Lotus Flower on Copper

About this design:

I like to add an asian influence to some of my pieces. I saw this pattern and knew I had to use it. I had a transparency made, ironed it on the copper,etched it, formed the "frame" and then soldered the frame and handmade copper balls. Added a patina and there you have it!
