(That crazy Tree of Life Pendant girl)

Of course, I'm most known for my tree of life pendants and given that I make so many of them, it's not uncommon I get custom requests. Different wire color, different gemstones, different patterns, etc. It's always fun to see what people come up with and request and it's always enjoyable to make unique, one-of-a-kind pieces too. (Something different for me as well!)

Here's a few of my more recent custom works I made for people.


For this one, my customer requested the Opalite Moonstone Full Moon style to be in silver outer circle
with copper wire branch and also a small scattering of a mix of pink tourmaline and garnet rondelles within the branches.
I really love the color combo of the copper and the pinks and burgundy colors of the gems!



10mm Natural Rainbow Moonstone set in 14k gold fill wire.
I normally offer this in silver but the customer wanted gold.
She also requested I use a moonstone with more green flash to off set the gold wire so I hand selected just the right gem.



This request had many specific details with personal symbolism.
A mix of non-tarnish silver and copper wires blended together, with a natural 6mm moonstone moon,
plus a natural peridot rondelle on the left near the trunk and a single natural tanzinite on the right up in the branches.
I enjoyed the challenge of incorporating all the different elements together in the right order and positioning for this one!



This piece is a custom birthstone piece in 14k gold fill wire and featuring Chrome Diopside for May (Emerald),
Imperial Yellow Topaz for November and Freshwater Pearl for June. I love how rich and luxe this one looks! So rich and expensive in style. Wink



On this one, the customer had specific request of colors to represent birthstones and family members.
Garnet for January; Dark Green Aventurine for Mays traditional Emerald; Peridot for August; Citrine for November and Amethyst for February.
I think these colors all look so lovely together too!

I kept thinking that the pendant I was looking at was my favourite, then as soon as I scrolled to the next one, it was the best one.  In a nutshell, they're all gorgeous.
