Family Tree Glass custom family necklace

Piece of the Week: Family Pendants!

Families come in every shape, size, and style… and so should family jewelry! That is why we have created this glass pendant design to be so adaptable to every family’s unique story. One kid? Twins? Large family? Step kids? Fur babies? One parent, or two? Grandparents? Angel babies? There are so many options to consider, so that no two hand blown glass family necklaces ever come out the same.

This week only, you can use promo code MYFAMILY to get 25% OFF your new necklace. There are already many color combinations to choose from in stock, or you can opt to design your own! We are open to working with you to create something just as unique as your one-of-a-kind crew. From choosing custom colors, to the option of adding the little details that help to tell your story, we will create an heirloom quality work of art for you. Just check out some of these photos of past creations and consult our color palette, and let us know what you have in mind in the message box when checking out. Each piece is hand blown individually in the flame with your story in mind, then kiln annealed and wrapped in a gift box with an adjustable necklace cord.

Feel free to contact us if you have an idea that you do not see here… I look forward to creating something special for you!

Piece of the Week: Viva la Vulva! (‘)

This week we are featuring our original Vulva pendant design… that means 25% off all of our handblown glass Vulva and Yoni pendants, necklaces, ornaments and sun catchers when you use promo code GODDESS upon checkout! This ancient symbol is a simple yet profound statement honoring the creation and sustenance of all life, and the need for all of the Earth’s children to honor the divine feminine qualities within, and bring them back into balance in our world today.

Below is a link to the story of how this pendant design came to be, and its evolution since I first started making them many years ago. You can also read on about my new variation of this yoni inspired art, and take a peek at a more detailed version of the vulva pendant that I have been working on… my latest attempt to create more positive and uplifting imagery surrounding the Womens’ Empowerment Movement.

Stay tuned for a special glass Vulva pendant auction going live ion Ebay this week, along with more customer images and reviews for this unique jewelry design.

Piece of the Week: Babywearing Pendants!

Each week, I plan to highlight one of our original pendant designs. I’ll give you a little inside info as to the development and creation of each design, share some customer photos and custom variations, and offer up a discount on that particular design.

First up is a long time favorite: The Babywearing Pendant!

This is by far our best selling design of all time. It is on Etsy‘s “Best Seller” list, is the most ordered design on our website, was chosen by Mothering Magazine to be their exclusive jewelry line, and has always been a big crowd pleaser at parenting conferences and craft shows. The design itself has shifted and changed since it’s conception over a decade ago. It offers so much potential for customization in both form and color, and has grown to include siblings, fathers, angel babies, fur babies… the list goes on!

Birth Art Jewelry up for Auction

glass art and jewelry by Family Tree GlassBirth Art and Jewelry by Family Tree Glass ebay bwCheck out what’s on the FTG auction block this week: The first set of 3 handblown glass pendants (pictured above) is inspired by pregnancy, labor and delivery, motherhood, and midwifery. Featuring a Birth Belly pregnant goddess pendant in translucent teal blue, a Crowning Glory birthing necklace charm, and a Placenta Love pendant. All of these pendants are first quality, and are on sale for other reasons: The Birth Belly pendant and the Crowning Glory design are on the auction block simply because the colors are too varied from the photos I have in my listings. The Placenta Love heart pendant is just like the ones pictured except for one little mistake… I made this one backwards! Not sure what I was thinking that day, but we’ll just let my mistake become someone else’s keepsake! Makes great gifts for babyshowers, blessingways, Mother’s Day, midwifes, doulas, nurses, birth partners, and new moms! Perfect for making jewelry, hemp necklaces, and birth bead labor necklaces.

Sizes range from 1″ – 1.5″ long, hole sizes are appx 4mm. Each one was individually flame sculpted using borosilicate (“Pyrex”) glass, the strongest most crack resistant glass available. We then kiln anneal them for extra durability. Each comes with a small artisan info card/tag.

This and a couple other auctions – including a set of 3 Birth Belly pregnancy pendants and a set of 3 Babywearing pendants (shown here) all kick off Monday night (4/1). Each one begins with a low starting bid, and has no reserve! They end this Thursday evening (4/4), around 8pm est. Happy bidding, and good luck!

What’s on the block this week, you ask?

www.familytreeglass.comI always seem to have a few pendants set aside simply because they came out just a bit too small to match my item descriptions. I am a bit of a perfectionist like that… if it’s even .25″ smaller than what is described on our website then I make another, slightly bigger one. But eventually, I end up with a little stockpile of minis! What to do? Why, offer them up for auction, of course! (You knew I was going to say that.)

1This week’s auctions feature a few of these little glass pendants – just slightly smaller than usual, but otherwise in perfect, new condition! Choose between a cute little Babywearing pendant in turquoise and amber, a Footprints heart pendant in different shades of greens, or a Rainbow Babywearing piece – just like our handblown glass Rainbow Babywearing ornaments, but pendant sized! (this is a prototype design… these are not even available on the website yet, because I am still working on squeezing all those colors into such a small space, in a reasonable amount of time!)

As always, I set no reserve, because it’s just more fun that way! But this time, I made the starting bid even lower… just $1!  These auctions will wrap up this Friday morning, 12/7, around 10am est. Happy bidding, and good luck!
