I made a couple Autumn/Halloween Trees recently and I wanted to show them off. Sadly, I'm still without my pc (working off the laptop) so the photos are only roughly resized.
First up, my favorite:
This one is my official Autumn Tree of Life necklace. It features an array of natural gemstones including red coral, red carnelian, and garnet to make up the variety of autumn leaves. It's brown wire outer circle with copper wire trunk/branches. Though you can't really see it in this shot, it's strung on a dual strand necklace featuring one strand of brown cord and one of brown ribbon. Looks really beautiful worn.
Next up is a sillier and more fun one:
This is my "Halloween" one as it's made with a black wire outer circle and copper ("orange") trunk/branches. The leaves are made of a beautiful stone called red goldstone. It's a man made gemstone dating back to the European Renaissance. Created by infusing copper into glass, it was a result of the search for alchemy. (Transmuting base metal into gold.)
And last isn't autumn. Sorry. But I didn't feel like making a second topic for these so they're going in here too.
These are two more traditional, "Spring" and "Summer" trees complete with green leaves.
The left is Amazonite which is a lovely light green stone and the right is a jade that's been dyed but it has beautiful variation. I made one of the Jade ones as a gift for a friend and liked it so much, I thought I'd make another. For all the Trees I've made, I haven't really done green leaf ones!
I know, ironic, right? Anyway, I thought it was about time.
So I hope you enjoy!
