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.

Apple Trees!

My apple trees are back in stock! Available in non tarnish silver or brown, these adorable tree of life wire wrapped pendants have peridot leaves and ruby red jade apples. Too cute!

No forbidden fruit here! This adorable Apple Tree Pendant features genuine Peridot Gemstone leaves with faceted ruby red jade round apples set in sterling silver plated wire.

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.

The leaves are made from genuine Peridot gemstone. Peridot is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in the most amazing green color. The birthstone of August, it has been considered sacred and a symbol of purity for thousands of years. It was considered a stone of Springtime and a gift of Mother Nature by the Ancients. It is a stone of lightness and beauty and is said to enhance wellness in the spiritually aware. Peridot does have natural, minor inclusions but this is just part of the character of the stone.

The apples are made from 4mm faceted jade beads. This is known as “candy jade” and is dyed to achieve uniform, deep, rich color. It makes perfect apples and the color really pops with the bright, Spring green of the Peridot.

Apple trees always remind me of Autumn as a child growing up in rural, Western Pennsylvania. My uncle had a farm and an apple orchard. Each year, my Mom would climb the trees and toss apples down to me to gather in laundry baskets (which always did double duty during harvest season!) Nothing was every better than an apple fresh from the tree on a crisp, fall day!

Peas In A Pod

Four green aventurine gemstone “peas” are nestled in a sterling silver plated “pod” making a cute little pendant!

The pendant starts with non-tarnish German sterling silver plated wire which is shaped and hand hammered to make a peapod shape. Then I wire wrap four beautiful green aventurine round gemstones to make the pea themselves. (Using non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire as well.)

Green Aventurine is the stone of luck and chance. It is said to increase perception and creative insight and is a heart chakra stone. They have a lovely little bit of variety and color variation in them making them look very organic.

This would be such a cute piece for a Mom or Grandma. (Especially with Mother’s Day coming up!) It’s also a fun pendant for a gardener or farmer. I could see someone who has a backyard garden just loving something like this!

Pendant is approximately 2″ in height from bail to tip. It’s approximately 1″ at it’s widest point. Note: I can also make a version with more or less peas – email me for details and custom listing!
