Butterfly.......

I have to admit i was off balance a bit lately. With the country flooding in the North and bush fire in the South we all feel the hit......

With a brand new Market coming up this Sunday, I sit myself down on the workbench and slowly get into creative mode again.



It's a bangle with hammered butterfly wings as a focal and a freeform organic shape that can be adjust slightly.
The 3mm thick square wire made it quite a substantial piece.

I also made a matching ring. The photo is taken just after the soldering and i love the rustic feel of it........



The new Eveleigh Artisan Market is just around the corner from where i live.
I am really looking forward to this Sunday!

What a wonderful idea for a piece...the butterfly made me think of spring.

Hope you're finding your balance and being creative at the bench. :)
