The Money Tree IS a tree of life! ;)
May we all have wisdom, strength, health and prosperity.
Learn how to create this gorgeous and unique wire tree pendant. This is a twisted, braided, Money Tree bonsai, that I hope gives you endless amounts of fun.
While the braided money tree tradition says there are five strands braided in the trunk, I put five clusters of leaves within the canopy of the tree. Use this pattern as a guide to create many variations of this lovely pendant. Add more to the trunk, different colored chip beads and gemstones and have a great time with it!
This fairly simple project has 31 detailed steps, backed up with 130 clear and close up images, on 18 pages. I think this tutorial can be enjoyed by all skill levels!
