Copper Wire Art is a Cool Gift
I recently discovered a neighbor and client who makes these cool copper wire art objects. To be fair, it’s a family deal and together they make some really cool stuff! Have a look at this video and perhaps you can think up a few designs.
I actually took home one of the butterflies (large) and a salamander (the darker colored one). I have a friend who is a researcher and she studies butterflies. I thought it would make a cool gift.
AHHH, What to choose...
So if I send that butterfly back home to friends, I have to send gifts to several others. Time to make a list and secretly discover their favorite animal.
My best friend loves Capybaras which is a giant extremely friendly hamster. When I say giant I mean the size of a large dog! Now I wouldn’t send her a life sized one but a small pendant or mantle piece would look cool.
Current Copper Wire Art Designs & Possibilities
I saw about a dozen and a half designs and then several sizes. Those little salamanders were different colors so I’ll have to check if it’s a colored copper or a different metal. So maybe there are 3 choices to be made before considering adding some sort of stone or charm.
So object size, object design, type and density (thickness) of wire.
The designs I saw included butterflies, dragonflies, scorpions, centipedes, spiders and a Tree Of Life.
Adding Stones, Rocks or Crystals
Many people use crystals as a totem or good luck charm. I know copper is a special metal for certain crystals and people. Many Tree Of Life designs have crystals or rocks.
So what do you think? What designs would you create?
