My Version - Xmas Crystal Trees


About this design:

I like to make these a little different sometimes. I only use 3 sizes or margarita flower crystal, and sometimes I use a copper bead cone/cap for the end, or a topaz squashed spacer & bicone for the top. Even adding a crystal rondelle spacer makes it a little more festive! Do you all make & sell these at your shows?

    I made a pair for myself using the clear AB crystal margaritas. They look like ice-covered pines, and can be worn into January.

    I made some last year for the girls in my department at work. I used birthstone colors for the very top so that each would be unique. The ladies loved them.

    @KH – oh, I like the idea of clear crystal! Might have to try that.
    @Chicky Bear-Tara – I like the birthstone color idea too. That could work for the sisters & SILs.

    This is the first time I did some on GF instead of all SS.

    I’ve made these the last three years for my open house I have the first weekend in Dec. They are great sellers, but I sell more of the crystal ones, because they are more versitle. I use 4 sizes of margarita’s.

    @C Clark – Love the snowmen! I tried those last year, sold all but one pair. Sometimes with the trees I use peridot and erinite crystals, too, but this year I just got emerald. I also get those small ornaments from a hobby store & make earrings from them. They sell pretty well, too.
    Thanks everyone for the encouragement & sharing!
