Decided to do a bit of sketching today to help plan out what style of tree I'm going to mount onto the piece of pyrite in shale. I don't often do this as I prefer the 'wing it and hope' approach, but I needed extra help visualising this one.
I fancied going with a sweeping, windswept kind of style which is going to be an absolute nightmare to wrap ... because where's the fun in doing something easy? 😳😂 Core made and can't wait to start on the leaves. It's going to look awesome! (I hope!) 😁🌳 .
Those of you waiting to see who won the dandelion from Countryfile Live: we will do a random draw from Instagram, Facebook and Twitter in the next couple of days. We've been so busy clearing up from the show and trying to get back to normal, there hasn't been time to collate all the entries. Thank you for being so patient.

throwback to some of my very early wire-work (6 months into the craft). when i first started, i spent a lot of time practicing individual techniques rather than just making pendant after pendant. once i was confident in my arsenal of tools, I turned my focus towards developing my "style". I've always felt that having a distinct and recognizable style is one of the most defining factors that separates an artist from a craftsman/skilled tradesperson. this pendant is one of the first where i started to isolate specific elements and carry them into later pieces for further evolution. while my current work is obviously more technical and refined, many of the core components to my most modern formulas can be seen in this piece i created over 5 years ago.
