Handmade Halloween Jewelry & Accessories

Whether you call it Halloween, Samhain, All Hallow’s Eve, Harvest or just Autumn, I LOVE this time of year! So it’s no wonder that I tend to make a lot of Halloween inspired jewelry in my PhoenixFire Designs etsy shop!

The most classically Halloween of these items is my spooky Halloween Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant. Handmade and wire wrapped in black wire with an orange harvest moon peeking out from behind the bare branches, this one just screams Halloween!

The single most popular item in my PhoenixFire Designs shop by far, is the #1 best selling and #1 most wished for Opalite Rainbow Moonstone Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant.

Though it is available in four wire colors (including silver, gunmetal, brown and black) the black wire wrapped version is the most popular. What I like about this piece is that it’s wonderfully suitable for Halloween and more gothic styles but it’s also striking and lovely enough to be worn all year long!

Another fun item that is inspired by Halloween but can be enjoyed throughout all seasons is my Glow in the Dark Blue Moon Tree of Life Pendant! This is one of several permenant glow in the dark necklaces I have in my shop and this specific tree of life pendant features a teal blue moon that is a glowing blue moon after exposure to light!

When I think about Halloween, one of my favorite symbols is owls. And I love Owl Jewelry which is why my Owl Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant is a subtle Halloween accessory. Wire wrapped in a mixed metal, two-tone combination of brown and copper, and featuring a large opalite rainbow moonstone full moon, a copper owl sits perched in the branches of the tree. This wise owl can almost be heard to call, “whoo?” on a chilly Autumn or All Hallow’s Eve night! (Also available as a Black wire wrapped opalite full moon owl tree and a Copper and Silver Opalite Moonstone Owl Tree of Life Pendant.)

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.

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!

Once In A Blue Moon (Return)

My Once In A Blue Moon Pendant is available once again. I don’t make these very often (about once in a blue moon – ha!) so it’s best to grab it when you can.

This is a unique take on the popular Tree of Life pendants I’m famous for. There are no “leaves” in this piece. Instead, it celebrates bare branches of a tree against a night sky.
