Outside the Box

Silver Wire Warped Boro Glass Drop at Alaska Boro BeadsI named this wire creation 'Outside the Box' for the different style of presented wrap. The cab is boro glass created by Jim at Alaska Boro with its unique shape of, what I would call a doughnut tear drop. The glass design invited ones imagination to come and play.

Playing with the off centered nature of the cab and the ribbons of color in it, a weave bezel kept the traditional concept of order. The flowing nature of the glass brought to mind plant vines. This I created with Sterling Silver wire as a vine though the pendant drop hole.

Vines are a fascination and this cab was a good match. So it seemed fitting that the two came together in this Sterling Silver wire wrap.

The finished creation is 45.0 mm high and 31.5 mm wide.
