Handmade wire wrapped sea glass tree ornament with Lake Michigan beach glass.
A tree for your tree!
These Christmas tree ornaments are made with copper wire and genuine beach glass, collected from the southern shores of Lake Michigan. Theese trees DO NOT have tiny seed bead 'ornaments'. If you'd like the trees with the seed beads, they are located here:
Choose the perfect size:
Spruce (1 1/2 inches)
Fir (2 inches)
Pine (2 1/2 inches)
Choose your sea glass color
Each tree is individually made after you order it, so you will not receive the tree in the picture. Instead, you'll receive a tree that was made just for you!
Tree shapes vary based on the size/shape of your sea glass. It's always a bit of a mystery, but your tree will be generally triangular, with a stump like those pictured.
HOW DO I ORDER?
This listing is for one tree ornament made with copper wire. Please select sea glass color from the drop down menu. They are available in 3 different sizes (1 1/2, 2 and 2 1/2 inches). If no options are chosen, you will receive a 1 1/2 inch tree made of copper wire with white Lake Michigan sea glass.
Each ornament is made by hand and will be completely unique. The sizes listed are approximate and your ornament may vary by up to 1/4" of the selected size. The shape of your tree will be similar to those pictured, but may be tall and skinny or short and squat depending on the glass used in your tree.
WHAT COMES WITH MY ORNAMENT?
Your ornament will be attached to a loop of ribbon for hanging. If you prefer to use a traditional hook, the ribbon can be easily cut off. No wire 'S" hook is provided with these ornaments.
This could also be attached to a short length of elastic cord (not included) and used as a rear view mirror charm. Your ornament will ship in a small organza bag or pillow box, perfect for gift giving. No price tags will be attached.

I use only authentic sea glass in all of my art and jewelry. If you are interested in a rarer color, or glass I've collected from France, California or England, please contact me. The price is higher for rarer colors (blue would start at $30, red at $40), and glass from other areas, but if I have any in stock I would be happy to work with you to create something special!
If you have a special stone or piece of glass that you would like incorporated into a heart, please message me.

If your jewelry or ornament darkens, and you don't like the look of patina (I love it!), it can be polished until it sparkles again.
Sometimes tarnish from metal can get onto the beach glass giving it a clouded or dirty look. A gentle scrub of a soft toothbrush with warm water and soap will clean it off.
Dry the piece (air dry or use a hairdryer) before polishing the wire.
Rub the metal surface with medium pressure. Non-scratching polishing & cleansing cloths work until the cloth is completely darkened. Polishing cloths can be found online or at local craft shops. I don't suggest using pastes or other chemicals to clean the metal of your pieces, because the chemicals could get into the tiny pores of sea glass and affect its appearance.
