If you are interested in sunstone as a healing stone, you can find its properties here.
I bought this teardrop-shaped sunstone gemstone from a craft fair a while ago and finally decided on what to do with it recently. I couldn’t figure out how to frame it, so instead I wrapped a tree of life around it. I made a very simple tree with not that many wires and it did not take long at all!
I followed this video tutorial by Lan Anh Handmade as a guideline, it was very useful to get some tips!
However I did mess up on one part of it… (Go easy on me, it was my first attempt!) When I wrapped the tree branches around the frame at the back, I accidentally snapped a wire by bending it too much. It still holds in place since only one wire isn’t connected, but be careful with the finishing! I don’t mind wearing it as is for myself, but the snapped wire catches on my clothes sometimes. Wire can only bend so much and so far, so be wary with the thinner parts!
