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.

Swarovski Crystal Baroque Pendant Dangle Necklace

Stunning Swarovski crystal baroque pendant is the focal point of this dangle necklace. Featuring clusters of AB crystal on Figaro sterling silver chain.

Swarovski is world-renowned for it’s stunning crystal. Made in Austria, it’s the best crystal in the world. I use it exclusively in this stunning piece.

I started this pendant with a 22mmx15mm Baroque Pendant in AB finish. Then I made clusters of AB xillion 4mm bicones for a total of 4″ of dangle. The clusters graduate in size from 5 at the bottom, to four, three and then two. The dangle is then attached to a 16″ Figaro chain plated in sterling silver. It’s finished with a toggle clasp accented with additional AB Swarovski crystals.

The AB Finish (“Aurora Borealis”) is amazing and gives the crystal an inner fire like no other. As the light hits the crystal you get an explosion of color across the whole rainbow spectrum. Fiery orange, blues, greens, yellows – as the light plays across the crystal, it changes with each motion and just amazing when worn.

I made this necklace with a bride’s big moment in mind. Think how amazing the AB Swarovski crystal will look around her neck as she walks down the isle. Every camera flash will make the crystal come to life.

This pendant would also be perfect for a special event or formal occasion where you want to really shine. Though simple in style, the elegance and amazing quality of the crystal make it something special.
