Custom Birthstone Tree of Life Pendant

I had a request for a custom tree of life pendant representing the birthstones of April, July and August. We discussed options and chose Rainbow Moonstone as a substitute for April (Diamond), and Red Coral as a substitute for July (Ruby) and used actual Peridot for August. She emailed me about a week before Christmas so I was able to use what I had on hand to get the same color scheme for her and still get it to her on time for the holidays.

Here’s the finished piece:

And here’s the wonderful feedback I received from her:

It’s absolutely perfect! Thanks for the creative custom idea and for the extra quick shipping. I’ll certainly be a returning customer.

I love when I’m able to really made someone’s day – and in this case, make someone’s Christmas too! If you have a custom piece you’d like made, just let me know! I’m flexible and gladly offer suggestions and can help you turn your idea into reality.

Custom Bird Nest Pendant Bracelet

I had a request to make a bird nest pendant with one pink and one blue Swarovski glass pearl; one each to represent a boy and a girl child. In addition, there is a sterling silver butterfly pendant to represent the Grandmother that has passed away. I completed the bracelet with a heart toggle clasp – just a little extra touch to show the love of the piece.

Here’s the finished result:

I do offer Customizable Bird Nest Pendants HERE on my PhoenixFire Designs shop @ etsy. I can also make pink/blue (girl/boy) pendants by request as well as other items such as this bracelet. You have an idea, I’ll make it happen!

Sultan’s Collar Necklace

Here’s a custom piece I just finished last night. It was based on another piece that they really liked. I spent about a month ordering supplies from all over the world and waiting for them to arrive. Then I set about breaking down the pattern and figuring out how it all came together. I did it assembly-line style, counting out the groups of pieces I’d need. Once all the parts were ready, I assembled them all into one, cohesive necklace.

Took about four hours of assembly time total.

It was a challenge but it was fun stretching myself into something completely different. Don’t forget, I gladly accept custom orders so please contact me if you’d like something unique of your own. And check out the items for sale on and PhoenixFire Designs @ Etsy.

Apple Tree – Tree of Life Pendant with Peridot and Ruby Gemstone in Brown Wire

I’ve had a lot of requests for more fruit trees so here is the latest! It’s a fun take on my normal pendants and features Peridot gemstone chips for leaves and faceted Ruby gemstone apples set in brown wire.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Permanently colored brown wire frames and encircles the pendant, and is then used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

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.

The apples are made from 4mm faceted ruby round gemstone beads. Ruby is also the birthstone of July and is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe. To own a ruby is said to have contentment and peace. Given as a gift, the ruby is a symbol of friendship and love. The ruby is also the symbol of vitality and royalty.

The pendant is approximately 1.75″ height/width excluding bail. The large bail will accommodate any chain or cord of your choice. (Not included.) It’s the perfect size; big enough to be noticed, but not so large as to be unwearable. You will receive this exact pendant. I’ve had many requests for more Fruit Trees so this is the first in a new line. Would also be a great gift for a teacher!
