Size Chart for PhoenixFire Deisgns Tree of Life Pendants

It can be really hard to judge size of things online from just a picture. Even harder still to decide between two differently sized items. So I made this comparison chart to help easily show the sizes of the commonly available tree of life pendants in my shop.

Extra large, large, medium and miniature size scale of tree of life pendants by PhoenixFire Designs.

Extra large, large, medium and miniature size scale of tree of life pendants by PhoenixFire Designs.

The approximately 2″ Extra large is currently a custom order size. Pictured is a version with a 25mm fire crack agate in mixed metals of brown wire and copper wire. I have more colors of the 25mm fire crackle agate on hand as well if you’re interested in having one custom made.

Large is the “normal” size for my full moon trees. The pendant is approximately 1.5″ and I use 20mm moons in those pieces. Things like my rainbow moonstone, Halloween moon and also Four Seasons Tree of Life all are in the “large” size. Pictured is a gold feldspar moon set in non-tarnish copper wire.

Small at approximately 1.25″ is the “normal” size for the faceted rondelle trees such as the birthstone trees (garnet, emerald, ruby, etc.) as well as the smaller full moon versions. I use a proportionally smaller moon of 10mm to keep the balance of the scale. Pictured is a green agate moon set in gunmetal wire.

Mini is currently available only as earrings. Items like my Four Season Tree of Life Earrings use the mini size. It’s approximately 1″ and makes for a tiny, adorable little tree. I can also make a single tree as a pendant in this size on custom order. (Perhaps a nice gift for a younger girl? A piece of “grown up” jewelry more appropriate to her size?) Pictured is a mix of rose quartz, amethyst and rainbow moonstone chips in silver.

I hope this helps better understand the various sizes and the scale of how they all relate to each other. My pieces tend to fall in the same sizes so this reference should be a helpful guide in comparing and deciding which size works best for you!

As always, every single piece of PhoenixFire Designs jewelry is handmade entirely from scratch so customization and personalization is always possible! If you want to mix it up or change it up, just let me know!

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!

Blood Moon Tree of Life Pendant

Two new, limited edition pieces in my ever-expanding Full Moon collection are now live in the shop! Avaiable in either non-tarnish, sterling silver plated wire, or a yellow gold non-tarnish brass wire!

Blood Moon Tree of Life - shown in both Yellow Gold Brass and Sterling Silver Wire

This tree is bare of leaves like one would see in Winter and features a large, red agate gemstone round bead representing a “blood moon” behind the branches. According to folklore, October’s full moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon” or sometimes the “Blood Moon.” It gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. During a lunar eclipse, the moon actually appears to be a deep red in the sky as a result of the sun’s light interacting with the Earth’s atmosphere.

Blood Moon - Tree of Life Pendant in Sterling Silver Wire with Red Agate Gemstone Full Moon Limited Edition

A beautiful, semi-translucent red agate coin bead measuring 18mm is the focal piece of this pendant. The agate is one of the oldest stones in recorded history, having been used in jewelry since Biblical Babylonian times! Said to aid in healing and protection, it’s associated with the Moon and the planet Mars.

Blood Moon - Tree of Life Pendant in Gold Brass Wire with Red Agate Gemstone Full Moon Limited Edition

THIS IS A LIMITED EDITION PIECE. I bought a very small assortment of these specific agate gems and I’ve divided the availability up between silver and gold offerings. There are a total of TWO silver and TWO gold available and that’s it.

Both available in the shop right now – but only while supplies last!

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!

Almost 400!

I’m only 11 sales shy of reaching 400 sales in my etsy shop! I would love to reach this milestone, so I would appreciate help in spreading the word. Perhaps you can share my shop link on facebook, or tweet it or pin a favorite item or two?




More items available in the shop. And, as always, custom orders are gladly accepted as well! Thank you for your support.

Rhodolite Garnet Tree of Life Pendant

Stunning, semi-precious Rhodolite Garnet rondelles in a bright raspberry pink color are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful Tree of Life pendant.

Stunning, semi-precious Rhodolite Garnet rondelles in a bright raspberry pink color are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful 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 sterling silver plated 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.

Stunning, semi-precious Rhodolite Garnet rondelles in a bright raspberry pink color are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful Tree of Life pendant.

Rhodolite tends to be lighter in color than most other kinds of red garnet. Rhodolite comes from the Greek word “rhodon”, meaning rose. Many courageous discoverers and travelers wore garnets for protection, as they were considered popular talismans and protective stones. Garnet is a natural, semi-precious gemstone associated with the planet Mars, the zodiac sign of Aquarius and the birthstone of the month of January.

The Rhodolite Garnet rondelles used in this piece are tiny and beautiful. Each is approximately 2-2.5mm and a lovely raspberry color. In different lighting, the full range of colors shine and you can see a variety of redish purple hues.

Measuring approximately 1.5″ in diameter (not including bail), it’s a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear.

Available for purchase HERE.
