A Brief Detour

   I have been redecorating my bedroom all week. Over the years the changes in furniture has caused my room to be a mismatched horror of white wicker, dark woods and now a new/used bed in maple.

  I woke up one morning and decided I had had enough and launched myself into a rather big project which has taken me away from wire for a short time.

  I found a gorgeous spray paint called 'Oil Rubbed Bronze". Doesn't that sounds cool? And it really looks cool too, and so all my furniture is getting painted and that takes awhile.

  I've always played it safe decorating with very neutral colors, but now that I have been at this creative life for more than two years.... I find the old ways no longer satisfy:) I find I want more red and orange and bright colors in my home and I'm doing alot of shopping to find some bargains to add color to my room. It's definitely a budget redo:)

  In the meantime my friends, I have found two more wonderful artists who work with copper metals and wire to make lovely vessels or sculptures. I'm sure that you will enjoy them!

Eventually I will get back to my own wire projects.


  1. Sounds like fun! Seriously.

    You're still being creative, just in a different way :)

  2. You're right!! I can't help but notice that the entire process of designing my room, is exactly the way I design jewelry too. My mind works in exactly the same way:))

  3. One would not expect your creative mind to alter how it works. Good for you for spicing up your space. The colors sounds gorgeous. I am off to check out the links you suggested.

  4. Christine, Thank for your comment. The links are right up your alley especially!

  5. The metal weavings by Mary Hicks are incredible! Her work is so stimulating and has my head spinning with her creativity.
    Thank you so much for sharing.
    Hope you are making progress on your redecorating!

  6. That surprises me a little Christine, I thought you would prefer Frances with her basketry work:)
