Markings continue to interest me. In exploring a particular technique - soldering silver to copper and rolling it flat- I created these roller inlaid copper pieces. The resulting necklace elements, along with some beach stones, wrapped in waxed thread, were all attached to this necklace strung onto clay beads are from Mali.
