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. Hand hammered sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Rhodolite tends to be lighter in color than most other kinds of red garnet. Rhodolite comes from the Greek word “rhodon”, meaning rose. Many courageous discoverers and travelers wore garnets for protection, as they were considered popular talismans and protective stones. Garnet is a natural, semi-precious gemstone associated with the planet Mars, the zodiac sign of Aquarius and the birthstone of the month of January.

The Rhodolite Garnet rondelles used in this piece are tiny and beautiful. Each is approximately 2-2.5mm and a lovely raspberry color. In different lighting, the full range of colors shine and you can see a variety of redish purple hues.

Measuring approximately 1.5″ in diameter (not including bail), it’s a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear.

Custom Order – Opal and Garnet Tree of Life in 14K Gold

I love making things that are wholly unique; pieces that are envisioned by my customer and not necessarily something I would have thought of or would have made on my own. I also love when I can make something truly personal and meaningful for my customers.

This piece is sea opal and garnet; the birthstones of her and her husband together in a tree. Opal is the birthstone of October and garnet is the birthstone of January. She wanted it in gold, so I also ordered some 14k gold fill wire. I think the result is just stunning.

This is my “medium” size tree, making it larger than the standard pieces and coming in around 1.75″ in diameter.

Have something in mind that’s custom or unique just for you? Love my trees but want a special family tree, memorial tree or other combination you haven’t seen before? Let me know! I would love to make something beautiful and special for you as well.

Persephone – Garent Briolette Teardrop Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver

AAA-Grade, super luxe, micro faceted garnet teardrop briolettes are wrapped in sterling silver wire to form an amazing, one-of-a-kind Tree of Life pendant.

I truly put love and care into each piece I make. And I love for them to be cherished and enjoyed as much as I enjoy creating them. Every once in a while though, I am lucky enough to have a chance to make something *extra* special. And this is one of those pieces.

I used the most stunning, micro-faceted genuine garnet gemstone briolettes in this piece. They are tiny, tear-drop (or “pear”) shaped gems. Gemstones of this quality and with this detail of faceting are extremely expensive in the smallest of quantities. And this Tree uses *33* such stones!

I’m calling this completely one-of-a-kind piece, “Persephone” after the Greek goddess. She’s most famous for her association with the pomegranate and this piece just reminds me so much of that. This piece will not be recreated due to the expensive materials involved. I was lucky enough to get some garnet once but I don’t see another opportunity like that coming around again! Gemstones of this quality are honestly not normally in my budget. 🙂

I’ve hand-hammered sterling silver wire for the outer hoop and then used non-tarnish sterling silver wire for the roots, trunk and branches. The piece is approximately 1.25″ in height and width not including bail. It’s dainty and feminine but still striking enough to be noticed.

This is a truly unique piece and one I’m proud to offer in my shop. I hope you love it as much as I do.
