I couldn’t choose a better final assignment than a piece to honor my mother. She collects bells and to make my gift special it would be in silver, have beautiful form and have a decent sound. After practicing on copper and damaging a first silver plate, this task gave me 3 important lessons:
1.- Love can be a powerful driving force,
2.- Practice makes the master and
3.- Never heat silver too much
I am glad my mother and teachers are pleased with the result. And despite the troubles and hard work, or probably because of them, I am willing to make more bells.
