Tree of Life Pendants

A very quick update to share my latest make with you all.  I have an etsy store for which I design jewellery that centres around fertility, loss, pregnancy and family.  It is called Onuava, and is a much needed outlet for my creative passion.
The thing that I love most about my store is the individual stories of courage and shared empathy that my buyers all have.  There is nothing quite as special as knowing that my pieces are providing hope and unity to women all over the globe.

I sell a few pendants that are called The Tree of Life and these are extremely popular.  To date, I have only made pendants with round beads.  After purchasing some gorgeous copper wire, I was inspired to use stone chips as they give a lovely textural appearance that imitates leaves.

After 6 solid hours of work, I have produced these;

The wondrous thing about these pendants is that they feature precious stones and crystals that are said to help increase fertility.  For those that are not big fans of alternative therapies (like crystal healing) these necklaces hold their own on appearance alone.

From top left we have; Garnet, Citrine, Amethyst
From bottom left we have; Trio of Amethyst, Moonstone and Rose Quartz, Lapis Lazuli, Green Malachite

I am pleased as punch with these, and as soon as we have a sunny day I will be photographing them, ready for the shop!


  1. Lovely pendants. I think the texture of the stones is fab. Really gorgeous work. :)


  2. Thanks Danni, great minds obviously do think alike ;)
