Blue Bottle Vine

Look what sprouted by my Walnut tree. It 's a blue bottle vine. It has been in progress for quite a while. I have learned to make wire harnesses for the bottles so they are secure. I cut the copper leaves from a copper sheet and folded the veins in. It's been a labor of love. Enjoy! Jlily

Thank you all for your compliments. There are also grapes made from gems and attached with wire and other beads and things for added bling. They don't all show in the picture but I think just the blue bottles and copper do make a statement by themselves. Jlily
