Dogwood trees are symbolic to many cultures and representative of life, stability, passion and determination. This simply divine White Dogwood Tree of Life has been bundled with a 3” Sparkle Swirl Orb to create a beautiful memorial display. This bundle comes with a wooden stand, unless otherwise requested. Pictured is the Sparkle Orb in purple and light green. You may select your color combination below. If you are interested in a color combination that is not listed, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org -- we can likely make that happen for you.
HOW IT’S MADE
The tree portion of this bundle is meticulously hand-twisted by Carol. She uses over 275 feet of 20 and 22 gauge wire per tree. The design of this White Dogwood Tree was finally created after attempting many different patterns and twisting many hours. Each flower is hand twisted using white, black and gold colored wires. Once finished, the tree is placed on a beautiful wood base that has been professionally dried and sanding. Each tree is signed by twisting Carol's initials into the root system.
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 Wire Tree of Life measures about 6” high and 5” wide, with a 1/2" high wooden base if the orb measures 3”. If the 4" orb size is selected, the tree will measure 10" high and 8" wide.
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.
