This is the first art piece I've done using metal, specifically copper. What inspired me was reading "The Art of Stitching on Metal" by Ann Parr. I love this piece. I used copper foil, copper mesh, wires of different gauges, and beads of course. I stamped, cut, embossed, painted, patinated, and then stitched on the circles. The grid behind it is a specialty trim that comes in grid form and is 8" wide. Underneath it all is a pretty piece of commercial batik. I used heavy interfacing as my middle layer and then glued the whole thing onto foamcore. I call this one Copper Sampler, since I did as much as I know how so far with copper. I hope others appreciate it.
