Are you looking for a unique and thoughtful gift for your mother, wife or grandmother? This hand beaded birthstone family tree wall art is a fantastic gift for any occasion. It's a thoughtful wedding and anniversary gift and makes a unique and special Mother's Day, birthday or Christmas gift for your mom, wife or grandma. It's something that suits all occasions.

This is a completely customized piece of artwork, made especially for your family. This stunning crystal sun catcher is made by wire wrapping up to 100 feet of wire into a beautiful tree of life that is created particularly with your family in mind. Each wire is beaded with genuine crystal gemstones to represent the birth months of your family members. Hundreds of gemstone beads adorn each tree. These family trees look beautiful hung in a window to catch the light, or on a wall in any room in a home.

The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality, making it an excellent choice for family decor. It also represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.

I twist and bead the tree and braid the wire loop used to hang the finished suncatcher with love and care in my studio. It takes several hours of craftmanship to create each of these magical family trees. This elegant piece of art comes exquisitely packaged in a custom handmade box, and includes a list of the gemstones used, the properties of the stones, and a description of the symbolism of the tree of life.

This suncatcher is available in 3 sizes: 3", 5" and 7". Each size can easily accommodate up to 12 birthstones. If you need more than 12 birthstones, please send me a message and I will discuss options with you.This stunning sterling silver wire wrapped family tree of life necklace is a unique and thoughtful gift for your mother, grandmother, wife, sister, or best friend. This genuine gemstone birthstone pendant will become a treasured keepsake piece. It's unique and very personal to the recipient. Each pendant is made by wrapping and twisting up to 15 feet of wire into a tree with an intricate wire woven bail. Over a hundred genuine gemstone chips are hand beaded on to the tree to represent the birth month of each individual in the family.
