Challenging Challenges

Having enjoyed the Spring Is Sprung challenge set by Linda Jones at the WireWorkers Guild last month I've decided to enter a few more. Making something to meet a brief set by someone else exercises the greater grey matter not only in choosing colours, materials etc to match the requirement but also ensuring that the more technical side of bringing it all together works. Thinking of the layout of the piece, how it will fasten and how the various components can be joined together are as much of a challenge sometimes as the more creative aspects.

So here are a few challenges you might be interested in:

Also the Wire Workers Guild will publish any photos of pieces submitted before the end of March in their gallery - the piece must obviously contain some wire art. Check out the website for the rules.

Good luck and if I come across any more challenges I'll add them to the list above! Mean while here are a couple of photos of my entry to the MJ Spring challenge:
