Rust My Style!

(In my most operettic voice)...taaa-daaaaa! So maybe these don't actually deserve all the fanfare, but I've seriously tried to get them finished and posted for soooo long! I've been creating things from rusty wire, and these are the first two I have ready to show you. A crown made from rusty wire and a crusty wire bird's nest/stand.

"Queen of Rust" is a crown topped with a finial, wherein resides a 1920's flapper girl.




"Bird on a Wire" features an embellished bird wearing a rusty crown topped with a sea blue-green Swarovski crystal.

The stand sports a blue egg cradled in wire and a curled wire "nest".

They are listed in my online boutique, and can be viewed in greater detail by clicking here.

I would like to take a moment to mention my late father-in-law, who went to heaven Friday, May 29. He knew where he was going, and went peacefully. A very funny man with a kind and gentle spirit, he will be greatly missed. I'll always be grateful to him for raising the wonderful man that is my husband. Here's to you Jewell ~ I'll see you again.
