Okay, I officially jumped on the bandwagon and made a tree of life ornament.  I was inspired by the may craftsters I've seen making the tree of life pendants, but since I'm new to wire wrapping I wanted to do something a little larger (less difficult) Wink.



I used a bangle bracelet, base metal craft wire, and two colors of glass pearls.  I really like how it turned out and I can't wait to make more.

Thanks for looking, and as always comments always appreciated Cheesy.

Great job! Good idea to start large.. practice your technique. The 1" diameter trees of life are nerve-wracking! Smiley

It's gorgeous and like the others, I really it being square! I tried a tree once and it ended up looking like a steel wool pad with gem chips thrown in for good measure. You did a great job!

I can't imagine doing a 1" one!  I had wires sticking out everywhere with this one, I think I'll just stick to the larger ones!!!
