It's been a while since I've used any of the more colourful wire so thought I'd remedy that with this tree. Named Prosperity as the gemstone turquoise was associated with wealth ... hoping the colour will bring a little prosperity for whoever gives this tree a home.
Made with vivid green / teal coloured copper wire and frosted white and plated silver coloured glass seed beads, this tree is fitted in a dome shaped glass bauble with a rainbow leaf design ribbon. The wooden base has been painted with white acrylic paint then given a coat of pearlescent paint (Unicorn Milk by Stuart Semple).
It is not glued in so it can be removed if you wanted; the wire is slightly springy at the roots so it can be pulled in from the edges and lifted out if you so wish, or left in its glass dome house. Would make a lovely addition as a Christmas tree decoration, or simply as a decorative object.
Dome is 9.5 cms / 3.75 inches in height
Size: Height 9.5cms / 3.75 inches X 6.5cms / 2.5 inches
Materials: Glass seed beads, vivid green / teal tarnish resistant coloured copper wire, glass dome shaped bauble with a wooden base, acrylic paint, Unicorn Milk pearlescent 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.
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.
