My vision never quite turns out the way I imagined. In the case of this jeweled Christmas Tree, it came out way beyond my expectations. I've noticed people like to "name" their creations. If I were to name this one, I'd call it girlie girl. It's so feminine and frilly and, well, GIRLIE!
On a standard Styrofoam cone, I attached some antique lace which subtly peaks throughout this tree. Every piece of jewelry is vintage. Strands of pink glass beads adorn this tree with hints of turquoise and gold. The clear glass rhinestones, enameled brooches and stones, and various single pearls are a wonderful combination.
And the gorgeous geometrical gold sphere coveting the huge glass crystal on top of the tree completes this beauty. There are hearts, butterflies, roses, pearls, beads, antique and vintage rhinestones, leaf brooches, Swarovski crystals, a cameo locket and even a piece of jade. Some of the rhinestone pieces were once worn by women as early as 1920. The bottom is encrusted with smoothed out pink stones.
Every time you look at this tree you will see something new. The colors compliment each other like nothing I've ever seen before. The front (if you choose it to be) has a small "antique" mirror that I adorned with trim and put Swarovski Crystals and Swarovski pink Heart. The brass pedestal candle holder is included with the tree and goes perfectly with it. It is not attached so you can choose to stand the tree on it's own.
This took me hours of work. Every piece carefully selected by me and either pinned or glued.This will not fall apart, it is perfectly in tact and no glue is evident with the naked eye. This centerpiece can be enjoyed year round and should be. It is unique and One of A Kind OOAK!
The tree itself from top of ornament to bottom measures 10. It is about 4 3/4 wide at bottom and tapers up. On the stand, the tree measures 16!The item "Jeweled Christmas Tree Pink Shabby Chic Vintage Jewelry Hand Made OOAK" is in sale since Tuesday, November 08, 2016.
