Copper wire willow tree

I've been working on this tree for over a week, I finely finished it yesterday, it has 285 strands of copper wire, each strand is almost 2 feet long, the tree stands aprox. 12 inches tall and the base is about 6 1/2 inches tall, so the whole sculpture is about 18 1/2 inches tall, I was going to add strings of glass beads to each wire but in truth it made it look cheap, so I left them off. I'm going to try to sell this on e-bay just for giggles and laughs to see how it does.

It's gorgeous! Think if it were me, I'd have to keep it!

Thank you so much. If I kept everything I liked I'd have no room in my house and no money in my pocket. LOL

So did you ever sell it, or is it still in your possession?

No, it sold a long time ago.

Well, if you ever make another sculpture with a lot of bare copper wire, I might be a buyer. I have added you to my Watch List.

I've been working on a few here and there, usually at night. Spring is my favorite time of year so I'm out in my garden for hours on end. Thanks for putting me on your watch.

Very nice. Copper and gold are my two favorite metals.
