The medal for a Cosmic Love General is going in the Metal Shop in a little while -
a reward for valor and courage in the face of life :)
If you blow up the picture you can see texture underneath the leftmost swing bail: (it's applied in other places, too) I've done this once or twice before: applied silver dust with a brush and let it become part of the design:
sometimes when a design calls for a feeling of strength or grit, I like to take that literally ;)
This is a piece that packs a punch and I didn't want it to be 'sweet'.
It's for a warrior:
a woman who thrives and survives in the face of challenge with an incredible, grounded heart.
