(That crazy Tree of Life Pendant girl)

Just some assorted items I've made lately.

First up, an "Amethyst Swirl" which was made for a swap. It's a take on what's been dubbed my "Pearl Swirl" piece. (Original here)


It uses a wide variety of amethyst purple glass beads. I loved the color, variation and just...quirky uniqueness of it.


Next up are a simple pair of bird earrings I made. (Also for a swap.) I just thought they were cute.



And last up is a Tree pendant. Which, in and of itself is not odd for me. (I'm kinda infamous for them. I make a lot. Ok, a lot a lot. Wink ) But I got bored one night and decided to play with three times as many strands of wire as I normally use AND make it in a pre-made rectangle frame. I didn't plan it out ahead of time, so it's a little random and uneven, but I still kinda like it. It's huge compared to my normal, circle ones, but I forgot to get a pic for scale.


It's natural peridot gemstone with copper wire.


As always, comments welcome!

Sooooo super cool Smiley I looked at your usual trees and I think I like this one much better! I would have made the tree trunk just the slightest big longer and the roots a tiny bit shorter....besides that I really think its amazingly awsome!!!!

Yeah I agree. I didn't plan out what I was doing with it and I wound up with some long pieces I needed to make a certain length so I could gather it all back into one part.

It's really huge though. Like easily over three inches high. So it's not for the...less bold person. Wink The round ones are a more "typical" pendant size. Still, for making it on a whim at like 12:30am one night it's kinda fun. Cheesy

They're beautiful--all 3--I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite.
I like the tree a lot, I like the birds with the little motif in the circle, and I also like the purple swirl with the different beads.
Wonderful!

 Cheesy Thanks! I'm a jewelry designer by semi-pro nature, so there's always some jewelry in the works! (And often for swaps.)

Thanks guys! Grin

I'm the lucky person who received the first one! And it's gorgeous! PFD also sent me a tree of life pendant, and if I'm not wearing one, I'm wearing the other!!
I'm so pleased you like them both.

beautiful wire wrapping. I have just begun to teach myself, this project has inspired me. thanks.
Thanks! And don't forget to show off what you make here on Craftster. And, in case it frustrates you at first - keep going. Wire wrapping was mostly aggravation the first several times I tried it. Wink
