Twist a twisting Wire Angel

All you need for this project is a few stems of willow and wire
I am twisting the Angel out of apple green wire and dressing it in willow. New growth does not condition well and is best avoided in arrangements but it is perfect for my wire Angel because it will wilt and curve around the shapes made by the wire as it dries

About me

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
