These wire work trees are everywhere! You can make them for any occasion, but they are especially great for Mother's Day! You can use the tree branch colors to represent your children's birthstones like in this My Little Tree necklace design.
You go through all this trouble to snip the aluminum, sand the edges, punch holes in it, wire it to an earring, etc. Hours of work. All to hear "Hey, is that chick wearing an Arizona green tea can on her friggin ears?"
