Here is the link to it on my etsy:

My first successful oxidized piece! I'm so excited. I love it. It was hard to get a decent picture, so I'll be taking more later... but for now, I just want to get it up there for everyone to see. Now, for the story of what I had to do to MAKE it this way...

Because of the mix up with that one store, I now have some beautiful raw 18g wire that I can't really use for anything. So, anxious and impatient, I decided to strip the coating off of my other wires to get to the raw copper underneath. It took forever... and I actually even hurt my hand doing it xD But, determined as I was, I continued scraping the coating away and eventually got to the nice coppery color underneath. And then I made this!

It is a very nice-sized pendant - not too large, not too small - measuring about 2 inches tall (including the bail) and a little over 1 1/2 inches across at the widest area. I think this is a size that most people would maybe prefer, so I'd like to start making more this size. I hope to post a picture of my pendant sizes (large, medium, small) soon. This particular piece would be in the "medium" category.

Made with peridot stones.

This piece has been oxidized and bears no protective coating or false coloring. Just like a real tree grows and goes through different stages of life, this pendant will continue to tarnish and naturally change through the years.

The Tree of Life symbolizes spiritual growth and wisdom, strength, protection, and connectedness. It is a healthy model that inspires the spirit and encourages hope in all hearts.

These are delicate, wire wrapped pendants that should be handled with care. Some of the stones, glass, or shells used to create the tree can break if handled roughly.

Lovely! Oxidised copper is such a delight and it gives this tree a really weathered feeling - how appropriate! :)
