About

The way to a magic kingdom..

WireMyTree is my way to bring joy, happiness and magic to everyday life!!

All started more than 10 years ago when I first made a woman-like wire figure for the Arts Class at School of Architecture. Wire wrapping was a "love at first sight".. I started making wire trees since then for my friends, family and, of course, me!! I learned about Etsy in 2009, from a good friend, and I discovered a beautiful world! I opened my shop at that time, but I run it systematically since 2011.

Why trees? The first contact was probably by chance, but soon I discovered their special characteristics (stability, durability but also flexibility) that inspired me. My creations do not copy actual trees but capture their main characteristics with bright, cheerful colours and elements.
Wire tree making is my secret parallel world. I use it for «escaping» from everyday life.
Also, making wire trees is my own way to express my feelings. I make wire trees when I feel happy, to express my joy. I make wire trees when I feel sad, to find happiness and magic.
People use to say that my trees are lucky or magic, as they are cute and full of colour. Their magical abilities have not been proved yet, but surely they are made with love and care. It is up to you to discover it!!

I love to experiment with different materials and scales when I make trees. I use colourful seed beads, gemstone chips but also paper figures. I also make trees that vary from 4cm to 12cm, a whole tree family. Recently, I turned my trees to wearable art - jewellery pieces. And experiments go on.

The last months I also run "Walking around Athens" photo session. The trees leave the Lab and are photographed at favourite spots of my city (Athens, Greece). Some of the photos appear at "Shop updates" and as the main listing photos.

I run my shop myself, but I have the support of my daddy. He is the person behind any technical support needed. He is a mechanical engineer and helps me with wire and tool selection, air clay and silicone model making in our balcony.

If you want to learn even more about WireMyTree and me, you can read my shop interview in Etsy Greek Street Team blog,

That is the story behind WireMyTree. Hope you can also find your magic kingdom here!!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Feel free to convo me for a custom order! I am more than happy to make something just for you!

Dimensions

Please read carefully the dimensions of each item you are interested before you buy it. All of my trees are cute but small. Please note that color may vary a bit from display to display. Since I make every tree to order -unless it is mentioned otherwise- the tree you receive may not be exactly the tree pictured. If you require a picture of your tree before I ship it I will be more than happy to send one.

Packaging and shipping details

All items ship well protected in cardboard boxes inside a bubble-wrap envelope. I do my best to make sure you will receive them safe and undamaged.

All items ship registered via first class priority mail services with tracking number through the Hellenic Post. If you prefer to use a different type of shipping, please convo me before the purchase.

All orders are sent using the address provided in the Etsy order. If otherwise, please let me know during checkout.

Feedback

Feedback is quite important for me, it will help me get better and also show potential customers that I am trustworthy. It's quite a pain when an item is through the mailing system so I would love to know it reached you safely :-)
