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?


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 !!!!
