Here we go again with another trinket box, in another style. I like the hinge and the body of the box but the weaving needs to be done all over again. I failed to get it to line up top and bottom but I think I can succeed next time around. Also other flaws with weaving, to numerous to mention - lol!
If you ever want to have a critique of your wire work, just take a picture using the macro function on your camera. The camera does not lie and will show you all you need to know in order to improve;)
I have made 3 of these time consuming boxes and only the copper one is actually good enough to sell. The silver vial will be trashed. The silver/amethyst one will be saved by a future reweave.
I absolutely love what I am working on right now with these boxes, but I'm kicking myself too and asking myself 'Why do I do this?" I don't have this kind of time in my life, Uggh!!! But this is what I want to make, and I believe I can make these with a fine craftsmanship, if I just practice, practice, practice... I am so conflicted....
