So, my mother, like me, loves miniature stuff.
I got in the habit years ago of making her these mini beaded trees for gifts, and I try to do a different season each year, and this tree actually started off as a winter tree...but after all the pollen-laden Bradford pears that popped out around here, I thought it fitting it be a spring-themed tree instead.
This one is actually a wee bit bigger than what I normally make in width, somewhere around six inches wide. They're a little time consuming, but fun and easy to make, and I've always had fun experimenting with them, especially the Christmas and Easter ones.
I *still* have so many pearls!! This barely scratched the surface of my excessive supply of them! Cheesy
