This weekend, a few wonderful friends sat and listened to me. And one took action. For this, I am very grateful. This is going in her thank you! (Maybe one very similar, anyway!!! There must be a secret to getting perfectly curved wire.)
The origami butterflies were done following a you-tube video by Michael LaFosse.
I did the mobile below a year or two ago. I thought I was so clever to use jewelry making supplies (i.e. beading wire, crimp beads, etc.) to refine it a bit (vs. tying knots). Using the twig was a little easier than the wire and this butterfly was a simpler origami pattern, but I loved the way it turned out, also.
If you know the secret to the flawless bending of wire, please let me in on it! I could also use a lesson in taking pictures of mobiles!
