Many of us love wire work so it's an absolute treat when we come across incredibly inspirational wire artisans like Ruth Jensen who is the designer behind Sparkflight on Etsy.

Ruth, who is from Minnesota, is a self taught artist who loves working with wire. She is able to make not only spectacular jewelry designs but also much larger wire sculptures.

Her ability to craft wire into 3D forms is so astonishing that I just had to include some of my non-jewelry favorites from her extensive portfolio from her studio site as well as her Etsy store.

Fantasy Fox Pendant Necklace

She says, "I make each sculpture one twist at a time, without patterns or molds, using bazillions of pieces of straight wire. I "see" the shape I want, and make the wires come together in that shape, like putting a puzzle together. (I love puzzles.)"

Little Blue Bird Necklace

Copper Showstopper

Crystal Flower Box

Her wire sculptures are worthy of any art gallery and I would not be surprised to see Ruth's work being exhibited somewhere, sometime! Her animal and people installations are just delightful!

Her mouse sculpture looks like he is trying to explain he was that close to being caught by a cat!

 Her life size sculpture of a man and his coffee must have taken her a long, long time to make! Ruth guarantees this man of steel copper is low maintenance.

Her Great Horned Owl sculpture is 2 feet high!
