I’ve been on a kick making unique Full Moon Tree of Life pendants lately. (Like my Blood Moon duo.) Here's the latest:


Fire Crackle Agate is made by taking a natural agate and heating it, which causes unique patterns within and enhancing the stone. The blue is a deep, rich, dark royal blue with darker “veins” of color throughout. I bought a small assortment of Fire Cracked Agate with each being a different color. I paired this particular one with the gunmetal wire. It’s like the color of hematite; that dark near-black metallic. I think it's a striking combo.

You can see a larger pic in my blog here: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/blog/2012/07/unique-full-moon-tree-of-life-pendants/

As always, thoughts welcome! Grin

PFD, I've always been a fan of your work, but I've never really gotten into the tree of life pendants. This one, however, is so gorgeous! I love the combo so much.

Stunning!  I love the color of gunmetal wire - and the agate makes for a perfect pairing!  
My husband looked over and said, "that's very nice", which translates into "OMG!!".  He normally says "fine" when he means "good", so I'm just doing the math!  Cheesy

Thanks! I loved the way the colors went together too.

Gorgeous!
Thank you!

This makes me laugh. My guy's the same way. Often he just kinda gives bland, "that's nice" kind of replies. So thanks for the big compliment! Cheesy

This is BEAUTIFUL!!!

You're pendants made me join this site!  =)  They are amazing.....

I've been making jewelry as a hobby for family and friends as gifts, and I would love to try wire. Not that I'd be able to do anything like this! - but I like even the basic stuff. I'm not sure how to start. What size wire/where do I get it from? I've looked and there are so many different sizes, finishes, and places that sell them. I don't want to get crappy wires...or wrong sizes. Any suggestions?

I've been selling some of my jewelry pieces....once I make enough money I'll definitely have to purchase one of these!

Thank you!  <3

Aw, thanks KerrieRou! So sweet of you to say. Wink

Waaaaay back, years and years ago when I started making Trees, I used this tutorial to get me started: http://www.beadstudio.com/info.php?a=613 There are tons of additional ones out there though and different techniques to making them, so check out things like YouTube and such as well.

Keep in mind that any tutorial is going to just be a starting point. You really need to take the idea and learn and apply your own technique. It took me many attempts to get them the way I liked and with the refinement I have now. It's just years of practice. So don't get discouraged if your first attempts aren't great. Mine weren't either. Cheesy

As for wire, I started with cheap craft wire I found at Micheal's and that's good for practice, but a good brand is Artistic Wire. It's good for a wide variety of wire wrapping techniques and comes in a wide variety of colors.
