Friday Featured : Dance of The Phoenix Series

I love Harry Potter series. It really drives my imaginations gone wild!
These designs are the results.

There are many magical creatures in Harry Potter, among all Fawkes is my favorite. Not to mention unicorns ๐Ÿ™‚
When I read the books, I always imagine how Fawkes flies, how he burnt into ashes and rebirth, his loyalty, his bravery, his song, and so on. I kept the ideas in my mind, and didn’t know what to do, until several weeks ago the designs came up.

The very first design of this series named The Path to Heaven.
It was made of 999 fine silver wire, soldered and hammered then oxidized to give it depth. Unfortunately it came up a lot like Keri Luiz from Pheonyx Art logo. When she mentioned it, I was shocked and feel bad because I don’t wanna offend anyone with my design.
However the problem was settled in a very civilized manner. I will have to modify the design if I ever make it again, which is a good thing to do so I can have my own design instead of something similar with someone else’s identity.

Here it is, the first design

And this is the modified design, in progress

The Circle Has No Ends is the next design I came up.
It shows a Phoenix in a circle pose, where its head and tail met. It represents the death and rebirth cycle of a Phoenix.

Here it is

The 3rd design was named Wind Rider. It was made of a single wire, without any soldered joint. I’ve created two version of this design: a copper brooch with handmade pin, and a silver pendant.
