Getting closer. There are still three pieces to be added and a lot of solder lines to be finessed. Who knew that the perfect sized circle for the space in the middle was actually a rectangular sandwich plate? There could also be a little touch of bling tucked in somewhere.
No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth ... a commitment to a dear friend and her family has absorbed a significant chunk of my time over the past two months. This week, I finally got back into my workshop. I started slowly, finishing one small piece and then making another simple design - just like a warm-up at the gym. This is an image of the work currently on my table. It is made 100% of recycled glass and will sit in a circular stand. The re-strip you can see looped around the work for now will be woven between the pieces to strengthen the solder lines to support the weight of the large pieces. With luck, I will have this finished by the weekend.
