Wire Art – Rasta Woman Wall Decor

When I lived in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, I was surrounded by beautiful people with long dreadlocks. Most of them were practicing Rastafarianism, which is a strong religion in the Caribbean. I made a lot of friends and of course I got inspired by them. This wall decor is my interpretation of Dorothy, a beautiful, witty and very courageous women, whom I had the pleasure to meet there.

Dimensions 18″x22″. I used galvanized wire and a few wooden beads, to emphasize the Rastafarian liberation colors. I started with a frame, again free form, I never draw anything on the paper! I let the wire talk to me 🙂 Then I filled in with thinner gauge wire. Here are some more detailed pictures.

So… let me tell you the story…

This piece was made in St. Thomas. 100%. I took it with me in New Jersey and displayed it in my gallery here. I also advertise my art pieces online. The funny part of this story is that this piece was purchased ONLINE by an art collector who lives in St. Thomas! How weird is that? Or maybe how cool is that? My Rasta Woman went back home! St. Thomas IS her home. What do you guys think?????

Wire Art – Lionfish

I’ve been asked recently about my Lionfish Mobile Ornament source of inspiration.



Here is the story:

Lionfish is a destructive fish. It has poisonous fins, it hurts badly if it stings, it eats other fish and their eggs, especially lobster eggs, so it is a threat for the environment if spread out of control.

I once saw one Lionfish caught in a fisherman’s net in St. Thomas, USVI. I did not have a camera handy to take pics. But my brain certainly photographed the creature. It was as big as my fist, with long, beautiful, colorful fins. It was moving like crazy. My feelings were so strong, I was looking at a rebel 🙂 I immediately associated the Lionfish image with a punk teenager, angry at the whole world.

That image stayed in my head for a while. I stored it naturally. And one day I made her with seed beads and wire.

Wire Art – Fish Ornaments

Water is my element. Besides all, I was born in Cancer Horoscope, so it makes sense. 🙂
I am naturally inclined to arts and obviously inspired by water. The result is that Marine life totally fascinates me. Although I am not brave enough to snorkel and observe life in person, my imagination goes wild ALL THE TIME.

I created many figurines like mermaids, fish, octopus, jelly fish, turtles… you name it. People hang them by the curtain rods, ceiling fans, lamps or even in Christmas Trees.

In this post I would like to show off some of my fish ornaments.

This is my interpretation of Nemo, approx. 12″ long. I used wire and seed beads (hundreds, if not thousands).

This cutie is Spikey. There are many lion fish specimens in Caribbean waters, that’s my inspiration.


And these little golden creatures are having a party 🙂

Hope you liked my creations. We call them Mobile Ornaments here, in US. They look awesome by the windows!

Wire Art – Goldie – Fish Wire Sculpture 3D

I love being by the ocean, therefore marine life is a big inspiration for me.

This is the largest golden fish I made. Obviously, she is a girl, and I named her Goldie. She is approx. 24″ long, fully three dimensional. At this moment she is displayed in a private medical office specialized in hearing aids. This is where Goldie’s new owner works. I am very happy that people with hearing problems can admire her and, maybe Goldie can fulfill their wishes… besides all, that’s what a gold fish is supposed to do.

Please look closer… she is made with steel wire and lots of aquamarine quartz crystals adorn her. Isn’t she adorable?
