        I first came across a package of twelve tiny bottles containing pieces of gemstone.  The mineral 'Tiger eye' caught my attention most as I thought the pieces resembled bark from a tree trunk.  I then looked online for things to glue them to and eventually found a 'Bonsai driftwood tree.'  Other artists take pieces of driftwood and then assemble them permanently into the shape of a bonsai tree.  I ordered their largest tree with eight branches so that I could use most of the other minerals included in the package as colored leaves.  When the tree was delivered it was very skimpy so I bulked it up and shaped it to about 3 times its original size with glue.  This item can be held and handled.
