All Hands On Deck

The Hopi hand originally had a coiled snake in the palm.  I used my own hand for the model, and I may play around with the whole spiral symbol instead of the snake. Either one lends itself to inlay, and underlay.  I think the trick this week will be how to make everything by Thursday night.
If I put a copper back on the hand after I cut out the spiral, it will look good even if I don't get around to inlaying it.  So the plan for today is to solder all the feathers, cut out the coil, and finish up the Hopewell symbol.  If I can get that done, I will be happy.  If it goes faster than I anticipate, then I may be able to finish up the wave bracelets.  They need lots of they are on the back burner for now.
