Catrina Skull - Monday's project

Catrina Skull Pendant by WinkArtisans

Wow, it was a crazy Monday, running around dropping off kids at camp, hubby sick with a summer cold at home and all I wanted to do was time for me to work on my Catrina pendant prototype.  Here's what I was able to accomplish today. 
My initial Catrina sketch inspired by Posada's original Catrina

Background in copper, hand-cut, hand-stamped, oxidized and sealed



It's starting to take shape. 
Added small copper flowers and it is almost done. 
Some minor work tomorrow and it will be finished.
