Fantasy forest candle holder by illustrisdesigns Fantasy forest candle holder by illustrisdesigns

This unique Fantasy forest candleholder is wire wrapped with beautiful materials such as crystal glass beads and czech glass. The stunning green glass candleholder hangs in a open moon shape. I handmade al de little leaves surrounding the base and there are little red flowers everywhere. It has two stunning butterflies and I finished it of with a beautifull pendant shape drop at the bottom.

It would look absolutely stunning during the day if the beautiful beads reflect the sunlight in a magnificent way. To enjoy this beautiful unique piece in the evening, you just lit the candle.Candle

Hello! 
And don't worry about participating for this month - you are busy enough with other, more important things in life. We'll just comment away like you did participate. ;) 

I want to say that this piece is intricately designed and meticulously put together. It has so many small elements that it takes multiple takes on the image to fully get all the details in. And on the part of handiwork alone, it's undoubtedly a masterpiece. When putting the piece together in a visual form, you have also done a great job. For a piece like this, there's nothing better than to actually how the audience what it would look like when the candle is lit. And letting that photograph take centre stage is a great idea, too. It really helps to showcase your hard work and the beautiful piece. Overall, it's amazing for all its detailed glory. 

It is actually really hard for me to come up with something to say that can make this piece even better. So here are some potential suggestions that you can consider. I noticed that some of your photos are taken with a natural light on your work against a black background. I think that may help to highlight the smaller, detailed views in this photo collage. But out of the three of them, the lighting was probably the best on the third one on the bottom. The first one suffers from a visible light source that negates the use of natural light being a diffused source. You may have to play with lighting a little (or even use a light reflector) to make sure that your lighting source appear more diffused instead of a spotlight. That way the natural light will help your work to stand out even more. 

I hope this was of some help to you. 
And please, take care of yourself and your loved ones! :hug:

It's nice to see your projects again the in CRArtisanCrafts commenting month again. I love the color of the beads and how they catch the light from the candles and shine. Items like this just show all the time you put into your craft with all the little and complex details and designs. Love the work, and hope to one day get a item from you.

Hi Brianna.. thank you so much for your sweet comment, it really does mean a lot!. Although I LOVE comment month .. I did not enter this time. SinistrosePhosphate was so very sweet to feature my fantasy forest candle holder. I do love participating in it and look at all the wonderful work people make. Too little of us take normally the time to comment (me including). So I am Always very exited when a initiative like comment month comes around again. So I am very sorry to have to skip this one. One of my parents is terminally ill and fighting a loosing battle to cancer. These finall days all my focus has been on my mom and trying to do whatever I can. It does feel great to be tought of her on Deviantart and I will be more active again in the future. I hope a lot of people will participate this awsome comment month.

So sorry about about your parents, i really do know how that is. Its a good thing all your time is spent focused on them, i've been taking care of and nursing my mother after her heart surgeries these last two years. All my prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Thanks Brianna and yes then you would know how it feels. My mom had 2 heart attacks 17 months ago. One month after they discoverd she had colon cancer. One month after that all the scans and test refield it spread to the liver. She has been fighting it and I have been going to every drs. appointment and chemo since. But last december, the day before xmas we got the news that last resort chemo is not working anymore and that there was nothing they could do for her. Since yesterday she is really bad, confused, will not eat and drink etc. Watching a parent in pain is the worst thing I ever felt. It is strange how you think you understand death having had loved ones pass before, but you would not understand how different it is when it is your parent untill you experience it. Thank you for your sweet words Brianna, I hope your mom gets well and her heart will stay strong!

Hi! Thank you for requesting feedback from :iconphotographyguide:!

This is a very impressive piece! Many of the components look intricate enough to be its own piece, and together, the components form a beautiful, colorful, and magical scene. The wire surrounding the candle looks very sturdy, and the contrast between the relatively simple inner and elaborate outer parts of the candleholder keeps the viewer's attention drawn towards the details in the latter.

Since you asked for feedback, I have a few suggestions for you. First, I suggest using a white border for the collage instead of a black border. The main reason for my suggestion is that each of your photos has a slightly different background tint, and the black border makes these differences look more pronounced. A white border would not only complement your watermarks, it would also draw the viewer's attention away from the color transitions at the borders of the photos.

Second, for the collage I recommend keeping the candle illuminated in just the largest photo. The main photo does a great job of conveying the
 "big picture" and function of your piece, while the side photos offer a closer look of some of the interesting details. The problem with including candlelight in the side photos is that the bright light source and bars of light distract away from the details that you're trying to showcase. Hence, I suggest applying the illumination that you used for the bottom photo to the top and middle side photos as well.

I hope this helps, and keep up the amazing work!

The wire work you did on this is astounding! This is a perfect example of what can be made with wire wrapping that isn't jewelry! Just lovely.
