When I initially opened the pack of aquamarine crystal beads, I thought “Wow, that’s bright!” But determined to make it work I paired the 300 glass beads with a nice shiny silver wire and it turned out well. I tried to go for a natural look with a heavy lower branch and then a nice distribution throughout the rest of the tree. The trunk has a few twists and turns and the roots flare out nicely on the American White Oak base.
The tree is 150mm tall and 100mm wide.
These crystals love light! See the below video of how they react to sunlight.
