These are fabulous! You are really aware of all the ways the silver can be manipulated. All I can say is - you are in for a lot of fun! I love the carved edges..it's a great texture and takes the leaf design up a notch into something a little more graphic. AND I had no idea the piece had been repaired until I read your description, so good job! By all means, add a patina...it will be like magic when you do. Congrats on a great start!
