I have had this little piece of wood for more than 15 years. It was originally a Christmas tree necklace but not something I would wear. So today I finally decided to do something with it. I painted Santa on it in hopes of disguising the look of the tree. I used Triple Thick varnish and it always makes everything look so soft. I am not pleased with the cording so I will have to get with one of my beading friends to show me how to add the cording and beads correctly. Can you see the form of the tree?
