Judy Larson is a wonderful instructor who teaches for free where she lives. But she has also generously shared many of her tutorials here on my blog over the years. Judy recently sent me this pictorial for a marvelous Tree of Life wire neckpiece. A statement design for sure!

She said in her email, "I was sorting my jewelry notes from the year into piles, trying to get a bit organized, and found this. I find I make a lot of things half way and then go on to other things. Because of that, I would forget a lot about a project if I do not make notes. Because the piece was flat, I photocopied it three times during construction and made notes for future reference. I thought your readers might like to try this one. 

 The next time I make this I might use 16 gauge wire instead of 18 for the base for a heftier look."

The 3 annotated photos (two shown above) are not a full tutorial but they do indicate the wire measurements needed to make the frame.  See my basic Tree of Life pendant tutorial for actually making that part.
