This was made for the Make A Friend Swap, but I wanted to give it a separate topic because I am really proud of how it came out.  It is french-beaded and stands roughly 18 inches including the box/stand.



A little closer to show the bead work and 'presents' under the tree



The 'ornaments' are charms / pendants normally used in jewelry, and the beads are size 11 seed beads

I bought all the supplies to make one of those years ago. Unfortunately I've had to move numerous times and I don't have any idea what happened to it all. Well done. Hope your new friend appreciates all that work.

This is beautiful! Nice work! Next time, you can make more branches and put them closer together to make it look more realistic. Smiley
