Description

Item number:W603CXL
When giving a gift of bubbly, make your gift extra special with a Champagne/Cava bottle decoration. It provides a fond memento to keep. Wonderful as a wedding decoration too.

The decoration just slips over the neck of the bottle and rests on its gentle curves. The bottle decoration is made from sumptuously opulent gilt on copper wire which has been lovingly plaited, shaped, curled and gently hammered to create this stunning design. Wooden butterfly buttons nestle gently among the curls of wire, lucite flowers, and leaves.

The wire is lead, nickel, and cadmium free. The gilt colour is made of a gold enamel on silver plated copper wire. The wire has a tarnish resistant coating of polyurethane enamel so does not need polishing.

The front of the decoration measures approximately 13cm by 12cm at the widest points. (5 by 4.5 inches approximately). The plaited oval that slips over the neck of the bottle has a diameter of approximately 7cm by 6cm (2.75 by 2.25 inches).

Depending on the design, wire ends are either pushed together, curled, coiled, filed, glued, and/or tucked away. After purchase, due to normal wear and tear, items should be regularly inspected for wires that have moved out of place or for broken wires and embellishments. The item should not be used if it is damaged.

Bottle not included.

Inspiration

I am inspired by nature and the shapes and forms found in the natural world. I wanted to make a decoration/jewellery for the home that was both useful and beautiful. Useful in that it adds that extra something to a gift of a bottle of bubbly and can be kept as a memento and reused, and beautiful in its shape and form. All my pieces are made by hand. I love creating the curls and swirls of wire. Pieces develop and come together as if with a life of their own, as the pieces themselves seem to guide me to create various forms. For me, handcrafting something is in many ways the same creative process as painting on canvas, almost meditative and just as artistically satisfying. Each piece brings me so much joy, and if I could, I would have them all decorating my house, but as I cannot I am sharing them with you.
