I wanted the background to be a little mystical, so I chose a fabric that I purchased while on vacation with a good friend. My son gave me some of his bicycle gears. There was motorcycle chain collected from a business close by to my husbands work. The watch parts were in my stash and had been collected for quite some time. When I was close to being done I needed to think of how I would frame the piece. Once again, it was my son that suggested something like a cut foil frame. So that made me think of the Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrappers that were collected over Christmas. I tore them into pieces so that I would get an interesting reflection and glued them down to a panel that my husband had cut out for me.
I really like this piece and loved the process from start to finish.
