Apple Tree in Silver

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.

July Tree – Genuine Precious Ruby Gemstone in Sterling Silver Tree of Life Pendant

Stunning ruby micro-faceted rondelles are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful Tree of Life pendant. Ruby is a precious gemstone and the birthstone of July.

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.

Ruby is one of the rare, precious gemstones (along with Emerald, Diamond and Sapphire.) Ruby is known as the most powerful gem in the universe. To own a ruby is to know contentment and peace. Given as a gift, ruby is the stone of friendship and love. It’s also associated with vitality and royalty. It is the birthstone of July.

The rubies used in this piece are 100% natural gemstone, grade A+ Micro faceted rondelles. I use approximately 10 carets (!!) of the luxe, precious gem in this pendant. It’s just a breathtaking amount of ruby.

Measuring approximately 1.25″ wide by 1.5″ high (not including bail), it’s a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear. You will receive the exact pendant pictured. I bought enough ruby for one pendant so snag it if you love it!

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!
