Thought it might be interesting to share some photos of pendants being made as well was their final images. The in-progress shots are just quick shots from my cell phone, so forgive the low quality. But, as you can see, last week, I had a whole batch of trees I was working on. These were made over two days for orders, restocks and swaps.



And here are some of those pieces finished:


My famous "Under A Full Moon" tree of life. (I've made these in a variety or colors over the years.)


This is Dark Green Aventurine

Here's another in-progress shot:


And the finished piece:

This is my "March Tree" named for the fact it's March's birthstone - blue aquamarine.

You can see larger versions of the images here: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/blog/2012/05/trees-in-progress-and-finished/

I often sit and make up several in an evening while watching tv. LOL Cheesy Especially when I have a mix of reasons to make them. Orders of course, swaps, and simple restocks when I run out of something. Last week was a typical, tree-centric week for me but I thought I'd share some pics two nights to help show some of the process. Grin

I'm loving the simple elegance of your full moon pendant. I mean, I like them all, but that one is especially appealing.

Thanks! It's always very well received. I'm really bad at making them regular though which is silly given it's popularity! Wink
