New wire project

I took a little break from making wire photo holders (for my- "hopefully up in a few days" -ETSY site), and made bunches of vines instead. I had a large vintage frame, so I ran some vertical and horizontal wire to suggest a window....

......and attached the vines in various places for stability. I visualized it as a display for photos or jewelry or...?

(I think it would be cool as a family tree display...using similar little photo frames, but I only had larger ones, so I just used some other stuff I had on hand for these pics)

It is quite large--about 38x32--and when we ever get a warm day, I'm going to get outside and distress it for a funkier look!

Your WIRE CREATIONS are just AmaZiNg!!! You have quite the skill working with all sorts of metal... A few chippy shabby chips here and there would definitely be the perfect finishing touch!*!*!

That is the coolest thing EVER. I wish I had your wire-bending talents; I love this stuff but never can get it quite right...
