This beautiful & sparkly one of a kind tree is newly made using only vintage prong set rhinestone jewelry pieces. I have used only beautiful large stone pieces including. 11 aurora borealis crystal pieces(one dangles). The rhinestones & crystals are all clear or iridescent on silver tone jewelry.
Tree measures 11"T x 3 3/4"W and has no missing or chipped stones. Some pieces were signed with: Eisenberg, Weiss, Kramer, Austria and Laguna. Tree is prettier than my pics show & it is wider than my pics make it look.I started with a new metal tree base and have added only vintage prong set jewelry that has been glued on. I used all high end pieces mainly from the 1940s, 50's & 60's. The tree is then topped with two beautiful rhinestone brooches. There is no junk drawer jewelry used. All pieces have prong set stones except for the aurora borealis pieces that are wired and one brooch that has some tiny glued in stones. I have glued on each piece one at a time to ensure a good fit & a constantly changing design.
When done I fill in any empty spots that I can fit a stone into. This takes me over 35 hours to complete. I use craft glue, not hot glue so there are no big globs of glue seen anywhere.
The tree weighed 3oz before jewels and now weighs over 1 1/2. I have added felt tabs under its solid base to protect furniture.
This comes from a smoke free & pet free home. What a beautiful centerpiece to use for Christmas, a wedding, winter or any occasion!
