This gorgeous Spruce Tree of Life has been bundled with a Tranquil Swirl Orb to create a beautiful memorial display. The spruce is permanently attached to a professionally dried and sanded cypress base that has a pine tree burned into the underside, as well as stamped with roman numerals representing the year it was created. A small glass bell votive and electric tea-light have been included with this purchase to illuminate the orb from below. Custom colors for the orb are available by request.
HOW IT’S MADE
The tree portion of this bundle is meticulously hand-twisted by Carol. She uses three tones of green 24-gauge wire to help produce the color tone necessary to capture the beautiful blue hue often seen in spruces throughout the country. The roots and trunk of the spruce have been made with 200 feet of 20-gauge copper wire, and tones of brown to create Carol's signature nest that is intertwined into the branches. Each completed Blue Spruce has approximately 800 feet of wire in the branches alone!
The orb portion of this bundle is created with love by Rachel. The cremains of your loved one are added into the glass at the time of formation. Initially the cremains are laid out in thin lines. Then, clear molten glass is rolled over the cremains, and then again over colored strips of glass. Together, these are melted in the furnace, and then another clear coating of glass is added for an extra layer of protection. Once formed, the paperweights cool for over 24 hours inside of an annealer.
- We ask for approximately 1/2 teaspoon of cremains.
- The tree stands between 12"-14" and 5"-6" in diameter. The base measures 9" by 7" by 2".
Eligible for up to 20% off for larger family purchases.
- As this is a collaboration between two artists, this bundle can take 6-10 weeks to fully complete. The pieces will ship separately, and the orb will ship prior to the tree. The orb is extremely easy to add in yourself once the tree arrives.

- Free shipping covers sending you the kit and Spirit Piece. You're still responsible for paying to send the cremains back.
