I personally love the whimsical feel of the entire piece.  I like that the roots are not wrapped under the edge of the shell.  I think if they were wrapped, it would feel restrained and take away from that warm & fuzzy feeling I'm getting from it currently.

Have you done pieces on any other shell shapes?  If so, I'd love to see them.

It's interesting how different people's views can be! This is my first "tree on shell" piece, but I would like to do another. It's just a matter of when!

BeadedbyAmy, beautiful work.. I love seeing your new work.  May I make a  suggestion? Put a spin on this tree... some colored wire, red aventurine and turn it into a coral tree. If you want more whimsy, lampwork fish swimming through would be too cute Smiley

I LOVE the idea of the lampwork fish "swimming" through it, and I'm definitely planning on experimenting with multiple colored wires in the future. Smiley

Hey Amy,

I like tree this tree as it is. The only change I would make (if I could make such a neat sculptural piece!) would be to maybe curve / curl the roots so that they look like the rest of the tree? The beach always makes me think of shells and pieces of glass worn down to be smooth and gentle. I also think of curled and twisted seaweed swaying in the surf. LOVE your work. Keep it up Smiley

Hmmm... that's a really interesting suggestion and may add some extra whimsy! This one is pretty firmly glued in place, but perhaps I will experiment next time. Smiley Also, welcome to craftster!

I very much like how this tree turned out.  If you make another one, perhaps trying an autumn themed one would be fun?  The different coloured bead-leaves could be very lovely.  Also, if you used smaller beads, the tree would end up looking more like a weeping willow or some such tree and might be an interesting challenge. (Small beads always give me grief, anyhow!)

I actually have made a similar autumn tree in which I used a mix of seed beads. Here's a pic of it in case you're interested: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25608300@N04/3168043777/

Thanks for your feedback and ideas ! Smiley
