A special gift

Last week and over the weekend, I have enjoyed working on a version of 'Family' that is for a very special friend's 40th Birthday. I dare post it here as I know how little she looks her computer (but she does have her mobile phone permanently attached to her!) For the first time I have done this piece on a torque rather than a chain, so it can sit high above her chest. This piece needs oxidising- to pick out the detail of the words, polishing, and then the photos need to be mounted in it. It is a time consuming piece to make, but I already know how she will feel when she opens the box and finds this inside. Well worth the effort. I will post a pic of the finished piece later this week.
