Tree of Life Pendant

Learn how to take wire and stone beads to make this beautiful Tree of Life Pendant.  A fun and fast project - wear your creation home by end of class!

Tree of Life Symbolism
The Tree of Life symbol meaning represents different qualities/virtues like wisdom, strength, protection, beauty, bounty and redemption. It is also considered to be the symbol of 'Creator'. The tree is associated with the creator because it provides protection, supports abundant fruit production and thereby, regeneration. This analogy can also be used to describe the life of humans. We as humans develop 'roots' of our beliefs, 'branch out' by means of wisdom and the 'trunk' (mind & body) keeps them connected.

The Tree of Life meaning as perceived in different faiths, belief systems and cultures, resonates with a simple and strong message of unity. The Tree of Life symbol indicates that all forms of life are connected through a cosmic energy and that we as humans should live in harmony with rest of the living beings.

Adult & Children Bead Parties
Our Buttercup Children Parties will keep the mess out of your home, while still providing a great learning experience in a safe, fun, and friendly environment. A perfect outing for Birthdays, Brownies, Girl Scouts, Sport and Dance teams. We love hosting (big) Girl's Night Out, Red Hatters, and Bridal Parties for any special occasion or for nothing at all.  (It's a social thing, doncha know.)


Open Workshop Studio - No experience necessary!
Where there are no classes or parties scheduled - we are an open workshop environment. ~ Buttercup Beads encourages you to bring in your current project, or start a new one and sit and bead with us in our cozy cottage setting.  If you've never beaded before you just come in, pick out a few beads and "Make and Take" your very own creation - no experience necessary - we'll do the finishing for you!  We play nice too. We'll share our tools, as well as our expertise.  We work closely with Bead Societies and Guilds to host special beading events, bead soirees, and unique workshops. Please come in to discover all of the many other services we have to offer!


 We're cozy.
  We're the best girly store in town! We are a slipper friendly, chocolate eating, coffee drinking bunch. Robes however, are entirely optional but must be worn with large dangly crystal earrings...(We do have our standards doncha know.)  Our prices are completely competitive and our service comes with a smile. Most of all - we're here to help you have fun!
