Tree Jewelry Design for Necklace & Brooch

I have finally finished the Tree design – the master copy has been cast from my wax carving.

I had previously posted the initial wax carving and sketch – see Jewelry Designs to the left – and here is the final piece cast in solid silver after the wax carving was finished. I used the hard green carving wax and filled in details with pink relief wax – wax is such a wonderful medium to work with. The finished piece or master copy is used to create a silicone mold to be cast centrifugally in pewter, and the design will be a brooch, a choker, a keyring and a pendant. Exciting!

I love depicting trees in all forms; their sinuous trunks and branches are perfect for translation into Art Nouveau style designs, and trees have powerful symbolism in their soulful beauty.

I decided to put two little birds in the branches of this tree so it would have company….

  1. Hi Liza
    I bought one of your brooches last year in Byron Bay. I have misplaced it and am looking to replace. Can I buy online anywhere?
    Kind Regards, Megan

  2. A friend just sent me the necklace as a gift. It has touched me deeply. Thank you for creating an item to embody such beauty. I googled the name on the reverse and found you easily. Merci beaucoup !
