I learned how to make trees when I was 11 and mastered this over the last years. I make them using gemstones, coloured copper wire/ gold + silver galvanised copper wire, wood and stones sourced from Irish beaches.
When making them I focus on the energetic properties of the stones to enhance the creative process. I love making Eternal Bonsai to bring light and happiness into your home.
If you wish to get the perfect Eternal Bonsai tree, just let me know how the perfect Eternal Bonsai looks for you.
Have a look at the energetic properties of the gemstones I use for making the trees in the pictures below.
