WOW! Where'd all the Prices Go???
They're floating on the market. Now that Elizabeth Berrien is hailed as the "Rolls Royce" of wire sculptors, the demand for her works has outstripped her rate of production. Art collectors and corporate art buyers have been purchasing Elizabeth Berrien's wire sculptures so rapidly that she's sometimes overwhelmed trying to keep up with the demand for her amazing wire sculptures.

When demand outstrips supply, we adjust by gently floating prices upward until things balance again. This happens occasionally with Elizabeth Berrien's unrivaled wire sculptures. From a collector's standpoint, they are hailed as the finest works available within the field of contemproary wire sculpture.

We're in the process of removing prices from the pages of the WireLady website. Since there are more than 100 pages, this may take some time. In a while, we'll re-introduce new prices on the web pages. We appreciate your patience as we undertake this process.

We apologize to loyal clients who face higher prices for new purchases. For the time being, we'll honor any prices still listed on the website. If you're a loyal Berrien fan and can recall an earlier price listing on a page with prices removed, we may apply our sliding scale. Long-time collectors celebrate the appreciated value of their earlier investments in Berrien wire sculptures.

ALL PRICES LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

For current prices on different sculptures (animals, botanicals, etc), call us at (707) 445-4931 or check with a Gallery that carries Elizabeth Berrien's works.

Chicago Area Discovers the Wire Zoo!
Elizabeth Berrien's biggest exhibit of the year happend at Mill Pond Gallery in Long Grove, Il. Owners Tobin Fraley and Rachel Perkal, who also own Woodland Grove Gallery, flew Elizabeth and her husband Nick out for the opening reception.

Berrien packed a 7-ft, aluminum jumping horse with her luggage, loading it with several smaller sculptures.

The show was a resounding success, a near sell-out. During opening weekend alone, over 15 sculptures sold, and order were placed for almost a dozen more. This was an incredible show. Mark your calendar - Mill Pond Gallery will host a two-month exhibit of Berrien wire sculptures in the spring of 2007!

Life's Been Busy...
So busy, we haven't had time for updates! Elizabeth Berrien's been swamped with commissions for wire sculptures from collectors throughout the world. She also created special works for exhibit at the Morris Graves Museum of Art, and lectured the Redwood Coast Mensa Society (of which she is a member) on the technolgical aspects of her amazing wire sculpture technique.

It is sometimes challenging for Elizabeth to balance her exciting list of commissioned works to create with her personal life. During the summer, members of her family experienced accidents and illnesses. Fortunately, her wire sculpture is a portable medium, and she can work with wire in almost any environment - very important when visiting loved ones and attending to their needs.

During April, when Elizabeth's farm cats caught a bat, she had to place three of them in Quarantine. While she and the cats are considered to have experienced only "light risk", it will be a relief when quarantine expires in mid-October.

CreatureSpeak - Talk to your Animals!

Linda S. Wahlund uses her intuitive gifts as an animal communicator and Reiki Master to help people understand their animals' innermost want and needs. She is amazing in her ability to find lost pets...

Elizabeth Berrien says, "My initial introduction to things metaphysdical was through my good friend, the late Susan Seddon Boulet. Linda Wahlund, another dear friend, mentors me in deepening my connection with the world of nature. Through Linda's coaching in Reiki and animal communication, my intuitive sense of being in touch with the animals I live with is greatly heightened.

"If you have a serious desire to learn what your dog, cat, horse or bird is trying to tell you, Linda S. Wahlund will open a window into their world. I can't recommend her highly enough."
