Inspired by Nature: Trees Challenge

Heather Powers is one of my favorite bead makers.  
If you go over to her blog Humblebeads you can find out more about this weekly challenge 
and maybe even participate.  
She is hosting a retreat, working on a book and has beautiful beads she makes from polymer clay. 
Here is my entry for this week's challenge:
That amazing etched copper tree pendant was created by Christine Brandel.
Thanks for such a beautiful piece Christine! 
You can visit her at "A Hot Piece of Glass"  to see more about her and her wonderful creations. 
I have been saving this pendant for quite awhile just waiting for the right opportunity to put it to use. 
I hand beaded the spiral and since this is a very light weight piece 
I used my favorite style magnetic clasp for a closure.  
The little wooden beads are recycled from a really old necklace I pulled apart.
