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.

What’s New At PhoenixFire Designs!

I desperately need to drum up some sales. Things have been so slow for over a week now and I’m honestly panicking looking at the dwindling balance in my account. With surgery 12 days away (and counting!) and $600 still to go, PLUS trying to build a little bit of a safety net while I’m in recovery for living expenses, I do not need to be this stressed over finances in addition to the stress and fear over surgery!

So here’s the latest items listed on the shop in case you missed them. Click any image for more information and how to buy.

Silver Stepping Stone Chain Mail Pendant Necklace

The flowing “Stepping Stone” pattern chain mail pendant in silver jump rings hangs from a sterling silver small link necklace.

I created this handmade pendant using a mix of silver jump rings. The rings cascade down and around the two center rings much like the flow of a river or waterfall.

It’s strung on a 18″ sterling silver plated small link chain which is finished with a lobster claw clasp. Ready for immediate wear!

This is a labor-intensive chain mail pattern but the results are just stunning!

Pendant available for purchase HERE.

Recent Shop Updates

I’ve added a few things in the past week or so to the shop and thought I’d just do a small post showing off the newer pieces.

All items available in the shop along with many others. And, as always, custom orders gladly accepted!

Custom Birthstone Necklace

Your choice of glass pearls in birthstone colors lined in a row and strung on delicate sterling silver plated wire to form a simple, yet modern family necklace.

Perhaps you love my custom birthstone bird nest pendant but have too large of a family. Or, maybe you want to celebrate an extended friends and/or family. If you need more than 4 birthstones together in one piece, this is the perfect option for you!

You can choose between 5 and 12 pearl colors in any combination you would like. The first example shows five pearls (September, July, May, April and February.) The second example is actually the inspiration for this style. A customer needed nine pearls and asked if I could put them all in a line for her. (The months are November, September and October in that piece.) It was such a great idea, I decided to offer it to everyone!

Available custom made just for you in the shop HERE!

Freshwater Pearl In A Row Necklace

Eight of the most stunning freshwater rice pearls are strung in a row on a delicate sterling silver plated chain to form this simple, modern necklace.

When I saw these beautiful pearls I knew I had to snag them. They are some of the absolute most beautiful pearls I’ve ever been lucky enough to work with. Very high quality and luxe.Though an undyed soft white/ivory color, the pearlescent nature of them gives them hints of blue and pink depending on how the light hits them. Just stunning

The pearls can move and rotate as strung on the silver wire allowing them to naturally shift, making for a dynamic piece when worn. Sometimes, they may all lay flat, others they may alternate. Gives the necklace a lovely, organic movement to it.

Think how amazing this would look for a bride wanting something simple, clean and modern. It would also work for a maid of honor or bridesmaid piece. And, since pearl is the birthstone of June, it would also just be a lovely piece for everyday wear as well.

The pearl length measures approximately 1.25″ long with the total length 16″ The necklace is finished with a lobster claw clasp.

Peridot In a Row Necklace

Seven beautiful, micro-faceted peridot gemstone rondelles are strung in a row on a delicate sterling silver plated chain to form this simple, modern necklace.

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, while possessing a uniquely vivid tone of green has some natural variation in it.

This lovely necklace is simple but elegant. The peridot cluster is approximately 1″ long and the total length of the necklace is 16″. It’s finished with a lobster claw clasp.
