I just started taking lesson from a local blacksmith, here are some pictures from the first lesson.
The curled and twisted parts came out rather well. However the widened part got burned and got marks all over it and the tips have blatant hammer marks
If there are any other smiths out there who could give me any advice or ways to improve, it would be appreciated.

Also I wasn't sure where to post this. If it would be more appropriate elsewhere, please let me know or move it where it belongs.

here's some more pics of things he made Cheesy I got this in the mail a few days after he made it without him telling me so. it is totally awesome!
is a decent scale photo, with my laptop in the background
close up of the twist (it's way more even than i expected for the first time!)
and the swirl!

so from the first pic, you can see the little bump before the swirl.. i think that's what makes it seem like it should be a plant hanger or something if we can mount it.

now i ask the rest of the crafty world...what else could we use it for?

Ooh.  That's really cool.  I strongly think that blacksmithing (and other old-school crafts/ skills) should be revived more than they are!
