I created this out of reclaimed copper gutter and wire. I hand cut and hammered each of the flowers and wire wrapped them on the shaped and hammered heart. The word Mom was the hardest thing, making it tight but readable in the space allowed. I added two clear crystals to reflect the light.

This was custom made for my mother. She loved it!

My daughter requested a spiral mobile to hang over my grandson's bed. This is what I came up with. I use reclaimed copper gutter. Hammered a large section, cut a spiral with regular scissors. The metal is 24 gauge I think. folded the center end piece up to add a hook on it. This will be what it hangs from the ceiling with. The colors are achieved by careful heating with a torch. I sealed it with ProtectaClear and added a tear drop glass charm on the end.

Recycling is Beautiful.
