Halloween Pendant Wirework


About this design:

The brass skull and crossbones influenced me, the rest just came from my need to experiment, lol, I think the wirwork looks kinda shoddy, but my hubby and sis say I'm just over critical of myself. Opinions please?

Components:

16 gg copper wire, 18 gg copper wire, 26 gg copper wire, elbow grease, experimental weaving, and a brass skull and crossbones that used to be on a pair of earrings that broke on me, lol

    What part of your wire work do you think looks shoddy? Looks good to me and I am, of course, a well know authority on wire work and how to really mess it up! :D

    You are a PHENOMINAL wireworker LRC!! I dunno, just looks kinda unbalanced and sloppy to me…meh, we are our own worst critics I guess, lol.

    Fun! I think the wire work looks just fine! Somethings are not always neat, it can be messy “by design” I use that technique personally; frequently ;)

    I like it. Nothing wrong that I can see except you being overly critical about it. If you are that unhappy with it just try again. Nothing ventured, nothing agained. I think it is great you tried something diffeent!

    I think this is really cool Ravin, perfect for Halloween….
    I think your wire work is great… and I think the piece will look even better when the copper darkens a little with natural patina !!
    Great job !!!!
