I was bored the other night so I decided to play around with the typical Tree of Life pendants I make and explore some other options of size, scale, shape and such. These were all random, unplanned, just go-as-you-please type work which can often be fun and lead to pleasant surprises. This is what happens when you sit around on the couch and wire-wrap while watching tv late at night! Cheesy

A badly lit shot of everything all together (helps with scale)



Diamond Tree featuring Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystal Leaves





Bubble Tree - Green Wire with Glass Pearl "leaves" in two colors (white and ivory)





Oval Tree of Life in Amethyst, Copper and Silver





Large Navy and Garnet Tree of Life Pendant




...and with the left over scraps of wire...

Cell phone charm Tree of Life in Navy wire with Rainbow Moonstone
(It's a wee little thing)



As always, comments welcome!  Grin

Those are really fantastic! (of course, that may be the guard girl in me going "ooh Shocked, shiny!", but I still really like it)

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Yeah the bubble tree is so much fun. It's also REALLY 3D though it's hard to see that in the photos.

I always love seeing the new styles you come up with! I love the diamond shape, but that little wee one is totally my fave! You are fantastic at these!
Aw, thanks! The mini ones I plan on turning into cell phone charms. Here's another one I made using seed beads for example:



And thanks!! Grin

Yeah it's just really fun. And it's really 3D - it's not flat at all - but it's hard to see the "puffed" nature of it in a photograph.

The garnet one is super pretty!
Thanks! Garnet is such a rich and lovely stone but it's hard to photograph.

I was so hoping yours would arrive today so it wouldn't spoil it for you! (beadedbyamy received the Wintery diamond shaped rainbow moonstone with Swarovski Tree in OTT 22) But I was eager to show off all my new, funky shapes and it was too nice not to include!! Grin

Thanks! And it's all just patience and practice. My first ones were downright awful. I've just gotten a lot better at working with wire and being comfortable using over the last 9 months or so. Practice really does make perfect with things like this. (And allows for a lot more free-form playing around once you know how to manipulate the wire.) Give it a try and keep trying if you really want to make some too. Wink

I love how you shaped the bubble tree asymetrical. The oval look of the amethyst is pretty and I love the cell phone charms. I want one. Hmm, asymetrical, oval, and miniture with peridot(my birthstone). That just might be lovely.

You do a great job, I have always wanted to try one.

I sent you a pm. Peridot is one of my favorite stones to work with on the Trees. It's just so lovely. I've made others with it in the past like this and this for example. It's a super pretty gem.

Thanks! A good place to start if you'd like to make them is with this tutorial. Of course, I've expanded away into different shapes, sizes and forms since then but that comes with practice. I've been making them the better part of a year now so I'm much more comfortable working with the materials.

OMG! The bubble tree is my favorite!!! Beautiful!
Thanks! Seems to be a real hit. Cheesy
