I submitted this piece for the WWJ wire wrap competition. I didn't win. The pieces that did were amazing. I still enjoyed making it! Click on the title "Tree of Life" above to see the winners.
I chose to wrap a piece of turquoise that looked like the Earth with the Tree of Life coming off of it. It is sitting in a bountiful garden of amethysts and labradorite as if fruit has just fallen to the ground. A crystal can be seen popping it's head out of the earth for some lucky soul to find. Wrapped in 20 and 24 gauge sterling silver wire with amethyst, turquoise, and labradorite beads. Hope you like.

Finally I am wire wrapping again. My muse has been on vacation so I used google images to inspire me. This was just me getting my pliers dusted off and in use again. My four year old daughter refused to go to bed one evening so I pulled out the wires and got these wrapped up between midnight and 5 AM. The one is an Eni Tutorial I decided to buy at about 3 AM. :)
These are slated for necklaces and the trunk show I have coming up. They will sell from $18 to $45
