I have to admit that I had no idea how I would approach this project. I was inspired but didn’t know how to begin. At work, I was using a watercolor pad with pediatric patients for an art project. As I was tearing out the last sheet, the spiral wire got pulled and bent out of shape. I was about to throw it away when it hit me that this would be my first piece. I got home, put in a movie and went at it with a pair of jewelry pliers. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but after an hour of struggling, I finally got my first Afro. The wire was not cut. The entire piece was used.
