Actually the metal connectors are ready made bronze pieces. I liked the swirls and baroque-like shape but not the perfect surface. Sometimes I just sand the pieces down but this time I played with my vintaj patinas (Kathy's fault that I have them! I just couldn't resist ;)).
The remind me now of moos and vines, of old overgrown stone temples. Broken resemblances of ancient cultures now recaptured by nature overflowing with life.
And some lampwork beads... you now how addictions are!
You can find them in my shop here :)
