    Before I read that you said musical, a treble clef came to my mind! It’s lovely, your work is so good. Please post again when you “chain” it.

    Excellent wire wrapping! I agree, it totally reminds me a treble clef – in sort of a loose, cool, not-cheesy way.

    Just a suggestion for a pic that shows the colors better: photograph it against a white or pale grey backdrop. All the red from the background (and copper wire) is skewing the camera’s color balance. Too much red is what’s making your dark greens look black and light blues look lavender.

    Another thing you can do is adjust the image’s RGB settings. Most camera software should have that as an editing option. Turn down the R and turn up the G & B.

    Hmmmm…i just realized that my last post might have come off as kind of critical. I didn’t mean it like that at all!! I really love the piece – I just wanted to pass on some advice about taking pictures with accurate colors. Sorry if i sounded to intense!

    This is gorgeous. I get the musical association also … it looks a bit like a backwards treble clef. And I love the wire wrapping; it’s awesome.
