I’ve been making small, necklace sized tree of life pendants for over 10 years now and in fact, I’ve become quite well known for them! But I’ve had people inquiring about larger, decor versions of them for a long time; a suncatcher for your sunny window, or to hang as garden art in your backyard.
Well, I’m happy to announce I’ve finally done just that!
It actually took a little bit of trial and error to scale up from 1.5″ to an 8″ or even 10″ size tree. The sheer amount of wire becomes overwhelming! (Keep in mind, something like my best-selling Opalite Moonstone Tree of Life uses nearly 10 FEET of wire – and it’s only 1.5″ in diameter!)
So it was back to the drawing board to invent a new technique to craft a large scale version. Pulling on over a decade of skill and experience making literally thousands of wire wrapped pieces of wearable art, I figured out to make a suncatcher sized pendant in an entirely new technique, resulting in a beautiful handcrafted home accent.
These extra large tree of life sun catchers are absolutely perfect for a sunny window to catch and refract the light, or as a gorgeous accent to your garden. They would be an amazing housewarming gift idea, or a wonderful wedding present. You could even incorporate them into a rustic wedding theme or woodland wedding decor and hang them at the head table. And don’t forget handmade tree of life suncatchers make a wonderful gift for mother’s day as a special and unique gift for mom.
