Fabulous "Jewelry Tree" Picture...

Oh la la, I came across this jeweled Christmas Tree picture at a local antique shop a few weeks ago. The price was pretty high, so I decided to think about it. Well, one week later and here it is on my wall! Go figure~
I really had trouble "capturing" it on the camera. It is soooo beautiful! It is around 2' tall and there are holes drilled in the back for Christmas lights! I had to take them out for it to hang right, but I will try to add them back next holiday season.






Here it is hanging in the shop....just waiting for me to come back~


Oh, I love these antique ornaments! Sometimes I think...I am Christmas Crazy!

I've seen a few of these, but none as gorgeous as yours! It is so elegant and features some really fantastic pins. I can see why you had to have it. Great find!
Don't forget to link to the party.

Your Christmas tree jewelry picture is truly gorgeous! I have a couple of these that I put out at Christmas time and really enjoy them. They are getting harder to find at a decent price. Someday I hope to make one with bits of broken jewelry.

blessings,
Danielle

A friend of mine in California had one of those trees that her elderly neighbor had made and given to her. Yours is super gorgeous!! It would be fun to make one, too! Love your blog and I'm your newest follower!

That is a beautifully designed tree. I made one for myself and couldn't believe how much money, time and glue it took. I am sure your tree is well worth the price you paid, especially because of clever design the artist used.

P.s. It would be sooo nice if you would please turn off word verification. It is so hard now that we have to enter two weirdo long words. Thx!

Gorgeous! I have seen these wall hangings made from vintage jewelry before and have been collecting vintage jewelry form thrift shopping since to try to accumulate enough of them to do something like this. Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing with us at TTF and have a terrific day!

Diane said...

First time commenting so hopefully will do this right....Just had to say how beautiful your jewelry tree is. I would have gone back for it too. Thanks for sharing pictures of your wonderful find!
