I have some brand new gem trees AND Tree of Life jewelry to show off!
The first one you see pictured here, is a Green Hair Quartz Bonsai Gem Tree. I got my inspiration from the winter blahs. I live in Minnesota, and this week its been about -10 degrees for the HIGH. Yuck! If you're like me, you hate the cold and you're dying to have some green in your life, not white. This gem tree is a mix of darker and lighter green quartz gems on a earth toned and green, Wavellite rock base. It is a really beautiful piece, I'm loving the re hashed Bonsai design too!
The next one I'm quite proud of is a rare Phosphosiderite gem on a Rubellite/Lepidolite/Tourmaline rock base, in Bonsai form. These gems are rare in chip form, and they're hard to find. This Bonsai is really cool, the trunk looks like its growing out of the side of the rock, and the branches splash over the rock. The only way I could mount and balance the piece, was to fit the trunk onto the side of the rock! So it really is one of a kind. :-) Perfect.
I also have a couple of new TINY gem trees, that are perfect for tight spaces, tight budgets, AND Wedding Cake Toppers! They stand about 3.5 inches tall by about 3.5 inches wide. They are mounted onto a small Geode rock slab. I love these TINYs, they have a very full look and their branches are very twisted. They are priced at $15 each. There is also an Ametrine TINY, not pictured here.
I also have some brand new Tree of Life Jewelry made! Pictured here is the Amber set- pendant necklace and earrings. They can be ordered separately, or as a set. I have many sets available now, including Amber, Turquoise, Green Aventurine, Rose Quartz and Rhodochrosite (specially for Valentine's Day!). I added new pendants too- Fluorite, Black Jasper, Labradorite, Howlite, Tiger's Eye, Mookaite, Tree Agate and Sodalite. You can custom order earrings to match the pendant. I will be making more in the coming weeks to be ready for my show, but this is a great start!
And YES, there IS an upcoming show! February 22-23rd I will be at the Har Mar Mall Rock show in Roseville, MN! I really hope you can make it out, because its a great time with lots of cool finds and rock hounds galore!
That's it for this update. I have a few new gem trees to make this afternoon, including a Turquoise-Smoky Quartz and Green Jade, and definitely need more Willow Aura trees, they are popular on Etsy!
Back by popular demand- Willow gem trees! I've improved on them a bit, and I've decided to add "Aura" to their title.
Willows are a lot of fun, they are almost always in motion! They are very reactive to people's energies/auras, hence their new title. The branches are free flowing, and can be arranged to where they feel best to you.
I have plans for a 2nd willow design, something that more resembles the famous willow trees in the deep south. They will be bigger, with more branches, and be even more free flowing! A 3rd design is possible, solely for wedding cake toppers and small spaces. It'll probably be about 3" tall.
The first newly designed willow available is this Amethyst on Amethyst gem tree. It is now available on Etsy, as well as my shop here! It stands about 7.5" tall and can span around 9" wide, depending how the branches are arranged.
