All Wired Up

I love, love, LOVE this scrap telephone wire my mom found for me. You may recognize it from previous pieces, like my bugs. Now I'm nearing the end of my colorful supply (note to self, must scrounge up more!). Inspired by native bead work, I decided to do some wrapping with the wire. I've had this beautiful piece of wood that I've been wanting to do something special with, it's almost a piece in itself. I decided to do some wire wrapping on it, and I love the tribal feel that resulted! Here are some images, I have one or two finishing touches to add, but I really like the simplicity of the piece so far and do not want to lose that look...

Love this piece of driftwood.

I cannot wait to try this with some "hole-y" beach rocks, other unique pieces of wood and some metal pieces!

Found Faces

When I'm not out junking for materials, I try to keep my creative muscles in shape--the only part of me in shape at the moment, ahahahah. One way I do this is to seek inspiration everywhere I go. I look for visual treats, overheard tidbits, and other sensory experiences I can draw from. One thing that constantly pops out at me are "found faces," hearts, letters and other symbols I encounter in nature or in man-made materials and structures. It's just fun for me.

Would love to see your finds! Feel free to post them here to share!
