Photos don't really do justice to the gorgeous colours that flash within these tiny Ethiopian opal gemstone chips. The first and last photos give you a hint of the rainbow colours within. The tree has been twysted together with supa champagne coloured copper wire, and is encased in a glass dome with a cork base which has been painted with gold coloured acrylic paint and a pearlescent paint on top (Unicorn Milk by Stuart Semple).
Dome sits approximately 47mm in height (between 1.75 and 2 inches)
Miniature opal gemstone wire tree
Size: Height 47mm x 25mm
Materials: Ethiopian Opal gemstone chips, tarnish resistant supa champagne coloured copper wire, glass dome with a cork base, acrylic paint
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.
Some gemstones can fade if exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time so please be aware of this when choosing a place to display your tree.
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.
