Web of Intention

While the poets were at work creating a poem for Diva, I was busy creating the beaded web for her final flower pane. Read how the web was inspired here.

A segment of the web against the flower pane

I have left a strand of the web bare, without beads, so that it can be used in a way similar to a clothesline. On this clothesline, Diva's new owners can hang a small piece of paper with any intention, wish or prayer they wish to manifest. Diva's light, shining from behind, through the flower pane and through the web, will energise what is written on the paper and bring it to life (and light). Once the intention or prayer has been realised, it can be removed from the 'web-line'. Even if removed before, that's okay. Once the light of Diva soaks through it, the process of manifestation has already begun. Therefore, the owner(s) can put a new intention, wish or prayer every day if they so desire.

As Diva inches her way towards completion, things are happening on many levels:
1. The Diva Kit waits to be presented to Poet of the Lamp, Tracy J.
2. The poems from the two Poets of the Lamp wait to be applied
3. The interactive situation involving the other poems waits to be activated

This lamp is going to be a treasure for the person who eventually owns it. Love the beaded web and how you are including the spiralled patches of wire and the bare wire too for the hanging of personal notes. I think that the web works well also with the background of the embossed glass. What gauge wire are you using for the web and do you have a particular colour scheme in mind when you are choosing the beads?

Glasshermitage - re gauge wire - I stripped copper wire from an electrical cord. As for the beads -I wanted to find rainbow coloured translucent beads (which I did find in the end in an art shop), but prior to that I got some solid coloured beads (goldy-red and plain gold) from the Indian store, amber translucent beads from an old necklace, wooden beads from an old Peruvian necklace. So it's a mix of differelty coloured beads from a variety of sources.
