Beautiful, genuine Turquoise gemstone - the birthstone of December - set in sterling silver wire creates this stunning, custom Tree of Life pendant.

The Tree of Life is a concept that's been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things - the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane - the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Turquoise is a stone that has been prized for many years. The ancient Egyptians used turquoise in jewelry and the name means "Turkish stone" as it came to Europe by way of Turkey. Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in Sinai. Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures. Turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

Native Americans of the Southwest also are well known for their silver and turquoise jewelry. Tribes such as Navajoes, Hopi and Zuni are most famous for their turquoise use. They started making silver and turquoise pieces started around the 1850's and continue on through present day.

There are many imitation forms or dyed stones out there. This is a natural (stabilized) turquoise gemstone.

Turquoise has natural variation and variety of greens, aquas, and browns. It's part of the beauty of the stone. Each pendant is fully hand crafted and thus one-of-a-kind. No two are ever alike. You will receive the exact pendant pictured.

The pendant is approximately 1.5"H x 1.25"W not including bail and will accommodate any chain of your choice. (Chains available SEPARATELY here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PhoenixFireDesigns?section_id=7776955 )

Perfect for December babies and also anyone who loves the desert colors of the Southwest!

Frequently asked questions about PhoenixFireDesigns

I gladly accept custom orders! If something I have made sold and you're like another, or if there's something you like but want personalized, or if you have an idea for something different please feel free to convo me with your thoughts! I'm happy to work with you to make the perfect, personalized item for your needs.

Payment is due IN FULL when order is placed. This is because I often must purchase supplies specific for your custom piece and sadly, I have had people confirm a custom order, then I order supplies and create it for them, only to decide they don't have the money to pay. As a result of a handful of unscrupulous buyers, I must now request payment in full up front.

Custom orders are FINAL once the item is shipped. Thank you
By its very nature, handmade jewelry is going to be inherently more delicate than something mass-manufactured. It's important to always apply the "last on; first off" rule meaning put your jewelry on last when getting ready and take it off first.

Permanent wire coatings, protective coatings, non-tarnish finishes and gemstones can be damaged by exposure to various chemicals, including things like lotions, hairsprays and perfumes among others.

It's also important to NEVER submerge handmade jewelry in any kind of liquid, nor use any abrasive cloths, brushes or cleaners as it can damage the piece. Do not wear in the shower, tub, pool or other time when the piece may get submerged in water.
I'm happy to send an item directly to a gift recipient. Simply note in your order that you wish it to go to a different gift address. I am also happy to include a note to the recipient as well - just tell me what you'd like in the "notes to seller" section at checkout.

Full gift wrap in a box is available as an add-on to any order via this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/256161290/gift-wrapping-with-sage-green-damask-box
