Typically probably the most lovely artwork is crafted from easy or on a regular basis objects, and I feel that’s what makes these brass and wooden wall hangings so particular. They’re constructed from a handful of straightforward supplies and their intelligent design provides texture, geometry and visible curiosity to a gallery wall or perhaps a visually quiet nook.

- Two 1/four″ gold bounce rings (sometimes utilized in jewellery making)
- Masking Tape
