11/14 Years of Christmas Gifts

The fourth year (? the order of years 4-9 is still being debated!) of making Christmas artwork was this attempt at a reindeer. It is a kinetic hanging ornament that articulates in three places giving its legs, body and head independent motion.

The antlers do give it a moose-like appearance so we like to call it a reinmoose!

12/14 Years of Christmas Gift Art

The third year of making Christmas gift art was this brass wire ornament. It is a spiral tree shape with a star on top inside another spiral representing a traditional “ball” ornament.

It is shaped from a single piece of wire plus a second to make a hook for hanging. There were 30-40 of these made that year.

Moon and Stars

This moon and stars design goes back a few years. They make good gifts for many occasions. Many of my friends have them because I’m too cheap and lazy to go out and buy something! 🙂 They’re not too hard to make so maybe there can be some “how to” categories in the future. Tomorrow is two weeks of blogging for this newbie! Thanks for the encouragement.

Cock-A-Doodle-Do Rooster Mobile

Thanks to a helpful collector, the rooster mobile design is now documented and shareable. Apologies if there are too many similar wire posts in a row. Tomorrow’s image will not be wire art! Also, there will be no more rooster/turkey/Thanksgiving comments this year. However a 13-days-of-Christmas (yes 13) series of posts is on the way for your viewing pleasure!
