New wire wrapped heart pendants!

I’ve been on a kick for making something different lately. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I guess hearts and love have been on my mind too. So this translated into making several wire wrapped heart pendants with gemstones in various metal wire colors, stones and styles.

Wire wrapped heart pendant in copper wire with peridot birthstone gemstones, Celtic design bail and antique copper chain with spirals and swirls handmade by PhoenixFire Designs on etsy.
This handmade pendant was hand shaped in solid, tarnish-resistant copper wire and then hammered to bring out texture and also to harden the wire. I then wire wrapped micro faceted peridot rondelles along the outer frame and added swirls and spiral accents plus a matching spring green peridot teardrop accent. It also features a large, decorative Celtic bail and hangs on a 20″ antique copper chain.

This handcrafted wire wrap necklace is also made from hand hammered, textured copper wire shaped into a heart and accented with rich, dark red garnet gemstones and a red siam Swarovski crystal 3D heart dangle. It features a large spiral and hangs on a matching rose gold, bright copper chain. Handmade by Phoenix Fire Designs on etsy.

Silver wire wrap heart pendant wrapped in amethyst and accented with color-changing swarovski crystal on figaro chain by PhoenixFire Designs on etsy
This heart pendant is made from tarnish-resistant silver plated wire which is hand formed into a heart and then accented with an ombre of nearly clear through pale violet purple amethyst rondelles and a color-changing Swarovski crystal twisted cube. It’s been finished with a Figaro chain and handmade by PhoenixFire Designs.

So what do you think? Do you like the new experimental pieces I’ve been making lately? I have a bunch of in-progress pendants as well in other shapes like spirals and swirls and circles which I’m still refining and working on perfecting. I’m never going to stop making my trees of course, but I just thought it might be fun to step outside of my comfort zone and try some new things. Plus, it’s something fresh and makes me stop and think about the creative process a little more. I can make trees by muscle memory these days after making thousands of them! But these shapes require me to focus more and stop and figure out how I need to complete each one.

These three are all One of a Kind pieces and are listed in PhoenixFire Designs shop on etsy – while they last! I will also be adding more styles and options as I go.

Custom Creations

I make a lot of custom items for people. Here are a couple of the most recent ones.

Inspired by a rainbow colored Anthropologie necklace, I made this for a Craftster swap. I hand hammered non-tarnish brass wire into shape, drilled holes in the bar and then used gold-plated wire to wrap the Czech glass beads onto the bar. It’s finished with gold plated chain.

This piece was a custom take on my Rainbow Moonstone Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant with a mini 6mm natural moonstone and a scattering of emerald rondelles in the branches. Created in .925 sterling wire.

Size Chart for PhoenixFire Deisgns Tree of Life Pendants

It can be really hard to judge size of things online from just a picture. Even harder still to decide between two differently sized items. So I made this comparison chart to help easily show the sizes of the commonly available tree of life pendants in my shop.

Extra large, large, medium and miniature size scale of tree of life pendants by PhoenixFire Designs.

Extra large, large, medium and miniature size scale of tree of life pendants by PhoenixFire Designs.

The approximately 2″ Extra large is currently a custom order size. Pictured is a version with a 25mm fire crack agate in mixed metals of brown wire and copper wire. I have more colors of the 25mm fire crackle agate on hand as well if you’re interested in having one custom made.

Large is the “normal” size for my full moon trees. The pendant is approximately 1.5″ and I use 20mm moons in those pieces. Things like my rainbow moonstone, Halloween moon and also Four Seasons Tree of Life all are in the “large” size. Pictured is a gold feldspar moon set in non-tarnish copper wire.

Small at approximately 1.25″ is the “normal” size for the faceted rondelle trees such as the birthstone trees (garnet, emerald, ruby, etc.) as well as the smaller full moon versions. I use a proportionally smaller moon of 10mm to keep the balance of the scale. Pictured is a green agate moon set in gunmetal wire.

Mini is currently available only as earrings. Items like my Four Season Tree of Life Earrings use the mini size. It’s approximately 1″ and makes for a tiny, adorable little tree. I can also make a single tree as a pendant in this size on custom order. (Perhaps a nice gift for a younger girl? A piece of “grown up” jewelry more appropriate to her size?) Pictured is a mix of rose quartz, amethyst and rainbow moonstone chips in silver.

I hope this helps better understand the various sizes and the scale of how they all relate to each other. My pieces tend to fall in the same sizes so this reference should be a helpful guide in comparing and deciding which size works best for you!

As always, every single piece of PhoenixFire Designs jewelry is handmade entirely from scratch so customization and personalization is always possible! If you want to mix it up or change it up, just let me know!

Love’s car has been on the fritz and about two weeks ago, he “parked” it until we could save up for the repairs. In the meantime he’s been taking my car to work, leaving me stuck the apartment with no way to get out and do anything. It’s driving me crazy. We’re about halfway to our goal for the repairs but I can’t take being car-less any longer.

Bird Nests Wrapped into Tree of Life Pendants

New! Tree of Life pendants with a small bird nest nestled in the branches of these handmade, wire wrapped sterling silver tree pendants make a unique Mother’s Tree celebrating family and children.

Tree of Life pendants with a small bird nest nestled in the branches of these handmade, wire wrapped sterling silver tree pendants make a unique Mother’s Tree celebrating family and children. by PhoenixFire Designs

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.

Tree of Life pendants with a small bird nest nestled in the branches of these handmade, wire wrapped sterling silver tree pendants make a unique Mother’s Tree celebrating family and children. By PhoenixFire Designs

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.
