Mini Tree of Life with Quartz Crystals, Wire Wrapped Necklace Pendant in a Mini Terrain Build
I made this pendant by first wire wrapping a copper tree of life and adding crystals and a bird. When I was done, I created a mini terrain build with static grass, then clear coating it for longevity.
The crystals I dug out of the ground at Crystal Park, Montana. I made a short video of the location we dig our crystals, this can be seen at https://youtu.be/cwvQkG_h1TQ
For years (starting in 1974), I have created scale models and fairy gardens. Then with gaming and fantasy tabletop role-playing games, I began to turn my miniature technical building skills into terrain building. My pendants and bracelets have incorporated my terrain techniques such as flocking, miniature landscapes, and embedding tiny crystals, gemstones, hand painting, and clear coating for longevity and durability.
This comes on a waxed cotton cord with a silver lobster clasp. The cord is about 20" long.
The pendant is approximately 1.26" long x 0.92" wide and 0.36" thick.
Thank you for supporting our small business; we appreciate it.
