What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Find a larger stone and glue more trees to it, it's fantastic.

Q&A with Laurabijoux
It looks pretty interesting. I only wish the photographs were close-ups, so I could pick out the details.
It's really not complicated at all. Copper wire (don't ask me how many broken engines my husband has dismantled in order to procure wire for my trees...). A mixture of green seed beads (size 2 mm). Little branches at the top and larger and larger towards the base of the tree. Elementary, my dear Watson...
LOVE the project... but also LOVE the TABLE!! ;D Where in the world did you find that?
I find such pieces of furniture (and trays, chess sets, etc.) in a Morrocan shop in my city (Timisoara, Romania). It's traditional. The decorations contain very small pieces of fine wood, difrerently colored, and ivory.
