These wee little tree of life earrings celebrate the four seasons. I used natural gemstone chips in peridot for Spring, dark green aventurine for Summer, carnelian for Autumn and rainbow moonstone for Winter.


The miniature pendants are just slightly smaller than a US Quarter or a little less than 1 inch/24mm in diameter. It takes a lot of fussy finessing to make them look right! Wink (This is where being obsessed with a theme and making trees for so many years pays off! LOL)


These of course also match the Four Seasons Tree I've made for years too - just a lot smaller! Grin

So pretty. I am amazed that you can achieve the same effect on such a small scale.  They are stunning.

These are lovely and the stones you chose are perfect for the seasons!

I also think they remind me a bit of salsa...one of my favorite summertime foods!

Excellent design...and the earrings are just so small...it must be difficult to wire wrap so neatly in such a tiny field!

Thanks! Making them so small is definitely a challenge but I love the end result so it becomes worth it. Cheesy
