Oak leaf wreath

I was contacted recently by a customer with an enquiry as to if I could make them a metalwork wreath?  It was a coincidence as I had planned to make one with holly & ivy at Christmas but ran out of time...This is the finished piece which is going to be placed inside but would work just as well outside - I thought I would try it out on our own back door!  I am sure I will be creating some other versions of wreaths which could also be used as a table decorations.

The leaves & acorns have been slightly curved 
which creates more interest

Due to the lacquer applied to the copper & brass the piece could be placed outdoors too....

Happy Easter

I hope you all have a lovely Easter!  I shall be exhibiting at the Easter Fine Food & Craft Fair again this year.  It's held in the grounds of the splendid Trereife House nr Penzance. It's on for 4 days & we will also be open at the Drill Hall apart from Easter Sunday.  
I do have a few of my new metalwork bunnies available... 

Who shall have a fishy....

I've been making some new copper & brass fish decorations....obvious really when I live by the sea!!! These are only tiddlers...maybe large versions would work too???
