This was just the perfect challenge for me... I've had a project that I've been meaning to work on for quite some time, but kept putting off (which is really bad, 'cause it was supposed to be a present for my dad  Embarrassed)

I was inspired to make this piece by an image of a wire crochet sculpture by Ruth Asawa which was shown at the San Jose Museum of Art (you can see it here; http://www.sjmusart.org/content/collection/highlights/sculptures/item_info.phtml?itemID=70&typeID=sculptures)  The bottom part made me think of a jellyfish... and as my dad had given me a really nice fishing reel for christmas, I thought it would be fun to send him a little something from the sea Cheesy

Anywho, here it is, my jellyfish out of water Grin

(Inside the jar I got to display it in)


(a close up of it in the jar... i like how it kinda looks like it's underwater Cheesy)


(a closer shot of the body of the jellyfish)


(a closer shot of the tentacles)


My jellyfish was crocheted using fine silver wire, and the tentacles have swarovski crystals dangling down from them... I meant to take shots of the "in-progress", but forgot my camera at work Sad
