French Wire Art...Rustic Luxe

Burlap Luxe Art

My art in creating French wire art

Salvage rusted and decayed tin,
perfect in the use of my tags.
Vintage book word ephemerea

Crown And LampShade

I love the haunting shadow play with wire.
The shade I created to play off my
art and light.

I love the unexpected outcome.
Aged in cartapesta and a patina
of tarnish.

I weave and bend, twist and tie every
inch that goes into creating with
The chain wire garland, I use a crochet hook and single
crochet a chain woven into the wire.

You can follow my art and home designs on my
instagram account.

Doré I love your crowns! The chain garland is very unique to this charming piece. I just placed the BL crowns you designed on top of each
moss ball on the rusty iron urns on my mantle and I love how they look. Love the photo with the shadowplay.

That crown is so amazing. I love that it looks feminine, yet rustic. I have several crowns around my tiny farmhouse and am a huge fan of french wire work. Such a beautiful art form. Beautiful pictures.
