A Cherry Blossom tree in full bloom was the inspiration for this piece. It's Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystals in pink sets in sterling silver wire.


Rainbow Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. Its a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. The moonstone is said to help one perceive that which is and is an excellent choice for meditation or self awareness. Because of its tie to emotions and the moon, its said to be a womans gemstone. Rainbow Moonstone also features a unique inner fire of color and as it catches the light, it shifts through tones of blues and a natural iridescence.


Hidden among the moonstone are eight tiny genuine Swarovski crystal bicones in a warm pink. This gives the piece a look of a Cherry Blossom tree in bloom. It was this image that inspired this pendant. The cool, icy feel of the moonstone and the warm, rich pink crystal just plays off each other really well and makes for a great contrast of Spring and Winter.

I love the moonstones, perhaps a little pale green highlight would work too? But it is very reminiscent of cherry blossom.

This is so unique. The Moonstone and Swarovski bead combination is soft and almost luminescent against the silver wire. Superb use of materials.

This has to be the one of the prettiest (if not THE prettiest) tree of life pendant I have seen. The moonstone and pink truly evoke images of cherry blossoms. Gorgeous!
