I wanted to try one a little different, this is what I came up with, not perfect by any means but not bad for a first try (I think)  

Opinions are welcome

I think it looks really good. What does the green part actually consist of?

It works really well, and makes a cool alternative to the normal tree pendants. Could you use a smaller white bead so that it would look like the moon through the branches of a tree in winter?

oooh super fun idea! I may have to dig through the bead boxes and see what I could come up with.  initially I considered etching a tree on the bead then doing a wire tree overlay.  I have some cool opalized glass beads too I might have to play with next

Lovely.  A really nice twist on the tree of life.  I really like the green donut you chose for the backdrop.
