I made some new wire bonsai wire sculptures. Smiley

This one is called "Bubbles and Butterflies." The butterflies are little swarovski crystals that glitter in the sunshine and really bring magic to this tree. It's mounted on a piece of slate that also sparkles just the slightest bit.



Close-up so that you can see the butterflies:



This one is made from brown copper wire and peridot chips. I knew I had to do something with this neat little river rock one day. I love the lighter brown stripe down the center.




Comments, critiques, or any feedback is always welcomed and heard. Smiley

I love your bonsai.  Probably the only ones I could keep and not kill.

I would probably be the same way. I hear they're pretty delicate. Tongue

Have you ever stared at something in awe, and realized that your mouth was open? Okay, how about not realizing your mouth was open until you realize you are about to start to drool from not noticing that your mouth was open so long? ...That's how much I like this. lol

They do take a little time, but they're not all that hard to make. I teach beginning level classes on it. Smiley

Yay! That's a wonderful compliment. Smiley
