Fannie Burr is adept at all sorts of handicrafts. She makes hooked rugs from strips of wool, and her quilts of scrap material include both patchwork types and those made in a precise pattern; she knits and embroiders and enjoys all sorts of needlework. She works with tin, fashioning from cans intricate flowers which are mounted as bouquets on wood to form brilliant plaques. In addition to the pair ornamenting her own wall, she has made ten, others, so far, for her grandchildren. Each requires a month's work. Strikingly beautiful is her Jewelry Tree. "It's more than a decoration," she explains. "It's a sort of Friendship Tree, and it's loaded with memories." Her work of art stands 32 inches tall, including the lazy-susan upon which it rests, and the diameter at the base is 15 inches. A bracelet circles the top, with a brooch at the very tip. A long necklace is draped around the bottom of the tree, Officers Elected To be installed on November 4 are new Yacht Club officers elected on October 7.

LUNCH DINNER Jewelry for one more gem on Mrs. Burr's tinsel-fashion, and just above several necklaces, all different, are arranged in the same manner. Covering the black velvet pyramid are all sorts of jewels, many donated by friends and relatives and most of them bringing to mind a story. An antique amethyst lavaliere calls forth a tender smile. "My husband once gave it to a girl," Mrs. Burr reminisces. "It was someone he knew before he met me. When they went their separate ways, she returned the jewel, which he then presented to me, but I never would wear it. However, it found a home on my Jewelry Tree, where we both enjoy looking at it." To make a Jewelry Tree, purchase a cone of plastic foam or make one, in any size desired, from close-meshed chicken wire filled with crushed copies of The Journal to hold it in shape. The wire cone should be wrapped in several layers of scrap material before covering in velveteen. Mrs. Burr believes that upon black, jewelry is displayed to best advantage, but any color could be used. Wrap and fold. the velveteen smoothly and pin in place. Long pins with white glass heads are used to attach the individual pieces of jewelry, which may include cuff links, tie tacs, tie bars, lodge pins and military insignia as well as women's items. Fannie Burr prefers not to glue the pins to the jewelry, as she often removes certain items to be worn, and she frequently rearranges them on the tree. Clamp-type earrings may be used along the seam of the covering without damage to them. She suggests the placing of the tree upon a lazy-susan base in order to turn it as desired for a varying display. "It's easier to work on it that way, too," she states. Her own large Jewelry Tree holds hundreds of pieces and is the result of years of collecting.
