Grampa's old tree


About this design:

This piece is really special as it includes a cabochon hand painted by a friend of mine (SV Caligraphy). This piece reminds me of my grandparents farm in Ohio where they had a giant old tree that had died long ago. It stood out in the pasture and was my favorite place to lean up against and read.

Components:

Cabochon from SV Caligraphy Vintaj filigree, chain, findings Czech Glass maple leaf beads and crystals

    Love the cabochon and the way you mounted it–all works together. And what a clever use of the vanilla maple leaves!
