Cherry Blossom Tree of Life Pendant in Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystal

Rainbow moonstone is accented with tiny pink Swarovski crystal bicones in this Cherry Blossom inspired Tree of Life Pendant.

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 silver 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.

Rainbow Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. It’s a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. The moonstone is said to help one perceive that which “is” and is an excellent choice for meditation or self awareness. Because of it’s tie to emotions and the moon, it’s said to be a woman’s gemstone. Rainbow Moonstone also features a unique inner fire of color and as it catches the light, it shifts through tones of blues and a natural iridescence.

Hidden among the moonstone are eight tiny genuine Swarovski crystal bicones in a warm pink. This gives the piece a look of a Cherry Blossom tree in bloom. It was this image that inspired this pendant. The cool, icy feel of the moonstone and the warm, rich pink crystal just plays off each other really well and makes for a great contrast of Spring and Winter.

Custom Swarovski Crystal Bracelet

I made this piece as a Mother’s Day gift. Her mom wears a lot of blue and brown and that’s a great color combo together so I ran with it. I used some Swarovski crystal accents, genuine Swarovski crystals in round and bicone and finished it with a Swarovski clasp. It’s pretty enough for a special occasion but can also be worn everyday to work or just out for the day.

As always, if you have an idea for a unique, truly one-of-a-kind piece, just email me! I’m happy to discuss what you have in mind and make something special just for you.
