It's not often that I buy jewelry for myself, I would buy a jewelry gift for someone else, but not necessarily for myself. I was inspired by a blog I had visited and came across something quite unique that I had never seen before. They were hand carved trees made from old silver spoons. Click here for pics and just scroll down the page a bit. They really were amazing, I just loved them but I haven't been able to find anything more on them. It got my mind thinking about possibilities for jewelry that I might one day like to create myself (laugh, laugh). So in my search for more information I was looking around on Etsy the other day and just a general search for silver tree jewelry. There were lots of different possibilities until something caught my eye.
I love the Tim Burton style swirly tree. I'm a big fan of Tim Burton style swirly things. I have two silver candelabra's bought years ago inspired by "The nightmare before Christmas". Aside from that I really fell in love with this pendant. I talked myself out of buying it, but couldn't get it out of my mind. It called to me. So I bought it. It's fun getting treats in the mail.
