Kaleidoscope of Copper, Beaded Wire Tree Sculpture
13"High x 11"Wide x 10"Deep. Created using 24 and 26 gauge non-tarnish copper wire. The twigs and branches contain hundreds of metallic colored glass fringe beads. The fringe beads have a hole at the top of the bead, not through the center, so they look more natural when wirer into the tree. The base is made of hundreds of pieces of broken glass pieces and are attached to the base and between the roots using E6000 jewelers bonding agent. (E6000 is used to attach gem stones into their settings). All is mounted onto a 3/4" thick piece of solid blue-green glass, which matches the colors of the fringe beads. This piece looks magnificent when displayed in direct sunlight or in a very bright source light.
