I would like to learn too.  Is there a tutorial that anyone knows of?  
I'm not in this swap.  However I've admired those beaded wire trees myself.  I had come across this tute a while back but haven't built up the courage to try it. Check out the tutorial.

This is an interesting tutorial that is somewhat similar to the techniques I use for my trees. However, with this tutorial, you have to cover the trunk with floral tape and embroidery floss, which I think is unnatural looking (the branches and trunk of a real tree are the exact same colors and textures). Also, this tutorial does not allow you to create fully exposed root structures like you'll find in my trees. Kimberly's trees are gorgeous, but they are very different from my own. On the other hand, it seems that most people who create wire trees use different techniques, yet they're really all beautiful when well done. I guess it just depends on what you like.

Yes, I really like how your root system is exposed, as it looks really nice.  Smiley  I am grateful though because I had no idea how to even start one of these trees and I adore them so much.  Smiley  This will at least give me a starting ground that I can maybe learn how to finish in my own style.  Smiley

It's definitely worth trying out! You may also want to check out http://www.salvillano.com/ . His trees aren't really beaded (some of them are) but they're spectacular and he has a book you can buy.

Great OTTs everyone! My favorites so far have been the seahorse choker and the tiny canvas painting.

Wow...I love everything that everyones been getting - I need to go back and wist all my favourites.

I got my lovely little OTT yesterday - the sweetest, gourgestest, loveliest cupcake necklace with an eeny weeny chocolate beaded cupcake on. I absolutely adore it! Unfortunately I haven't got any pictures as my camera doesn't work so I'm really hoping that loobie has some photos of it to show you all - I forgot to remind her. I sent mine to her yesterday so I hope she gets it sometime tomorrow.

I received my awesome OTT from TracyinNH yesterday. I'll post pictures when I get home from work, since my camera batteries were dead last night.
