Copper Labradorite Tree of Life Pendant

I’ve been working on a new copper and Labradorite Tree of Life pendant the last few days. Finally, last night, I finished it. I actually made it as a test/sample piece for a large copper tree I wanted to make. When I say large tree, I mean 12″ diameter rather than the pendant’s 1 1/2″ diameter. Turning the trees into wall art has been something I’ve been thinking on for awhile now.

So I thought I’d test the stones on a copper pendant first. See how they look together as I’ve not made a tree from them yet.

First, the raw copper…

Then, the Antiqued version…

It’s awfully hard to capture Labradorite in pics. The flashes of color are rather elusive. But the tree has golds, blues, greens and even a few reds. Perhaps I need to try in the sunlight. Dunno.

For a wall tree, I definitely like the antique version better. Well, I actually like it better for pendants too. I’m still loving the whole antiqued thing. I think I may have some stones large enough to make the big trees and I just got a wire shipment in with bigger guages, so perhaps today I’ll try to figure out how to twist one up.

Adventures in jewely. Or… wall art I guess.

W00T!
