Tree Mist - Pattern Art Jewelry

My Tree Mist Pattern was created from a photograph that I took of an Eastern Hemlock tree branch up close.   This tree branch was located at Clingman's Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Unfortunately it was mostly branch because the Eastern Hemlock is under the attack of the non- native hemlock woolly adelgid bug; which is destroying these beautiful trees.  That is why, if you visit Clingman's Dome; or other areas of the Smokies, Blue-Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park; you will find a lot of tall, bald trees.

A healthy Hemlock Tree would look kind of like a giant Christmas Tree.  I thought this pattern kind of captured a Christmasy look, with the green, silver and brown colors.

The Hemlock Tree has been said to symbolize protection and healing.

This Tree Mist Pattern is available as rings, drop earrings, stud earrings, necklaces, charms and bracelets.
