Christmas is Nearing

I always have a signature Christmas pendant in my stock for the holidays. And this year is no different. I get inspired by all the wonderful traditions Christmas holds.

Here's the last couple of years' holiday pendants

My first holiday pendant from 2 years ago, was this big red quarts, wire wrapped and adorned with pink tourmaline beads. I chose the pink to go a long with the red, so that it would fit the holiday theme, but also be wearable outside of the season. The inspiration for this, was the beautiful Christmas balls.

Last year I made this more subtle pendant. I used a white cherry quarts, red garnets and a brown tourmaline. This one was inspired by the Danish holiday dish, "Æbleskiver". It's kinda like fritters, it's fried bread with jam and sugar. We eat a lot of it here in Denmark during the holidays.

So this year I wanted to go all out on the Christmas theme, and make something in red and green. So I got this gorgeous moss agate bead pendant, and some lovely red garnets, green tourmalines + apatite and wrapped it all up in this;

The inspiration for this piece was the traditional Danish Christmas tree. Which almost always is dominated by red and green. Unfortunately this pendant will not be up for sale in my etsy store. But it is available on Shelter Flair a long with other of my designs.

I wish you all happy holidays!
