View Full Version : Oak leaves and copper wire garland

November 23rd, 2019, 12:22 PM

I apologize for the poor quality of the pics... I am using my computer camera...

These are glass oak leaves made from Boro glass and fumed with silver, wrapped in copper wire... this is my first attempt to make a garland using my oak leaves, normally, when I make oak leaves I string them as sun catchers or wind chimes... Here, I am showing the garland wrapped around a whisky decanter...

Those are gorgeous, the copper blends so well with the mixture of red tones in the leaves, thank you for showing us.

Thank you ;)... I like the copper and glass too, it adds a nice contrast between the metal and glass... I will try to post more pics as I do more pieces...
