Wire Tree of Life Necklace Pendant Glass Beads - Sterling Silver Pendant - Wire Wrapped Jewelry by Tim Whetsel This wire tree of life necklace pendant was constructed with .925 sterling silver wire. The tree of life contains color shifting glass beads that give appearance of autumn foliage to the tree. The glass beads display colors or red, purple, yellow, and pink. To accentuate the wrapped wire, I applied an antique finish and then polished the high areas to a bright luster. #wirejewelry
