How about some wire wrapping for a change of pace? This is a Tree of Life made from turquoise, peridot, and sterling silver on a fine silver hoop. The hoop design is new and the color palate is my personal favorite blues / greens.
These trees were one of my learning projects during the 2011 One-a-day challenge. I made six during the month and it's fun to look back on how the design progressed. When I'm willing to make them (which isn't all that often) they sell quickly :-) They often go to mother of the bride or groom, new mothers, and Mother's Day gifts.
About the blues & greens and how awesome they are, this is from my very first blog post:
What is your favorite color?
I don't have a single favorite color. It's the mix that really takes my breath away.
Blue with green; sky, trees, ocean.
Individually they are pretty, but together, they are invincible.
I think that's a good metaphor for life.
It wasn't a poem but when you add centering & line feeds, almost anything can be a poem :-)
