This is my first project with wires and I'm quite happy with the result Smiley It's based on the movie version of Arwen's beautiful Evenstar. (I like the peice so much I just HAD to make one for myself)
I don't have any proper wire-working tools so some parts, like the top bit, were a real pain to make... it was totally worth it though!

That is amazing. You have a natural talent it appears. I have wanted to get back into jewelery making but I have all sorts of excuses(no time, not enough money, not enough supplies, I am a procrastinator, etc.). If you made this all painstakingly by hand and without proper tools, I feel like a bum! My New Years resolve will include at least one major metal project this coming year. You are an inspiration! It's beautiful and so authentic looking!

I'm gobsmacked, totally amazing piece, and I can't believe it is your first wire work project!  I can't wait to see what you will create when you have some practice and proper tools.  I'd kill for this piece by the way.

Thank you Cheesy

@BattleButterfly
This project spanned over five months! That's mainly cos I couldn't find the right sized/shaped crystals after I'd completed the frame. I've learnt to do things the other way round now, i.e. find the gems first then fit the frame around them Tongue

@Nobodyhasthisoneyet
I never really thought if it like that but now that you pointed it out I totally agree Smiley
