Title: For Mom: A Mini-Bradford Pear Tree o' Pearls!
Post by: apriljane on May 10, 2008 09:36:38 PM
So, my mother, like me, loves miniature stuff.
I got in the habit years ago of making her these mini beaded trees for gifts, and I try to do a different season each year, and this tree actually started off as a winter tree...but after all the pollen-laden Bradford pears that popped out around here, I thought it fitting it be a spring-themed tree instead.
This one is actually a wee bit bigger than what I normally make in width, somewhere around six inches wide. They're a little time consuming, but fun and easy to make, and I've always had fun experimenting with them, especially the Christmas and Easter ones.
I *still* have so many pearls!! This barely scratched the surface of my excessive supply of them! :D

What a wonderful and idea, with so many potential variations.

Great work, I'm loving it's bonsai-esque feel too!
