Mother Nature *SOLD* by RachaelsWireGarden Mother Nature *SOLD* by RachaelsWireGarden
Selling for $85
Here is the link to it on my etsy:

So... I know I just did a four seasons pendant lol, but I just had to use that idea on this one as well. A couple months back, I had a customer who wanted me to make a couple of Mother Nature themed pendants. It was my first time doing anything like that, so I wasn't able to do them very elaborate, and I wanted to expand on the idea.

I was playing around with my wire - twisting it and bending it - and it just randomly came together in a nest shape. I thought, "Oh cool, I'll stick a tree inside of this and it can be like Mother Nature."

Originally, I hadn't planned on putting a woman-shaped tree inside - that was a detail I added afterwards when just a regular tree just wasn't special enough lol.

Her arms/branches are meant to look like wings (like a mother bird inside a nest) and inside her stomach are three tiny seed beads meant to represent eggs. I decorated the branches with the colors of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter - to really bring the "Mother Nature" concept together. I hope everyone likes it!

Oxidized creations bear no protective coating or false coloring of wire. 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.

I just finished my first attempt at one of the Tree of Life pendants with the woman as the tree, but I'm very impressed with this one! You did a gorgeous job, I'm in awe over how you managed to get the the outside edge to look tangly and natural, but not so much so that it takes away from the piece. And the nest is such a perfect symbol to go along with the whole thing. Love!! I'm surprised you haven't sold this yet!

Wow Rachael, this is super beautiful, and I love how you combined the four seasons with mother nature.  It's very fitting! You did a very good job with designing the tree/woman in the middle, you can tell right away it's a person, then you second look and it's like..it's a willow tree...no it's a person haha it's just neat.  I also absolutely love the frame for this one, even though it's made out of wire you chose neat colors, and adding in that bit of green wire gives it that mossy trunk feel.  I think all the concepts you chose to go with marry together very nicely here! Great job!

I have been so lazy with internet and commenting, sorry! ;-;

Thank you very much :hug:

Haha I had to fix her hair SEVERAL times before I got it right... and I'm still not completely satisfied, but the end result turned out okay =] That's the part you were referring to about a weeping willow, right? xD Anyways, that green wire was suggested by my mom - she's pretty creative too, so sometimes she has really good ideas =] It really added a lot to the pendant without going overboard lol. A splash of extra color!

That's okay :heart: People get busy - I've actually been kinda lazy about posting my pendants. I've made so many of them the last couple days and I just haven't felt like posting them yet haha.

I am excited for you to see it TOO.  I'm so proud of myself on Pepper-and usually I am not proud on my art when I'm doing it hahha I just have to detail clothing, fix a hand, and finish your hair and add the finishing touches and DONE.  I am so excited because I think it came out very well given I haven't drawn things like that FOREVER. Or I suppose ever hahaha

AHHH! Haha well I could tell from what you showed me that Pepper looks freaking amazing... so I can only imagine how he'll look when he's finished lol. I already know that I'll definitely be framing it on my wall with protective glass and everything LOL. Gosh, I can't wait >.< I'm going to fix up the first chapter of the story and send it to you if you want? Well I guess if you don't have time to draw you probably don't have a lot of time to read either lol but eh xD
