This is one of my earlier Tree of Life Pendant kits, it uses 3mm colourful Howlite beads and a cute bird charm.
Something about twisting wires and adding beads to create the classic tree of life is very relaxing. This version uses two size of round agate beads (4mm and 6mm) of different colours.
Each kit includes the beads and snowfake wires to make up six or seven beaded snowflakes.
Each set includes
– 600+ Christmas clear acrylic beads – ranging from size 4mm to 24mm
– Either one packet of wire snowflakes either 11.5cm (4.5 inches) x seven pieces or 15cm x six pieces
You will have left over beads for other projects or to make up additional snowflakes

Over the last few years we have been stock a range of gemstone from Australia that have been cut and polished in China. My favourite would be the chevron amethyst from Karratha WA- Please note to the natural property of the stone variation occur. Chevron amethyst is a mix of deep purple amethyst and white quartz.
Chevron Amethyst combines the strengthening and enhancing qualities of Quartz with the stress relieving qualities of Amethyst.
The dragonfly necklace was strung by my daughter Miss 5 Jessica and is a combination of Swarovski bicones, Thai silver, 10mm round Chevron Amethyst and one strand of the Chevron Amethyst large dagger chips.
I have been inspired by seed bead chains on pinterest (what a great way to bring those beautiful colours of seed beads in your designs). The alloy metal bird connector was fun to use as it soft so you can bend it to the shape of your wrist.
