Keeping true to my original sketch
My latest piece is complete. When I look back to my initial drawings and notes I am pleased that I have kept true to my original vision. Obviously there are happy accidents along the way, small adjustments to make and problems to solve as work progresses - this is all part of the fun of making a freeform piece. The last elements to go on were the petal shaped shell pieces in deep magenta. I had left little voids in the wirework to sit them snugly into. Once they went in the whole piece looked quite spring-like.
What next? I rather fancy making a wire wrap cuff bracelet, as I'm keen to expand my range to include those as well as the necklaces.
