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.

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
