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.

My silver wire apple tree with spring green peridot gemstone leaves and ruby red jade apples is back in stock in my shop right now! This popular piece tends to sell out quickly when I list it so it will likely go fast.

Apple Tree

After a long time gone from the shop, I’m please to say my Apple Tree has returned!

No forbidden fruit here! This adorable Apple Tree Pendant features genuine Peridot Gemstone leaves with faceted Ruby round apples set in brown wire.

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!

Pendant available HERE in my shop.

Treasury Feature – Under a Halloween Moon Tree of Life

My Under A Halloween Moon tree of life pendant was featured in a great Autumn-inspired treasury!

Despite the hot summer temperatures, I felt a change today: an early morning coolness, crickets, slightly shorter days. The harvest will soon be with us and with it, frosty mornings and bright colors. Life is good!

Here in Florida, we’re still WELL in the grip of summer, but it’s nice to think about Autumn! Pendant is available in the shop HERE.

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.

Pendant available for purchase (while it lasts!) HERE.

April Tree – White Topaz in Sterling Silver

My sister’s birthday is in April. April 2nd to be exact. And of course, that means her birthstone is diamond. As we all know, diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but they’re not very easy on the wallet! I wanted to make something for her this year and I came across a lovely stone called White Topaz. Now, topaz comes in a variety of colors – most commonly things like blue and yellow – but it also comes pure. The pure version is known as White Topaz. And it’s a brilliant alternative to diamond because of it’s clarity and beauty. In fact, people buy white topaz engagement rings since it offers so much more for the money.

So I made an April Tree for my sister and had enough of the gorgeous little micro-faceted rondelles left over to make another one for the shop! So without further ado, here’s the lovely pendant available:

Measuring approximately 1.5″ x 1.5″ not including the bail, this is a positively perfect size for both everyday and special occasion wear. The bail will accommodate just about any chain. It’s a great gift for an April baby, or of course just anyone who loves the look of diamonds!

Available for purchase HERE.
