Mermaid in Swing
Made this tonight at an art walk.  She's actually pretty small.  She's made of flora wire and sitting on a dollhouse swing.  :)  One upcycle pendant on her chest.

Fairy on Swing
So this is an upcycle and wire piece.  I got a shadow box at Patty and Friends, took it apart and used the pieces for other frames.  I put the remaining parts back together, painted them, and had this swing sitting around.  It was for holding plants (and for a while, I used it to hold a plant on my windowsill).  However, I always had a vision that it would be used for a sculpture.  It was just too low to be feasable, though, until I looked at this shadow box and realized what I could do.  I took the plant holder apart and put the swing inside the shadow box.  I made the wire fairy and added her to the swing.  It's actually kinetic because when the wind blows, the fairy DOES swing.  It's really awesome to see.  The fairy has glow in the dark wings, too! :)

Lucky Stars
This was a bear to make, oddly enough.  The story is this:  I made the stars while at the Ringling Museum of Art two weeks ago. I worked on the wire stars as part of an immersive experience for participants.  I got them back at the end.  There was a call for circus art so I opted to try for this.  It is the first time I have combined photo and metal together (one of my goals to try this).  The stars are from the event; four of them I have wrapped in blue and added the upcycled elephant pin.  I cobbled the frame together from three other frames, repainted.  The photo is one I took of the November Super Moon.  So....there it is!

Lucky Star Elephant
This is one of the stars made for the Ringling Museum of Art event this weekend.  I've upcycled an elephant pin and am considering this a lucky star (elephant with trunk up is good luck). :)
