I LOVE this one. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. I love it so much I think for once, I'm keeping this one all for myself.  Cheesy I plan on making others like it since it's just so pretty, but this specific one is all mine. Grin

Following up on my first Bubble Tree here, I picked up some new glass pearls in different colors and came up with this one.


Brown wire outer square frame with copper wire roots, trunk and branches. Two colors of glass pearl in three sizes are used as the "leaves." I just LOVE the combination of colors.


It's also beautifully dimensional. It really pops up from it's frame.


For size reference

Ever make something and just be so enamored with it and so excited by how well it came out? That's this piece for me. I've made probably over a hundred Trees in the past year but man, this has to be in my top five favorites of all time. I've already worn it a few times to work because it's just such a striking piece.

Thoughts and feedback welcome!

Thank you!  Grin

(To add something, you hover over the little camera icon next to the photo you want to add and pick "that someone else made" from the options.)
