This stars’ unusual design is the result of years of developing my skill in wire wrapping.It is a one of a kind piece, reminiscent of the Renaissance period, when such things were carefully made to last for generations. It is truly of heirloom quality. I can honestly say in all my years of making handcrafted gifts and attending fairs, I have never seen anything remotely similar to my stars. Made using no glues or solder. It is a heavy piece and measures 9” tall and 8” across. If you are not fully satisfied with the craftsmanship and quality of this star, I'll gladly refund your money.
