire with a dark aqua dyed shell coin moon gives a great take on the popular brown and blue color combo! Available to order.

My rainbow moonstone full moon tree of life gets a different feel in this gunmetal wire. Available as custom order!

Using my fire crackle agate in green, this customer was able to give her mom a full moon pendant featuring her favorite color. Available as custom order.

As you can see, there are so many unique ways to personalize a pendant to your style and likes! Feel free to check out the options in the shop, order your own custom full moon tree or feel free to contact me about getting your own custom piece!

Thank you as always for your support.

Featured Shop Interview

I am featured today HERE today on the Original Self Taught Artists blog!!

Featured Shop-Interview with Ms. M. Turner from PhoenixFire Designs

Original Self Taught Artists (or OSTAT) is a great team on Etsy centered around those of us who are, well, self-taught artists! 😉 It’s a very friendly team focused on helping each other and promoting fellow artists.

I was interviewed a couple weeks ago and my feature is live today on the blog. In it, I talk about my shop, my creative process, how I got started, tips for new shop owners, my hobbies and more. It’s a really great article and I hope everyone will head over and take a read.

Thanks to OSTAT for the chance to share my story and I’m honored to be featured on the blog!

Here Comes the Sun

My Sun Tree is a unique take on the popular Full Moon Tree of Life Pendants I’m famous for. Featuring a warm yellow jade sun set in sterling silver plated wire, this is a little warm piece of a sunny day.

Here Comes the Sun – Tree of Life with a Yellow Jade “Sun”

The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This tree is bare of leaves and features a large yellow jade round “sun” behind the branches. It warms up the piece reminding me of high noon on the Solstice.

I’ve long made “night” versions with various Full Moons, but I wanted to celebrate the bright warmth of a sunny day in this piece. The color is so sunny and happy, it’s a little bit of wearable sunshine!

Available for purchase HERE at PhoenixFire Designs.
