I created this miniature wire sculpture bonsai tree using yards and yards of thin copper wire. I mounted it on a piece of quartz rock that i collected years ago in a small town in North Carolina. I then added many, many amethyst gemstone chip beads to the ends of each branch and in a few select places on the base to simulate fallen leaves. The wires are securely attached the the base using similar techniques used in wire wrap jewelry. This miniature tree and the base combined measure just 6 inches tall. Amethyst is a powerful & a protective stone. Associated with the crown Chakra. It is February's birthstone & is also associated with the zodiac signs Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces, Aquarius & Capricorn. It is a calming stone which can aid in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to calm. It can assist in finding balance and peace.
