I'm rather loving these multi-month birthstone trees. I made this one from Sterling Silver, and duplicated the 6 months on both sides of the tree; one month per branch, filling thee tree with Emeralds, Amethyst, Garnet, Citrine and Aquamarine.
It may still get an antiquing. That might work well with this one, give some texture to the trunk. We'll see what happens.
Adventures in jewelry. W00t!
