Nice use of text, and I love the brad for the eye! Amazing how the symbolic eye seems to SEE. What also caught my eye: "London". I have have read Johnson's Life of London - highly recommend for summer reading.

Recommendation now added to my inter-library loan request list. Thanks. And, yes, the all-seeing eye happens to love London! They do tea so well!

Yup, it's new. I am transfixed by metal, and I love the repetition of hammering and sanding. Plus, it's a challenge incorporating the paper with the metal. Hooked, hooked, hooked, am I!

Will you be donning a welding apron/helmet any time soon? It can be fun!

At the moment I'm using cold connections, but I do have a propane torch and safety goggles(courtesy of my daughter), so it's probably only a matter of time until I step up to the helmet and apron. Ages ago I took a vocational plumbing course in night school and earned an A for soldering. I like connecting things, clearly!

I did two semesters of sculpture metal work in school. My favorite was torch welding with oxy-acetylene; working with copper, nickel, silver, brass. I also did a bronze casting, which I loved. I also played around with MIG, TIG, and stick welding a little bit. Only two things survived: a fabricated letter opener and my bronze casting.

I also took two semesters of jewelry making, working in sterling, copper, and brass. So much fun! My favorite thing again was casting. I made a sterling silver band that I still wear. Nothing like a custom made ring. Fits like a glove!

Are you doing rivets? I think one of my first assignments in jewelry was cold connecting with rivets.

Geez! I love to read about how many things you have experienced! Yeah, I'm riveting. (Ha!) I also use a lot of wire, and eyelets, and screws/washers and even those metal fasteners that students used ages ago to keep their pages together. I'm not even sure what they're called, I just know 'em when I see 'em at Staples!

And the question is, why aren't YOU working in metal these days?!

As much fun as I had playing around with metal for school I quickly realized that it isn't my thing. Too much technical stuff. I need to be able to work fast and you can't really do that with metal. It requires too much planning!

If we ever meet, we will have to have a paper fest with a little window for metal-ing. Working small (and with the aforementioned cold connections) makes the route from what you want to say to making it visual with the tin snips shorter than one may think.
