I made this for Nven for Christmas last year, my first attempt at the popular tree of life design. I ended up being really surprised by how easy it was to make (and by this I mean I had worried all week that I wouldn’t be able to figure out how to do it at all, or that it would turn out horribly). The diameter of the circle is about 1.5″ which ended up being the major hiccup in my design – after soldering the circle I realized that the diameter was larger than my ring mandrel so it was a pain in the butt to make it nice and round. After that though, it was a lot of fun :) All the wire is sterling silver, and the stones are lovely drop shaped garnets. I’m quite pleased with the results and have another circle all ready to go, just trying to decide on what stones to use.
