I started these long ago (construction in early June 2010 BEFORE my summer vaca- yikes!). You see, when I first soldered the silver pebble in place they were fine....but no, I had to be a perfectionist and try and adjust them ever so slightly.
This caused silver solder to go everywhere. I spent a fair amount of time trying to sand them...but now they've been unfinished for far too long. The truth is I kind of gave up on them, at least this pair.
I still like the design, they remind me of abstract flowers or a symbol of fertility. Me thinks I will try again...from scratch.
