All wrapped up!!


This Little number was inspired by a trip to Melbourne on the weekend,I took my kids to a Manga festival ,manga you ask, a style of japanese drawing and cartoons. We lined up for 2 hours but it was worth it to the kids. I had to sign them in, then I escaped to the city for a bit of retail therapy!!!.

I saw something that inspired this piece in a bead shop wire wrapped around in a ball shape.

I couldnt wait to get home and yes this is the result!!! rusty of course.

Hope you enjoy!!

Another wonderful rusty little piece of artwork Jen. Love the mica over the wording and the backing wired piece reminds me of either a bear-trap or a snow-shoe....yeah, I know....poles apart, aren't they!!! lol
