Also, my piece is done, but I'm not unveiling it for a few more days because I need to get it custom framed. It's going to be real funky!
I hope some of you will be able to make it

Original hand-cut papercut
I was going for a funky, fresh take on the traditional tree silhouette. I imagine this piece above a fire place, desk, or a calming piece in a bedroom. I hate doing the usual so hopefully this is achieves the goal of abstract, yet recognizable.
On sale now on Etsy

SOoooo... I took a photo of my work space.
I'm in the middle of a new piece, It's a bunch of tree limbs at a funky angle cropped much wider than it is tall all just to look cool, abstract, and striking.
Otherwise, this is where i work. It's a cheap folding table from Target that is the perfect size for any of my three cutting mats, my computer, at least one cup of coffee at all times, and whatever random stuff that happens to accumulate there. As always there is a respectable pile of paper bits in various locations.
That's it. Take care

Here's a picture of us last year under that big beautiful tree. My older brother is the one in the center performing the ceremony. This photo was taken by the best wedding photographer ever, Rachel Hadiashar at Merge Weddings.

I made a 3d version of the chandelier piece just to see how it would look. I really like it, but I need to work on the material since it's hard to cut because it's so thick.
I hope to make it in a variety of colors and materials since they are simple, easy to ship, and easy to put together. My intended use is some sort of simple centerpiece in smokey acryllic, or a decoration on a buffet for a fancy party or whatever. In Acryllic, it should be strong enough to put a plate on. In paper, you can attach things like actual crystals hanging below the "candels" or drape necklaces on it to make it sparkle. It's a lot of fun!
