My dad really loved the cherry tree necklace I made and asked me to make one on a larger scale that he could hang on the wall.  I suggested he make it a necklace anyway (hence the Flava Flav subject line hah.)  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  I also made an agate suncatcher for my aunt.  I like it but I think next time I'll use a heavier gauge wire and make the trunk thicker.  As far as experiments go, I think it turned out alright.

Beautiful, I love the sideways look of the trunk on the first one! And the size is appalling, I commend you on your achievement!

These are amazing! Love the beading. They would look beautiful hanging in a window!

I love the bird nest in the second one! So cute, and a twist I haven't seen yet. Also, the angled trunk on the first one is fantastic. Nice work!
