I did a bit more forming and it is ready to be cut.
Cut, filed and sanded, drilled and soldered.
This is where I am at right now. The pieces are still separate. I have not yet drilled the holes to attach the silver and I have not made the pin back. After I do those things I will finish sanding the aluminum and anodize it.
I really liked the drawing in my sketch book, but looking at the mostly finished piece I don't like it so much. I think it's the holes in the silver, they looked much better on paper. Oh well. I will finish the piece and see how it looks. I might like it more once the aluminum is anodized. I am thinking I will dye it green, but I have not decided yet.
