Wire Animals – Black Swan and a Pink Flamingo
by Kelly Tibbetts.
(Vero Beach, Fl)
This uses the same technique as the wire wrapped seahorses. I decided to do a black swan right after I watched the movie by that name.
The pink flamingo is for Florida. What better to represent Florida?
I’ve been trying to think of other animals and critters that would look good using these techniques. Any ideas?

What fun these are and lovely colours. I would like to see a poodle done like this. I think you have a winner with these. regards Kate
Really nice and different !!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your wire animals Kelly!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
Possible ideas…turtle, gecko or salamander, peacock, starfish, frog, tree, bee, koala…
As I always say, sometimes bad ideas lead to good ideas, so hopefully these will inspire some good ideas 😉
A hedgehog would be perfect for that technique. I have two hedgies, and there aren’t so many decent designs of them out there. Also, when you sell these animals, you could make a portion go to that particular animal’s cause. When I buy a cat statue, figurine, piece of jewelry, etc., because I have cats, hedgies and hamsters, I often wonder if my money wouldn’t help cats more by forgoing the trinket, and giving the money to a cat charity. BUT, if I can have the trinket and get money to the cause, then it’s a win-win.
Good ideas, thanks. I’ve been working on a dog lover line where I want a portion of the proceeds to go to some charity for rescues or something similar. Our dog was rescued and she is the best doggie! I named my business for her, Black DOg Jewelry.
Love the flamingo! I’m a FL girl too.
How about a persian- or any long haired- cat?
