Bead "ornaments" peek in and out of the trellis lace branches on this tiny traditional-looking Bitty Beady Christmas Tree by HeartStrings. The branch tips are formed with serrated edging, giving a realistic look.

Easily transform them, too, into unique fiber jewelry with the simple addition of a clasp or coiless safety pin.
