What are you most proud of? I'm quite proud of the fact that someone recently told me at a craft show that they had seen several trees at a previous show but mine were far better and far more interesting. That made me smile.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with cheap wire! Embrace your mistakes and learn from them. Do your research, too. There are many tutorials online to make the trees. Take bits and pieces from each and make the design your own!

Do you use toggle-clasp for the ends? You have inspired me very much, and I have used satin cords with toggle-clasp at end. But my ends to not look good. Please advise.

Tree of Life Designs have become my favorite Wireworking and silver personal items and now growing obsession to learn the art myself!!!

Didn't see the question about the toggle til just now. There are cord ends that you can use with the satin cords but if you don't like them, you can always make a loop and wrap part of the loop with wire, creating the "loop" end of a hook and loop. Then run the other end through a jumpring and attach a hook or create your own wire hook and wrap the ribbon around the wire (just like you did on the loop side).
