Wine tasting event with a friendly blacksmithing competition

We were in Kelowna last week and Sunday we went to a winery in Lake Country that combined wine tasting and a blacksmithing competition. I have videos of the action but haven't figured out how to attach them. Hopefully I will get them posted.
The steel dream catcher center feather was made from 1 1/4" cable forged into an ingot and then a portion parted out. The center feather had beautiful contrasting detail of a feathers' construction from the cable strand detail in the forging. Unfortunately, my photo does not show it.
