Phoenix Fire – Gorgeous Fiery Gemstone Cluster Dangle Earrings

Fiery colors of reds, oranges and yellows, these cluster dangle earrings are all genuine gemstone set in sterling silver. Inspired by my shop’s names these remind me of Phoenix Fire.

I started with a faceted lemon quartz teardrop briolette which I wire wrapped with non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire. Above it, a cluster of micro-faceted rondelles in semi-precious garnet and shaded citrine gemstones nestle together. Each rondelle is on a sterling silver, ball-tipped headpin. The earrings are finished with .925 sterling silver French ear hooks.

The earrings measure a little more than 1.25″ in total length from hook to tip. They sparkle and catch the light like crazy! This warm, rich color combination is perfect for summer and is very vibrant.

I loved these stones and this style so much I made a pair for myself personally! Every time I wear them, I get so many compliments. They’re a perfect size where they’re noticeable but not overbearing. You can wear them both with jeans or for a special occasion.

You will receive the exact pair shown and it’s the only one I can make at this time as I used my entire supply of gems on this pair.

Phoenix Fire Cluster Dangle Earrings

I’ve been wanting to make a pair of phoenix/fire color earrings for awhile. And the nice thing about making jewelry is that I also get to make custom pieces just for myself sometimes too. This was my first time making something just like this but I think it came out really lovely and I hope to be able to offer some in this style (but maybe in different color schemes as well) in my shop soon.

For now, look how pretty! Lemon quartz teardrop briolettes and micro-faceted rondelles in garnet and shaded citrine. All set in sterling.







So lovely. And I’m just so pleased with the colors and how they look worn as well. Like I said, this pair I made for myself to learn the technique and figure out the logistics but hopefully soon I can offer some my shop as well.

February Tree Redux

The first of my February Trees featuring genuine faceted rondelle Amethyst gemstones set in non-tarnish silver plated wire sold so I’ve made a second. This is all the amethyst I have currently on hand but this exact pendant is ready to ship.

Amethyst derives it’s name from a Greek word meaning “without drunkenness” because it was believed to protect the wearer from poisons. Amethyst is a semi-precious gemstone and is a very powerful stone being used for insomnia, protection, wisdom and healing. Amethyst is also traditionally associated with royalty and people of great wealth. It is the birthstone of February.

The pendant is available HERE in the shop.

February Tree – Amethyst Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver

Stunning amethyst micro-faceted rondelles are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful Tree of Life pendant. Amethyst is the birthstone of February.

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.

The amethyst in this piece is very luxe – high quality with precision facets and cuts. It’s a pure, rich, warm purple all the way through. Amethyst derives it’s name from a Greek word meaning “without drunkenness” because it was believed to protect the wearer from poisons. Amethyst is a semi-precious gemstone and is a very powerful stone being used for insomnia, protection, wisdom and healing. Amethyst is also traditionally associated with royalty and people of great wealth.

Measuring approximately 1.25″ wide by 1.75″ high (not including bail), it’s a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear.
