Day 6- Melting metal
Another repurposed scraps kind of day. Originally, I tried to separate these two shapes with silver tubes spacers, but in trying to ball the wire ends to connect the two, I melted the tubes and one of the holes on the tip of the silver piece. So, I improvised by cutting off the tip of the copper piece to match and soldering the ends together. I think it gives the piece a more organic look that's actually probably better than I had planned.
