I've been really inspired by all of the Tree Of Life wire pendants I've seen around. I have a swap partner that has one Wisted so I thought I would try.

Thanks to GypsyMuse's link to a tutorial, not to mention lovely two-toned bare tree, I was able to have a go. I didn't want to clog up her thread so I figured I'd mosey on over to my own thread.

Try #1 with copper wire and tiny leaf beads I inherited from my grandmother.


Try#2 with copper wire and drop circle beads from grandma plus some seed beads. Very fitting for Fall I think.


Has there been a craft-a-long for these yet?

Thanks!

I can't stop. Smiley

Here is another. Sort of looks like an apple or cherry blossom tree to me for some reason. The pink pearls are from the grandma stash and the green bicones were from a friend.



I have 3 or 4 more of the large rings that I made. I may have to make some more rings soon. Found a thread spool that is perfect for making a bunch at once.

Thanks!

Well, the tiny leaf stash from grandma is gone.  Sad But I have found some online resources so I can buy more.  Smiley

Here is my latest. This is a good way to unwind after a busy day at work.
I'm thinking apple tree for this one.
