Ornament Advent: Day 13 Beaded Copper Wire Tree

tree2

 

For Day 13 of the ornament challenge, I knew I wanted to focus on copper. I ultimately settled on a wire technique from my jewelry-making days. I used 18 gauge copper wire, and large vintage white glass beads. Jump rings made on a size 8 knitting needle hold everything together. The heavy-gauge wire makes for a large ornament – it’s nearly 4″ tall. It was a fun ornament that went together in a few hours!
