The dolphin is another sea creature I have been fascinated by since childhood. They found their way into my drawings and embroidery, and now this fantastic piece of wire art. I hand-forged the frame out of sterling silver, then spent hours and days patiently and meticulously wrapping each tiny gemstone bead.The spirals in the tail hearken to my Celtic roots. The underside of the dolphin is filled with teensy faceted aquamarine rondels, and the top side is covered with tiny faceted iolite rondels, all netted in place with meters and meters of hair-thin fine silver (99.9%) wire. Keishi pearl and labradorite seafoam drip from the tips of the tail and the ornate double chain of silver linked aquamarines which sparkles like the sea.
This fantastic piece of wearable art will arrive in a gift box, with the artist's card.
