Measuring a little over 10cm from tip to tip this is the largest object I have made in silver to date.

This piece is also my first 'collaborative' piece.  I have made the back and now someone else will make the front!

A little 3mm high bezeled wall sits just in from the edge on the other side, waiting for a delicate construction to be inserted.

Soon it will be off on its journey to the other side of the world.  Bon Voyage!
