'Endurance' bead and wire tree sculpture.
I've long since had a fascination with trees that grow and thrive in some of the most inhospitable places. They are always the most interesting to me because they are shaped by their environment, telling a tale of resilience in the face of adversity.
This steely grey coloured copper wire tree was inspired by such trees, made with a mix of champagne and grey coloured seed beads, and twysted together with supa champagne and smoke coloured copper wire.
Tree sits approximately 6 inches (15cm) in height
Size: Height 6" (15cm) x Width 9" (23cms)
Materials: Glass seed beads, supa champagne and smoke coloured tarnish resistant copper wire
Care instructions: Your tree has some degree of flexibility so you may want to adjust the position of some of the leaves. This is fine to do as long as you don't overly stress the wire, otherwise it will weaken and may snap. The wire I use has been enamel coated to prevent tarnishing. Dust can be removed with a paintbrush or similar.
Lastly, please be aware due to the nature of the material, although I make every attempt to minimise this, the roots may have some sharp edges. Caution is advised if placing on surfaces that are easily scratched. For ornamental use only.
