It's been way too long since I submitted any new projects for you guys.  It's not that I haven't been making new stuff, but I have been super duper busy.  I spent the last 3 months working my full time job as music teacher at a private preschool (and oh how they kept me busy) plus having 1-3 interviews a week trying to get out of that job. I've finally done it though! I will now be a full time nanny! That means more money, better benefits, and more time for me to dedicate to my trees. I'm excited!

Anywho, here's one of my recent trees. It stands 8 inches tall (with the rock) and is made with silver paddle wire (my fingers say ouchie) and well over 100 4mm Crystal AB bicones.  I love the combination of silver and crystal, and I have a strange feeling that this won't be the last time you'll see the two together from me.

Thanks for checking out my work!

This is soooooo pretty! And very well displayed too! That must have taken a long time twisting it all together.

Thanks everyone!  Oh, and I wanted to tell you something funny about these pictures.  Usually I use my light box for pictures, but it's white and that's no good for this one. The background I used is actually the gown I wore when I was nominated for Homecoming Queen in high school. I draped it over a chair, set up some lights, and ta-da! It turned out better than I expected. Tongue
