Tree Necklace

My 19 year old son had the idea to make a tree piece yesterday.  After I drew the tree he cut it out with a jewelers saw and punched all the little tree leaves by hand and the grass at the bottom.  He then drilled holes in the two pieces.  He gave me the cutout and I decided it was so cute that I wanted to make another piece with it.  I decided to solder it onto a piece of copper and then put a patina on it. I then had him cut out some vintage sterling tubing I took off an old necklace.  I wired wrapped the tubing with sterling for the top of both pieces.  It was really fun collaborating on a project together.  The only problem is I love these so much it will be hard to part with them.  This week is going to be busy as I will be going to Park City on Wed at the Canyons for the market from 12-6, and then the Ogden market opens on Sat from 8-3.  I will be at both places, so you can come and see our the jewelry.
