Friday Featured Piece: La Guitarra Broodant

There is no woman who sleeps so deeply that the sound of a guitar won’t bring her to the window.

~ Spanish proverbs

Guitar have always been one of my fave musical instrument 
I don’t know why, but I think it’s sexy -apart from its shape.
Remember the old school days, I insisted to learn how to play it. Spent every day trying to remember the chords.

I still remember the song I learned: More Than Words by Extreme.

Okay, long story short: few weeks ago a friend of mine, Vickie asked me to made her a guitar broodant (brooch and pendant).
Her request remind me about my secret passionproject: making guitar with wire.

Vickie kindheartedly sent me some links for some guitar pictures. After some “meditational” process (read: sleeping, eating, playing with my babygirl, and repeating those things all over again), I sat and sketched my design. Vickie approved it, and she (once more) kindheartedly
set my wild imagination free 

And here’s the result:

I made it from permanently colored copper wire in gold and gun metal color.
Three strands of wire were used to form its body. Inner details were made of middle layer wire. Then I added 30 gauge wire as strings.

Materials:
Permanently colored copper wire & SWAROVSKI crystals

Size:
Approx. 2″ by 1.25″
