Mystery Tree

About this design:

I have these beautiful goldstone beads from LB so I decided to use them to make an unadorned tree. Added leaves and flowers (just laid them on the branches}. I like the effect and can re-use the bare tree for many more designs. Just for fun.


LB - Goldstone 6mm hearts, and 3 x 14 mm tubes, 11/0 seed beads -brick colored, czech glass flowers-red, translucent green and gold leaves.

    Beady, what a cool idea. Are you going to stitch the leaves and flowers on the tree at some point? You could change them out in line with the change of seasons if you don’t connect them. Please let us know what becomes of the ‘mystery tree’!

    Thanks ladies – I plan to use the tree for a website (mine). This way I can change the leaves and flowers whenever I want. I don’t know if I’ll ever get the website finished. It’ so hard to do – makes my head hurt.

    Hi Robin – I’m trying to get a website going but I’ll probably get an etsy site also. This is all so new to me – I will need lots of luck.
    Anyway – the little bare tree is fun to play with. It bends in so many positions.

    BLE, Your beading break has resulted in a very fine and versatile Mystery Tree. Sometimes you need a break just for some fun.

    Good luck with the etsy shop and website. Your unique designs are sure to be a hit.
