I have been contemplating the idea of adding beads to tree bark but have had a bit of a problem with prices and delivery times. Ideally i would love to impregnate the chosen tree with as many beads as i could, creating a large scale instillation piece that i could leave to nature but i think this will take a lot of bead collecting time and money. In the meantime i thought it would be nice to try the idea out with my newly bought crystals that i am using for my second final piece. Although i am unable to leave the crystals there as i need them for my final piece, i came out with some nice photos and a stronger idea for the future. I feel like these photos also amplify the use of crystals in my final piece, linking them more strongly with nature. It is easy to forget that beautiful stones are natural made, but these pictures help me remember their origins.
These are my favourite out of the ones i took, i think i might choose a few out of theese to be displayed alongside my final piece as i think they compliment the pieces.
