Follow along with step-by-step beading projects and share your designs with beaders around the world—it’s quick & easy!



About this design:

Two brass Trees of Life and a oval copper one. They are all made with stone chips and some seed beads in the first brass tree.

I found the oval was more difficult to work with. There is less room inside and that makes some tight work spaces.


14 gauge copper and brass wire, 24 gauge brass and copper wire, various stone chips, seed beads
