Winter Sun: bead and wire tree sculpture


Have you ever been out walking in winter when the sun has been shining mid afternoon and it takes on this deep orange colour that makes all the trees look like they're almost glowing with a gorgeous amber light? Well that's what this was in spired by. A wonderfully wintry tree, sitting atop a piece of Ulexite, or TV rock, so named because of its unusual optical fibres which reflect the light along their lengths.

Made with frosted white and copper coloured metallic glass seed beads, twysted together with light gold coloured copper wire.

Winter Sun

  • Size: Height 13cms x Width 15cms / 5 and a smidge x 6 inches


    Materials:  Glass seed beads, light gold coloured tarnish resistant copper wire, ulexite, adhesive

    Care instructions: For ornamental use only. Copper wire is soft and can be bent easily - branches can be adjusted but bending back and forth repeatedly can cause the wire to weaken and it may snap.

    Ulexite is a softer gemstone and it is best cleaned with a soft cloth. It is mostly water resistant but will dissolve in hot water so it's probably best to steer clear of running it under a hot tap or keeping it in a sauna.
