Some time ago, Rose from Random Creative linked to a great tutorial for making a jewelry tree out of cardboard. I loved the idea, but wanted to use my laser to cut one out of wood. I knew wood would be stronger and last longer in the end.
I finally got a chance to design my tree and get one cut and painted! I'm really happy with how the first draft turned out. There are some changes I need to make like making the slits where they slide together narrower. This one works great, but there is some slop between the pieces I'd like to get rid of. And I put some of the leaves too close together to slide necklaces in between.
I can't wait to bring this to my first show this fall! I painted mine pink to help my wood pendants stand out...and because I love pink :)
Once I get my pattern perfected, I thought these would be fun to add to my shop. They make a great display idea for jewelry, bookmarks, ornaments or anything else that hangs.
