Angel Behold V - Assemblage

One last post for the month of Feb.! This month has flown by and tomorrow is Ash Wednesday already. Lent is upon us and much reflection and prayer to be done! Oh Yeah! Fish Fries every Friday until Easter!
This assemblage piece was a lot of fun in experimenting with aging metals. I did find out that if you leave some metals in a solution of ammonia too long, the metal becomes brittle. So beware of exposure time.
I was inspired by Deryn Mentock's wrapped links and became hooked making them, so I have used one in this assemblage piece. I also LOVE her use of religious charms, medals, rosaries and crosses in some of her work! She is quite a jewelry designer with a unique style!!
