Passion for Life
Rubies are said to be a stone that brings energy, warding against negativity and bringing a 'passion for life'. Regardless of whether you believe in crystal energy or not, it's a lovely stone to looking at with its deep purple red tones. Almost a full 98 cms strand of ruby gemstone chips were used on this tree (93cms to be precise), which was twysted using antique copper coloured copper wire, with a few strands of warm gold coloured copper wire to give a hint of light through the branches, trunk and roots.
Tree sits approximately 4.75 inches (12cm) in height
Passion for Life
Size: Height 4.75" (12cm) x Width 3.75" (9.5cms)
Materials: Ruby gemstone chips, tarnish resistant antique copper coloured copper wire, warm gold coloured 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.
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.
