Full Moon Trees Trilogy

My Under A Halloween Moon tree of life pendant has been a HUGE success for me. People really love it. And in the past, I’ve offered other versions of the “full moon” style on a very limited, custom order basis. That, however, has changed.

Now you can also order two additional versions; Under A Full Moon (silver wire with a white moon) AND “Once In A Blue Moon” (silver wire with a blue moon.) This completes my full moon “trilogy” as it were. 😉

Once In A Blue Moon + Under A Full Moon + Under A Halloween Moon

All three are now permanently available as made-to-order pieces in the shop!

Under A Full Moon

Every time I list my Under A Full Moon Tree of Life pendant, it sells out. I don’t make them very frequently but I finally had a chance to make another one up, so I’ve listed it in the shop.

“Under A Full Moon” 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. This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Dark silver colored wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This tree is bare of leaves like one would see in Winter and features a large, white pearl round disk “full moon” behind the branches. This piece has a very mystical feeling to me and a stillness to it as well.

Pendant available for purchase HERE in my shop.
