Wire flower and vintage corbel

This project was fun--no real plan--just a general idea of size, and I bent and twisted the wire until something emerged that sorta resembled a flower!

The goal was to find a different way to utilize this cool chunky corbel I found the other day. Of course, the end result has to be functional, so I doubled the wire so it could hold photos, and you can also hang all sorts of stuff from the wire.

(Hmm, a jewelry hanger would also be a cool use--maybe with a wire tree?? I bought 4 matching of these corbels, so I have 3 left to play with!)

I AM AMAZED BY YOUR CONTROL OF WIRE AND THE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT YOU DO WITH IT. EVER TIME I TRY, I LOOSE CONTROL AND IT GOES "BOINGING" AROUND ALL OVER.
