New Wire

Yesterday I finished 3 smaller pieces in the last of my sterling silver wire - and with amazing timing my new order arrived this morning!

So now I have a few ounces of silver wire to play with. Picture me rubbing my hands together and chortling with glee :)

Here are yesterday's creations:

Letitia's Lament/ Letitia's Joy

On the left is Lament, with a top heavy weave representing the weight of grief bearing down
On the right, the the giddy curlicues of joy when grief is gone

Dark Temptations: also a double sided piece

The front is plain to show off the natural beauty of the stone.
The back has a dark section representing temptation encroaching on the bright fire with a 'serpent' detail.

Fuchsia Bud

A simple piece meant to keep the wire at a minimum to let the stone stand on it's own merits. It's a large 4.5cm amethyst. A fuchsia bud with a fluorite dew drop clinging tenaciously to the bottom.
