Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom, who turned 69 this week, asked if I would make jewery for her birthday gift this year.  Of course I said yes - I was so excited to make it for her! 

Then I started working on the piece, and...well...I just wasn't loving it.  I had an idea in my head of what I wanted, but was having a hard time making the jump from the idea in my head into reality.

So I've been working for more than a week to get it right, and (finally!) I am really happy with the results.  Mom asked for something she could wear with either brown or black, and she loves wearing silver. 

So, without further ado, here is her gift:

Discs made from etched and patinaed copper and an antique tin I had are riveted to reticulated and patinaed sterling silver sheet, giving a decidedly modern look to the set.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!  I love you!
