The Copper Accoutrements
Initially these were created as leaves.
One person mentioned their feather like quality and another that he liked the wings.
So take them as you will.
I fell in love with copper making these soundpod accessories and have worked it into several other pieces since. including my collage and under resin it makes me want to lick it.
