FGS Convention Aug 30 - Sept 1st

I am so excited about being an Exhibitor/Vendor at the FGS 2012 Conference!! I will be in the East Exhibition Hall at the BJCC, Booth #222. I will have a daily drawing for an original 'Barb's Branches' piece, so make sure you come by and register with me! :)
I'm working fast and furiously with less than 72 hours to go! Here's a little preview of what I've been making and what I'm still working on.... come see the finished products Aug. 30th - Sept 1st!

I'm posting a photo of another Tree of Life (or Family Tree) along with some sterling silver spoons to give you an idea of the process I go through designing/creating one of these! Each one is 'Hand drawn & sawn'!  I am also including a photo of my Jeweler's (Coping) Saw that I use.  You can see/purchase my Tree & Branch Jewelry at

Blowin' In The Wind

Have to share my latest Tree pendant... a bit different from the about a Tree of Life... how many times I have felt the mighty wind blow and I could barely hang on... This is my tree! :) I'm very pleased with how it turned shows the weight and pull of the stress...and still remains planted firmly!  I hope you enjoy it! :)
You can find this Tree pendant in my Barb's Branches shop on
