Tree Cuff

About this design:

Playing with the copper my husband found for me.I tried another bracelet and incorporated a tree of life in it.


I think this is a 16 gauge wire, (he got it from old house wiring cord), 20gauge squarecoppere wire, 24 gauge copper wire.The stone I belive are unikite(spelling?)

    Unakite works perfectly here–it looks like the leaves are changing colors for the season! Your wirework is fantastic and your design is genius!!

    What a clever design to make a Tree of Life as a part of a cuff! I’ve looked at all of your Tree of Life pieces and really like them especially the amber colored one. Haven’t made a Tree of Life in years! Guess it is time to do it again. I’m gonna do it! :D
