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



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.





I think it came out really fun and the first thing I thought of was that it'd be fun to give an apple tree to a teacher. Definitely a one-up on a regular apple, that's for sure! Cheesy

Anyway, as always, thoughts welcome!

Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them. When's it my turn for a happy ending?

Thanks! Yeah I had someone tell me something similar; they liked it because it was birthstones. Cheesy I've actually just made another like it recently in fact since it's been so well received.

I have been thinking about attempting to make a Tree of Life Pendant. Just to see if I can. Then, I will get some peridot chips and make one in memory of my mom for myself.  Smiley I love the ones you make!!

Oh wow, it's so beautiful.

My fiancť bought me a ruby engagement ring because red is my favourite colour and it's my birthstone. I adore my ring anyway but knowing that it is symbolic of love and friendship just makes it even better Cheesy

I love how vibrant the colours are. What type of wire do you use?

Thanks!

It's permanently colored copper wire. I use a few different brands just to get the colors that I want. Wink

This is very nice looking, the lines are clean. It must take a lot of practice to have it turn out so clean looking. Mine have a long way to starting looking like this. Nice job!
