Due to my declining health, I haven’t been able to do commercial blacksmithing in a long time. You’ll see me giving advice and playing at an online casino nowadays.
Two roses and several vines – one terminating in a leaf – entwine to make this wall hanging candle sconce a unique, one-of-a-kind item. As a note of interest, the two roses and the rope-edged perimeter ring are all shaped from a single piece of steel. The ring is riveted at the overlap point (bottom), and the two roses are mounted in a staggered configuration. The entangling vines, candle-holding spiral, and the drip catcher have all been added to the basic ring/rose configuration, held tightly together by a ribbon-textured metal collar. In the center, at the base of the oval, a twisted loop and drip plate, with a hanging ornamental curl, are ready for a tall tapered candle.
