Specimen #01117, 9/29/2000

Wingspan: 5 inches (12.5 cm) outspread

Composition: 12 karat gold filled wire, blackened sterling silver wire, steel utility blades

Collection site: Techatticup Mine, Nevada

Comments: The blue of the wings is variable, depending on the light and angle. As with my other pieces, the color was achieved via careful torchwork. The only area of the wings untouched by the flame is the whitish stripe towards the tips.
