About this design:

I'm finally venturing into Vintaj. I've seen the branch used as a focal and I thought it was a good place for me to start. This one took lots of time to create - and recreate - but it was fun learning.

Inspiration: Laud's beautiful "Stone Garden" necklace!


LB: Vintaj branch, hook, earwires, jumprings, and 3mm beads. Bronzite. Czech glass rondelles. stash: sky blue bellflowers. green picasso leaves. olive mist hex crystals. filigree ring.

    Love it, love it, love it! Your little flowers dangling off the branch are cute. The brown beads on the other half seem like a continuation of the tree. Awesome Julie!
    I am in love with the whole vintaj look. I want every single thing they make….several times over.

    I love the color combination. It is very earthy – right up my alley. :)
    The bell flowers add the finishing touch for me.

    Of course, you know I LOVE these pieces! The colors and composition are wonderful. I just bought some of the same blue bellflowers (great minds), so now you’re inspiring me to use them. *smiles and bows*
