New Tree Design

For some time I've been wanting to do a Cancer Awareness tree. My first little tree was done on an artist trading card, so you really can't count it, but this week was the week to get it completed. I have one more that isn't photographed yet that is for Breast Cancer Awareness and as you can guess it is mostly pink.

This one has pink and lavender ribbon with leaf, heart and hope charms. I have this one mounted on a dish but it would be easy to mount it on a rock or in a cup also. This tree is based upon the 2 Leaf Gem Tree style in my book with a couple of variations. There are some crystal sprays and some branches with just loops. The complete instructions will be written up soon and posted as a tutorial for sale along with the kit in my ArtFire Studio.  Here are a few more pictures of other trees in this same style.

Fun trees to make.

Hello, my names Megan (or May for short)and I am also a crafty persom like you. First off, I've always have tried to make a wire tree and now with some of your idea help I can make one without it falling over!! Im 14 and wanted some ideas on what to do over the summer...the Redmond Saturday Market doesn't have any jewelry booth openings so I am forced to choose something else. Any ideas? e-mail me at:
