I love the shapes and forms of grape clusters and their leaves. My parents had a concord grape arbor, and the vines with the little curly tendrils were fascinating. I have used these shapes for inspiration in “Shiraz” and other pieces like the “Grapevine” ensemble. Of course the wonderful wines, dolmades and dried “yummies” that can come from this marvel of nature are certainly benefits one cannot ignore!

I added color to the silver toned vintage buttons, earrings and pin with Pinata Paints. These paints are formulated to paint metal objects. Pretty cool stuff!
