Woodland Butterfly Suncatcher WIPs

Copper Wire Work Craft Project

View over my work in progress photographs for this beautiful copper wire work butterfly suncatcher. With layers a plenty of copper and semi-precious gemstones, wrapped together to create a decorative hanging decoration for the home and garden.  Topped off with a darkening oxidised patina finish, a good polish and glossy varnish. This artisan suncatcher design is happiest when bathed in sunlight!
