Just Like Any Diary...
Yes, just like a diary, the writer loses track, forgets to write, gets lost. That’s the case with me and my blog. Here it is, half-way through 2020, and not a word! I have an excuse or two, but that only covers this year. I have no excuse for the rest of the time from 2018 until March of 2020, when coronavirus shocked us all. I’ll try to make up for the lapse.
I’ve been going through some work, and found the piece that I’m putting up here. It’s made of two thick pieces of flat copper, with shapes cut out from the top piece. The two pieces are then soldered together and treated as one. The process is called champlevee, French for fields and maybe raised areas. I’m not sure. I added tiny pieces of fine silver foil to make the blues stand out. There are a few pieces of gold: the dots in the background and the tiny diamond/squares in the foreground. The pieces measures about 4” wide by 2” high. I hope you like it.
