Eye Half Open

Last night, I reached the halfway mark with "Ol' Blue Eye." Woohoo! I plan on cutting more rings tonight like a maniac. I'd like to get the entire Eye -- frame and lighting included -- finished by next weekend at the latest. Much of the wire I'm using is silver-plated copper under the blues, so the color just shines and pops. If you've never experienced the movement and feel of a sheet of Euro 4-in-1, you're missing out. It's amazing that metal can be so graceful & beautiful and tough at the same time. That's the reason I've decided that the frame will have an open front and the maille itself will be suspended. It seemed a shame to lock it away behind glass. I can't stop poking my Eye!
