Full Moon Trees Trilogy

My Under A Halloween Moon tree of life pendant has been a HUGE success for me. People really love it. And in the past, I’ve offered other versions of the “full moon” style on a very limited, custom order basis. That, however, has changed.

Now you can also order two additional versions; Under A Full Moon (silver wire with a white moon) AND “Once In A Blue Moon” (silver wire with a blue moon.) This completes my full moon “trilogy” as it were. 😉

Once In A Blue Moon + Under A Full Moon + Under A Halloween Moon

All three are now permanently available as made-to-order pieces in the shop!

Snowman Earrings and Snowman withSnowflake Necklace

Maybe it’s just because we’re having a bit of a cold front here today in Florida or maybe it’s that because of surgery, I kinda had to miss out on Halloween, but either way, I’m starting to get into the holiday mood. So I made up two items in a Winter spirit that I’m going to share.


These cute little snowmen dangle earrings are made from glass pearls and Swarovski crystal. On a .925 sterling silver hook, it’s a perfect accessory for Winter!

I made these adorable little earrings with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” I used stamped, .925 Sterling Silver French hooks to complete it to ensure there are no problems for people with metal allergies or sensitivities.


This necklace features a cute snowmen made from glass pearls and Swarovski crystal accented with a snowflake charm. On a 18″ silver chain, it’s a perfect accessory for Winter!

I made this adorable little snowman pendant with two sizes of glass pearl with an AB (Aurora Borealis) Swarovski crystal spacer in between. It’s topped with some black glass beads to form the “hat.” Then I added a glittery snowflake charm and strung it on a 18″ sterling silver plated chain and finished it with a lobster claw clasp.

Both pieces are available in the Gifts Under $25 category on the PhoenixFire Designs esty shop.

Chrome Diopside and Quartz Dangle Earrings in Sterling Silver

Though I’m still out on unpaid medical leave and will be for some time now (see all the details here), it seems like there are just never enough hours in the day! Not enough time to make, photograph, edit and list items let alone promote them. But here’s one I managed to get listed tonight. I have a few more things which are going to be listed soon but for now, this is the first of them.

Stunning gemstone earrings set all in sterling silver featuring 10mm AA-Grade Crystal Quartz Onion Briolette surrounded by amazing Chrome Diopside Rondelles with White Topaz Accents.

I started these stunning earrings with flawless, AA-grade Crystal Quartz in a 10mm onion shaped briolette. It’s faceted and clear as ice. Then I strung one of my all-time favorite gemstones, Chrome Diopside, on ball-tipped sterling silver headpins and made a cluster on top of the quartz. Above that are two white topaz faceted rondelles to finish out the earrings. They are finished with .925 sterling silver leverbacks.

Chrome Diopside isn’t as well known as other gemstones and though it has an ugly name, it’s one of the most stunning gems you’ll ever find. The color is so rich, so deep and so intense it just doesn’t seem real. But this is an all natural, untreated gemstone and the amazing vibrancy of the green paired with the cool icy perfection of the quartz makes for a really stunning look.

They measure just about 1.45″ in total length from top of leverback to bottom of the quartz. All findings in these are .925 sterling silver. The headpins also have little round balls on the tips giving them more interest and style.

Chrome Diopside is also called “Siberian Emerald” because of it’s rich, amazing green. Many people say Chrome Diopside is what Emerald wishes it could be when it grows up! The name Diopside is derived from the Greek word ‘di’ meaning two, and ‘opsis’, meaning vision. Diopside is believed to be a creative stone, increasing creative visualization and helping to manifest desired goals. Found only in remote Siberia, it can only be mined three months of the year making it a rare and valuable gemstone.

One of a kind and available for purchase 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.

Under A Full Moon

Every time I list my Under A Full Moon Tree of Life pendant, it sells out. I don’t make them very frequently but I finally had a chance to make another one up, so I’ve listed it in the shop.

“Under A Full Moon” 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. This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Dark silver colored wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This tree is bare of leaves like one would see in Winter and features a large, white pearl round disk “full moon” behind the branches. This piece has a very mystical feeling to me and a stillness to it as well.

Four Seasons Tree

All four seasons – Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter – are represented in this beautiful sterling silver pendant. With Peridot, Aventurine, Carnelian and Quartz gemstones as the colors of the year.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree. This Tree features four separate and unique gemstones to represent the Four Seasons.

Spring (Peridot) – 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.

Summer (Dark Green Aventurine) – Aventurine comes in several colors. This particular color is one I just got in and it’s stunning. It has an inner sparkle to it due to the mica content in the quartz matrix. Green Aventurine is the stone of luck and chance. It is said to increase perception and creative insight and is associated with the heart chakra.

Autumn (Red Carnelian) – Red Carnelian is a natural gemstone with an interesting past. Originally it was strictly the property of the noble class and people of high social standing were often buried with this stone. Associated with the Second Chakra (the spleen), it is said to give energy, aide in the prevention of negative vibrations and calm the temper. It’s also known as an energy booster, red carnelian is said to draw energy flows to the wearer.

Winter (Clear Quartz Crystal) – Quartz crystal is a clear variety of quartz that was first found high in the frozen mountains of the Alps. Ancient people believed it was a form of ice crystals that would never melt. It is said to have cooling powers and is a romantic stone.

This Tree is a beautiful representation of the Wheel of the Year and would be a wonderful gift for anyone who is attuned to the seasons such as Wiccans, Witches, Pagans and other Earth-lovers or truly anyone who simply loves the beauty of each season.

The piece measures approximately 1.5″ in height (not including bail) and 1.5″ in width. This is only the second Four Season Tree I’ve offered so it’s making it’s repeat performance on this listing.
