Recycled Nine Patch

I had read about annealing metal and wanted to try it. I cut up several coke cans and held the metal over a candle flame outside (bad fumes). The aluminum became smoky and gold. When you heat metal evidently it goes through a molecular change and it becomes softer. So I took an old ballpoint pen that no longer wrote and drew on the metal. I poked holes down the sides so I could sew it. Using wire and beads I wove the metal squares with the quilted squares that I had sewn jump rings onto. 11” x 11” 1999
