It's no great shock that I'm an admirer of Natasha Wozniak's work. I fell in love with her a long time ago and am delighted to see her new designs on Flickr. Curls, tendrils and spirals. More of the very black patina. I'm seeing a trend in my tastes.
The silver (really it's platinum) ring in the third row is more like the designs I originally admired. The wire is round, the ends have been forged into a point and the curls are more flowing and feminine.
But the new version is lovely too. Square wire with straight ends. More contemporary, masculine and bold.
And that brocade with the delicate tendrils on top! Love that. Might have to try to adapt it to metal clay. Is that copying? I guess it is. But maybe I can find a way to make it my own.
