About this piece.... Just for fun, I start with plated copper sheet and hand saw each profile, seeking to change each one slightly. Holes for the eyes and ribs are drilled, then ribs are fashioned from fine silver wire and soldered in place. Fine silver is quite soft, so if the ribs should bend, they can be straightened with a pair of eyebrow tweezers.
