See How To Make A Wire Fairy
I am in love with these sculptures. They are absolutely beautiful. They are almost life-size and made entirely from wire. I saw that on his website he shows you how he makes them.
If you are DIY minded you could easily take the concept and try making one for yourself. They do however sell 8 inch DIY kits that they can ship to the states. They are obviously not as grand as the bigger sculptures but they are still beautiful and worth every penny.
