Overview

Gemstone Wire Tree Sculptures is a guide to help create and design gem trees as another form of the lapidary arts. Gem, mineral and bead enthusiasts as well as those who love craft projects, now have the opportunity to learn this lost art form and how it is used as a creative outlet. All instructions are designed with the beginner in mind and include photos and diagrams to help navigate through the steps.

This is a great hobby for creating inexpensive gifts for family and friends that will delight and amaze them. Learn how the trees can be personalized for that special person by using gemstones, beads and charms.

As a bonus, a chapter has been included on how this hobby can become a positive influence on your personal development and help manage your stress. One of Dana's students once commented that she didn't realize that just the simple act of twisting gems on wire could be so relaxing and take your mind off other worries.
