The Tree of Life Pendants

I have been having fun creating some gorgeous new pendants.  I call them The Tree of Life.  Actually that was the name given by the Bead Shop in Layton where I learned how to make them.  I have added my own twist on things though by using a solid ring, either in silver or gold, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter rather than making them 4 inches in diameter as we were taught..  I really prefer the smaller pendant.

I make the regular Tree in monochromatic tones (shades of greens etc.)  using 4mm  Swarovski Crystals and top quality  nontarnishing silver, gold, or copper wrapping wire .  As  you will see I have made this in tones of blacks, pinks, greens, purples, blues,  yellows, oranges, and so on.

The  Mother's Tree of Life is a beautiful variation on this.  I take the birthstone colors of the children and wrap the tree in Swarovski crystals with them.  I can also put the parents birthstones in the roots!

I sell these pendants for only $18 each without a chain. 

 If you need  a  chain  I have several to choose from that range in price from $2 to $7 apiece.

Custom Made -- Mother's Tree of Life

This is the Mother's Tree in Gold - using 3 and 4 mm sized Swarovski crystals.

This Mother's Tree of Life has parents with April birthdays (diamond) 
and a child born in May (emerald) June (pearl) and September (Sapphire).  I make these with 3 mm Swarovski crystals and pearls.  

I can custom design one for you or a loved one - just comment the months needed - please designate the monthes in the order of the birth of the children with the oldest child's birth month listed first.
