And in this case, that couldn't be more true. Except, instead of "devil", let's say "beauty". And instead of talking about it, let's just look at some pictures of how far we have come. Can you see some of your own favorite patterns appearing in the final product yet?

That copper color is the un-soldered foil. The silver blobs are solder melted through from above (or accidentally splashed on the glass (top center). These between-areas are going to all be smooth silver solder when I'm done with them!
Better than a handful of diamonds, these are nuggets from stemware!
This is where those nuggets come from.
Before and after, if you will.
Can you see the pattern in the cup I'm holding and where it correlates to the same pattern in the piece I'm indicating? Need a hint? Find the ribbon.
