Wired Agates

About this design:

My first time working with wire to this extent. I really liked it and will be doing more of it.


This is a Spider Web Agate donut, Moss Agate nuggets and gun metal wire.

    It looks pretty cool…love your wire work! :-D Is that a bit of ribbon I see at the top of the donut?

    I think it’s fabulous,and I like the color combination. I don’t feel comfy giving a critique,as I don’t do wire work,but I would rethink the ribbon. I don’t mean that as critical,but I think it draws the eye away from the beautiful swirl. It’s just the way I viewed it.
    Those Moss Agate chunks are hot!!
