Beads 'n Wire

The tree, below, was created with polymer clay, beads and wire.  I used only glass beads and a thin, but very strong steel wire.  

First I created the base with polymer clay and worked around the base of the tree.  It was a little tricky with all the wires poking out, but the end result was well worth it.  I baked the clay - yes along with the wire in the ceramic base.  

I added acrylic paint to PVA glue and glued the base to the container.  The beads were added to the wire and the ends of each wire were flattened.  Again a little tricky as this was a steel wire and needed substantial pounding without breaking the end beads.  I then curled the wire ends and positioned the limbs.
