Recycled scraps of heavy gauge steel wire have been hand welded together to form the most lovely tree. To create this unique and sturdy base, we welded the tree "trunk" to a cool old machine part and hand-cut metal disc.
This is a larger tree and will be approximately 21" tall and 14" at its widest point. It has an extra curled "vine" around the trunk and wavy branches.
The photo with my hand in it helps give you a size reference. We used a mini-grinder to bring out the highlights on the tree and base, then melted down each of the branch tips to produce a rounded edge so as not to snag your skin or clothing. Finally, we sprayed the tree with a clear coat of lacquer.
Use your imagination! I use mine to hold jewelry, but one of my friends uses hers to hold hand-blown glass balls, and another to hold seasonal ornaments. Or just leave it as the wonderful sculpture it is...
--IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO! SHIPPING COSTS ARE ADDITIONAL AND NOT SHOWN ON THIS LISTING. Domestic costs can range from approx $10-$30, depending on your location and size of tree. So as to not over or under charge you, you may purchase the tree as normal, then I will invoice you for the exact cost of shipping. (Let me know if you would like a quote first.) If you purchase more than one tree at a time, I will gladly combine shipping however possible. The tree may be sent via Parcel Post to keep the cost down, (sometimes a little slower). Please contact me with any special shipping requests or questions.
Our trees are designed to be rustic and "perfectly imperfect". We welcome the occasional scuff or lump. Every tree we make is one of a kind and we welcome custom orders! We have various colors available: bronze, dark metallic grey, metallic teal, black and deep metallic plum. We can make the tree any size you wish. (I have an awesome one that is about 3 feet tall.)
Please look through our sold items in the left hand column of the shop to see our representation of a curly willow and others--available as custom orders.
--P.S. Any of the jewelry or props I used in the photos do not come with the tree, but may still be available for sale. Contact me and I'll be glad to let you know.
Thank you very much for your interest!
