28 days of art---day #1

hello my four readers! i have been on a blogging sabatical so to make up for the long absence i wanted to offer up 28 days of art and craft...i have been busy working on several projects, one for sale and others for fun...

art number one: beaded mirror candleabra...i saw something similar in a craft mag awhile ago but it involved buying a ready-made form...i thought it looked a lot like an old vanity tray, the mirrored ones ladies used to put their perfumes and makeup on...i am hoping to put this and another two mirrors (soon to be revealed) in an art sale that happens three or four times a year at my friend caterina giglio's home...


it's been placed on a white wraught iron candle pedestal and has three crystal tea light holders placed on top...the flames are amplified by the reflection in the mirror...pretty! you can see i've attached vintage millinary flowers as well as found objects like an old key and a vintage diamond ring...
i've beaded some draping pieces, added a few chandelier crystals and vintage necklaces to create what i think is a one-of-a-kind functional art piece...let me know what you think...

have a great day...it's 60 degrees today and just two days ago it was snowing...aarrr....
