This glorious piece of wall jewelry is 8" x 8". It features tons of diamond, teardrop and oval shapes that have been eco-etched or hand hammered. The metals used include copper, bronze and brass. The center portion features a large egg shape cut from copper with hand hammered cross hatch design. On top of it, a large, funky star in more copper has been added which in turn is topped with a brass circle. Above the star sits an arrow shape made from fine rows of brass wire. A bevy of teardrops and ovals surround the central egg shape, alternating shape and metal type. The boders are made from long strips of copper with a very dark charcoal patina. Two borders feature copper ovals between brass diamonds and the other two feature brass ovals between copper diamonds. All layered elements are soldered together. All have a dark patina in the recesses to show off the etched and hammered designs. The surface was then sprayed with lacquer to preserve the glorious color. All of these units are painstakingly hand stitched to a black linen background that has been hand quilted with a dark gray thread in a diagonaly cross hatch design. The background was then hand stitched to a black painted stretched canvas. The back of the piece is paper covered with a sawtooth hanger.
