My Blog Soup Party partner, Amanda, made some very nice comments on her blog--http://www.amandamade.com/blog. She is a very talented artist herself! I adore what she sent me and am especially pleased that she took the time to make the focal and other brass components herself. I'm not sure how I'll use them yet, but I'm intrigued by the idea of combining the brass and copper in the same piece. I really think I can do it so that it works! I already have some ideas and plan to get started within the next couple of days.
