I've always loved Tree of Life pendants. I received a great one from a swap on craftster many moons ago:
I never tried to make one myself because I figured I couldn't. It looked too complicated. Plus... Well... You know me. Give me a bunch of wire and there's a pretty good chance I'll poke my eye out. (Or someone else's!)
But I had oodles of wire that my parents gave me AGES ago and I thought... What the hell? I've gotta use it sometime. So I busted out my bead boxes (and safety goggles) and got to work! Here's what I came up with:
Wondra's Tree of Life pendant #1:
Hey... That's not bad! The wire was a bit messy because I just did not have the patience to wrap it neatly. Also... I did mention that I'm a spaz, right?
I like it just the way it is, if I'm honest, but I throught I'd try it again and (hopefully) make it a bit neater.
Wondra's Tree of Life pendant #2:
I was really happy with that one! And the best part was when one of the girls at work said "Oh, it's an apple tree!" which is exactly what I was going for.
Now I'm just obsessed with making these!
Wondra's Tree of Life pendant #3:
I was a bit bummed about this one because, when I showed the hubby, he said, "Is it a flower?"
What? No! It doesn't look like a flower... Does it? :(
I'm still not exactly a deft hand at the whole wire thing but I'm totally loving these pendants.
