Seven Day Challenge- Day 2

I started today with intention so different from yesterday. The body of this piece is a rectangle of copper the breasts are old pennies formed on a dapping block, I covered it with solder and used a chemical to put a dark patina over it. The wings are an old tin with bits of color still on the metal and loads of wonderful scratches.
I’m happy with this piece all the irregularities and there is a nice weight to it, all that copper. It’s put together with cold connections and has a pin on the back so it can be worn.

Two down five to go....

You clever girl! These are a great idea! I need to wear one and have one hanging in every room of my house.

Great idea, Tory. Perfect for our age group, or should I say "eye group"? Lenall
