soorawn, I see what you're saying now. I like that idea, but you're right, you would also need to put something to keep the balance.

EstherR, I would love to have a link to the group, and feel free to link them to here as well.

This is simply fantastic. I love how it looks inside the glass dome.  I wouldn't change a thing.

As a tree fan and a Cherry Blossom fan and a Swarovski fan I can tell you that that is utterly gorgeous!!

I love trees, and this is so beautiful. Thank you for your description of the design process, too. I've made a couple of wire trees in the past, but the construction was from the bottom up and did not work out so well. Your way results in a much more organic look...espeically in the close up. The wires all twist together and seem to mimic the natural knots and whorls on a tree.

Wow!  This is breathtaking!  I think this one is by far the best I've seen.

I think most people that do wire trees work from the trunk up, but I found someone who did it the opposite way and I ran with the idea. I find it a really fascinating process and I love to talk to other people who create things like this. Smiley
