Yes, I AM a junkie for making Tree of Life pendants. It's true. I can't pretend any longer. Cheesy Nah, seriously, I just decided to make a few yesterday with stone I hadn't used before. While I was at it, I also made  a few more Bird Nest Necklaces also. I had off work yesterday for Tropical Storm Fay (that never arrived here because it took a sharp right and went diagonally across Florida instead) so I had plenty of jewelry fun time.

Trees

Tree of Life Pendant Featuring Picture Jasper Gemstone Leaves



Tree of Life Pendant Featuring Pink Jade Gemstone Leaves



"Winter" Tree of Life Pendant Featuring Howlite Gemstone Leaves



Tree of Life Pendant Featuring Blue Lapis Lazuli Gemstone Leaves



Bird Nest Necklaces

Brown Wire Bird Nest Necklace with Genuine Agate Gemstone "Eggs"



Bird Nest Necklace with Beautiful Jasper "Eggs" On Figaro Chain



Copper Wire Bird Nest Pendant with Light Blue Sapphire "Eggs"



So yeah...like I said. Obsessed. Grin As always, thoughts welcome!

Once again amazing!! I wanted to tell you that I tought it would be cool if you did four mini tree of life pendants in each season, for spring it would be a bright green one with red/pink 'blossoms', in the summer it would be a darker green, fall would be orange re and brown and winter would be white (for the snow covering the bare branches.) I thought with the mini pendants it would make a cute bracelet, interchangable necklace, or a multi-pendant necklace. YOu could see it at your store, I think it would sell! Anyway happy crafting!

It might be hard to get smaller but I could certainly try. Make them like charms on a bracelet? Hrm.... *ponders* The Howlite one looks very Winter to me and the Pink Jade makes me think of Cherry Blossoms and Spring. Wink

I'll have to try some more seasonal ones and see how it works out.

Thanks for the compliments!

I am abso-fricking-lutely in love with these. all of them. I was at "my" craft store yesterday and i saw a tree pendant and i thought "I've seen way better on craftster" Smiley

The pink jade tree and the blue egg and copper nest pendants are my favorite. definitely wearable art.

My goodness....those are so beautiful, I love the look of the tree trunks and branches!  The nests are gorgeous too!  My favorite nest is probably the light blue and copper one (I can't resist anything copper!), but I don't think that I could choose a tree....hmmmm....I really like the first one a lot, with the tan/brown Jasper leaves.

I love jewelry based on natural themes like these.  Your color choices are really beautiful.  I especially like the copper and brown wire nests.  It might be cool to do the tree trunks in those colors, too.
