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.

These pendants are handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire (made in the USA) encircles the pendants, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the trees. These tree are bare of leaves like one would see in Winter, just stark and simple in their beauty.

Nestled in the branches of each is a tiny little bird nest. There are “eggs” in each nest. A bird’s nest has a lot of symbolic meaning including protection of the young and nurturing new generation and life. A nest is a home and a shelter and a Mama bird dedicates herself to the protection of her precious eggs. This process is celebrated in these pieces.

These trees – and more! – are available in my shop.

This style is customizable! If you would like a customized version with different color eggs, different number of eggs, different wire colors, etc., send me a message with your desired changes. I will get back to you shortly with a price quote and estimated turnaround time.

Custom Birthstone Tree of Life Pendant

Because everything I make is made by hand, it allows me to fully customize and personalize pieces. One of my favorite things to make are custom pendants that incorporate birthstones for Mothers and Grandmothers.

This piece features the birthstones of March (semi-precious blue topaz in substitution for aquamarine), July (precious Ruby), and August (semi-precious peridot) all together in non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire.

From the happy customer:

As the recipient of this piece, I can attest to its amazing quality and beauty. One that left even my husband speechless. This is going to be one of the most meaningful and breathtaking presents I am giving this year.

This makes for a treasured, heirloom piece that has deep, personal meaning and brings joy to the wearer. I made a custom birthstone tree for my own Mother and she never fails to smile when someone compliments her on it and she can say it represents her daughters.

If you’d like a piece made especially for you, with birthstones of family members, or in memorial of those who have passed, just contact me. I’d love to make something that makes you smile and reminds you of your loved ones too.

What’s New At PhoenixFire Designs!

I desperately need to drum up some sales. Things have been so slow for over a week now and I’m honestly panicking looking at the dwindling balance in my account. With surgery 12 days away (and counting!) and $600 still to go, PLUS trying to build a little bit of a safety net while I’m in recovery for living expenses, I do not need to be this stressed over finances in addition to the stress and fear over surgery!

So here’s the latest items listed on the shop in case you missed them. Click any image for more information and how to buy.

Custom Birthstone Necklace

Your choice of glass pearls in birthstone colors lined in a row and strung on delicate sterling silver plated wire to form a simple, yet modern family necklace.

Perhaps you love my custom birthstone bird nest pendant but have too large of a family. Or, maybe you want to celebrate an extended friends and/or family. If you need more than 4 birthstones together in one piece, this is the perfect option for you!

You can choose between 5 and 12 pearl colors in any combination you would like. The first example shows five pearls (September, July, May, April and February.) The second example is actually the inspiration for this style. A customer needed nine pearls and asked if I could put them all in a line for her. (The months are November, September and October in that piece.) It was such a great idea, I decided to offer it to everyone!

Available custom made just for you in the shop HERE!
