This lovely piece is made from eco-etched copper and bronze with Sterling silver and gold filled accents. It is 6" x 6". Each of the three units was hand drawn prior to being etched and include two unique flowers along with a stand of tall grasses. The centers of the two flowers have elaborate adornments in Sterling silver and reticulated Sterling silver hoops and gold filled hoops or "bubbles" dance across the surface of the metal and the fabric background. All of the layers were soldered in place then a dark patina was added to show off the etched designs and textures. A layer of lacquer was added to protect the color then the metal pieces were hand sewn to a hand quilted, black linen background. The quilted background was then hand stitched to a stretched canvas that was painted black. The backside is finished with a heavy paper and a sawtooth hanger has been added.
