Here is the one made from my Grandma Gloria’s jewelry:
And this one was made from my Grandma Irene’s jewelry:
While in CA this last trip I was looking through my Moms jewelry box, Its something I like to do every time I go home. It makes me feel close to her even though she is no longer here. As I was looking at all of the cool pieces I decided I want to make a jewel tree from all of her jewelry too.
I am so excited and so nervous at the same time! I have other special pieces from my Grandma Irene that I am going to add into it and also quite few things from my Great Grandmother Lulu that I want to put into her tree too. I found a frame in her garage and today I bought the velvet and the rhinestone chains for the border. I also sorted through all of jewelry and got it all ready. Now all I have left to do is buy the thin plywood that it gets mounted on and put it all together.
Stay tuned for a full tutorial on how to create one and to see how mine turns out!
Wish me luck!
