Built from these ten fingers of sterling silver and copper, asymmetrical, light as damselflies, bright as dragonflies. The sterling lightly oxidized and brushed to a mellow glow while the copper, OH THE COPPER!, heavily patinated in a process that takes a full forty-eight hours to develop but results in the most gorgeous aged turquoise you've ever set sights on.
Forget the cup, I'M bubbling over!
I feel like I've just awoken from a hibernation, stretched my fingers wide and rolled my shoulders back to find a new set of wings, still wet, sprouting from my scapula. I'm hovering, testing out the air. And this grin, well it's wider than the seven seas combined.
