Does anyone have any about where I can find
instructions for making wire gem trees?
Hello, Sylgy! the only wire trees i have seen recently were,
basically, twisted wire (2 dozen) about 22ga., with the ends
having stone chips glued to them, and the roots sprawling out on
a cluster. a more ornate tree i saw at Kitchener’s Christkindl
Markt, a beautiful piece, but not entirely wire (it was a 14k
Christmas tree, complete with presents, decorations, and gem
ornaments, displayed in a glass dome measuring in total 8" high).
i make wire trees by braiding or twisting wire together, and
using one end for sprawling roots–with or without a cluster to
hold on to, and the other for twisty twirly branches with beads
hanging from them. does anybody else know where to find
instructions/examples for wire trees? erhard.
