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!

This is so pretty! "This rocks" for sure! Smiley

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
