I've been so bowled over by Christina Larsen of CSL Design's work as you can see from the feature I did on her work. She is also a superb teacher. These two amazing tree of life jewelry designs should remove all doubt! Both are for advanced wire or macrame workers. The first one is a truly unique wire woven and chain tree of life pendant tutorial (update : this is no longer available).

She made a wire woven frame with a lovely bail detail.  The tree itself bears 2 mm metal beads with short chains hanging as a fringe behind.  This design reminds me of a weeping willow.

Her micro macrame tree of life video tutorial is also a stunner.  I love how she introduces colored leaves into her design. It takes great patience to work with multiple strands of cord not to mention, being very organized with them!

Even if you are not into macrame, do watch how she forms the frame - this is one of the best instructions for making a simple frame and bail I have seen.  Her tip on trimming the wire end when first forming a wire scroll is also handy.
