fun with wire – a wire crown

I’ve always had a thing for wire. I love wire baskets, wire sculpture, wire anything. I love working with wire, only of course I can only work with soft wires. Lately I’ve been doing a bit more wire work cause its something I can do easily while sitting around watching TV in the evenings.
ie. I haven’t been doing any big projects but I’ve been making some smaller things.
Like this little wire crown made using gold copper wire in two thicknesses, brown copper wire and buttons.

The thick wire is about 2mm thick, the brown wire is 24 gauge and the thin gold wire holding the buttons is 28 gauge.

I made this little crown as a simple decoration, to sit on a shelf or something, but I guess it can be used as as a tiny crown if you put bobby pins on it!
