I left you hanging yesterday, but here is the final product.
It did not turn out how I had envisioned it (which my initial vision and final product are generally different), but I really like it! My initial vision had lots of reds mixed in with gold and silver, but I ended up using copper instead. It's very interesting to me because "metals" are very trendy right now, and I am not a trendy person. I am unsure if I am drawn to the metals because that is what worked best for this, or if I am drawn to them because they are trendy. Maybe the two cannot be separated...interesting, indeed.
