This pendant is made with thick steel wire, 26 guage silver coated copper wire, 11/0 crystal seed beads and 4mm round coral beads.

I got my inspiration for this piece here: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/treeoflife.html and you can find a free tutorial to make one yourself here: http://beadstudio.com/info.php?a=613



I tried making one with glass pearls, but they were just too big and I couldn't get more than one on each branch... hmmm. Advice? C & C?

This is gorgeous!  I think I might have to be inspired by both of you and create my own rendition!  Excellent bead work!
