I've had this in my head for a while now and last night finally sat down to do it. The Tree of Life design is done in colour-coated copper wire wrapped around a silver hoop with a few small green pearls wound in. The necklace is czech glass and more of the same small green coloured pearl beads.
It's strung on beadalon wire and finished with a pewter coloured bar/toggle clasp.

It's so pretty! I love that you used colored wire instead of beading it!

Thanks! I felt like using mostly wire made it look a little bit more organic... or something. As organic as wire can look I guess!  Wink
