I like the design, but this would be very large to try and wear around a neck... maybe the next one would be better suited as a brooch? I love your work and It's really cool to see you branching out into a different genre with them. Each is a jewel on it's own! I'd be interested to see if you could work one into a hair ornament, like a buckle.
I like it but the wire coils wrapped about the large wire throws me off a bit...maybe hard to explain but it kinda confuses my eyes when i look at it. It's a bit hard to distinguish between the tree leaves and the wire coils...if that makes any sense >__<
kinda on the fence about the pot too..perhaps its just the coils that makes the pot look funny to me.
it's great to experiment though because you always learn something in the process even if you end up failing so keep it up :3
Thanks for the input. The wire coils are meant to form clouds, they form a 3 dimensional effect that's lost in the photo....they're supposed to look like the clouds in old Japanese drawings. When I first did it, I left the coils out but it just looked a little too plain so I had to add the coils to make the whole thing pop out a bit. I'm thinking of adding more coils to make the 'clouds' more horizontal....if I'm not too lazy.
