Placenta Anyone?

As mentioned in my previous post, my business Home Baby Crafts is donating a special tree of life to the silent auction for the BIRTH! play in Syracuse. Well I finished it up today and figured I would give you all a tiny sneak peak into my studio. My first tree done completely in Solid Sterling Silver...drum roll.... The Placenta.
I know, I know, I usually don't like to reproduce similar pieces BUT this is a play and get together focusing completely around birth...how could I not make a placenta? After making my Handmade hoop I went on to twisting and beading my tree with gorgeous Swavorski crystals... So pretty!
The finished product was hung on a dainty 18" sterling silver chain with a 925 marked clasp. Retails at about $70. ^_^  Can you tell I'm excited? I wonder who the lucky auction winner will be? 

"The placenta is one of the most meaningful and beautiful trees of life ever created. It branches out connecting mother and child, cell to cell, vessel to vessel, nourishing the life that is growing in the womb. Respected and held sacred by many cultures throughout the world as a connector of spirits. This tree represents that connection."
