I'm always trying to keep my pieces fresh and new. And so I made this one recently as an experiment to try out a little something different.



Set in gunmetal wire, I have a black lip shell crescent moon with a scattering of hematite stars against the bare branches of the tree.


Measures approximately 1.5" in diameter or about 36mm. As always, thoughts welcome!

I love the moon and stars.
Thanks! It's such an iconic pairing, it just made sense to try it in tree form! Cheesy

This is really cool I love the way the moon is kind of set in-between the wires
Thank you! Yeah, I like my moons to be kinda partially obscured so it's like you're seeing it through the branches of the tree.

Beautiful again! I really love your  creations, and I truely cherish the bubble tree you made me. I get compliments all of the time Smiley
Thanks so much! And that's awesome to hear you love your bubble tree! That always is so cool to hear pieces are still being worn and enjoyed. Grin

I've been making trees for years, so on average, it can take anywhere from 20-60 minutes to make one. Just depends on the size, and the number of branches and such. I'm pretty quick at it these days from years and years of practice! Grin

Don't believe I missed commenting on this one.  A very nice design, and a nice twist on your other trees.  I am amazed how you keep coming up with new twists on the theme.
