French Crown Wire-Art...All Is Calm

 Burlap Luxe French Wire~Art...
My Wire In Creating

My hands take to bending and twisting wire into wire and
cartapesta crowns.

The making of a beautiful unique tree topper for
your Christmas tree.
As well as a winter wedding cake topper or,
any season.

I adore wire art, be it pieces I weave into my French home designs
or create myself...
All with unfussy finishes,
 Patience Is A Virtue
 Tin Tag

I love the unexpected, where a bit of reclaimed old adds to
its statement charm.
Vintage brocante, adds all the rightness in its message from
old tattered vintage book word ephemera.

Shades Of The Sea...Sea Dream Catchers

 Burlap Luxe French Wire~Art
Dore Callaway
Burlap Luxe 

Shades of the SEA...Sea dream catchers.
Entangled, caught and trapped from the sea.

My imaginative dream catchers are created with hands that gather from
the sea.
Intertwined wire with crusted sea foam capturing quiet dreams from
the deep sea. 
 A Storied Sea

Dreams that gather deep from the sea, oyster shells, sea pearls,
fisherman's netting all entangled in wire from the open sea.  
 Pieces of sea serenity can always be added to a
sea dream catcher

" Tied to the sea"
 Sweet sea dreams dot the shores.

 Sea Dream Catchers
