I love rust. Its no secret. When I see a piece of rusty wire, no matter how bad its condition, my heart skips a beat.
I found this old piece of messed up rusty wire out the back of our property somewhere and picked it up. It was pretty mangled. No way to unravel it, so I did the next best thing. I weaved it into a circle, added a few bits of rusty barbed wire and called it a wreath.
You can see how it looked in its first incarnation here.
I lived with it like that for a while but it just wasn't ... finished.
You know what I mean.
It needed something... more. It needed a strand of wire with glittery green beads on it.
And a couple of aged keys.
The wire with beads was given to my by a friend who said 'I thought you'd be able to use this'... how right she was!
I love the shine of the gold wire and the sparkle of the beads against the flatness and colour of the rusty wire.
I love the tangles of the wire.
I'd say its finished now... it just works!
PS On an aside, the 'search this blog' link isn't working... I have no idea why. It used to work!
