The image is of 25 cornflakes drawn by my friend David (http://galletly.blogspot.com/2009/05/25-corn-flakes.html) I'm trying to stay as true to the original image as possible - but the oxidization seems to pretty much come off when dipped in silver dip so there's still time yet to change it.

In the end they will be an edition of 25 charms, little silver flakes of corn. What i'm finding is they move too far away from being an illustration of something and more into being a pattern on silver without the line, but I do really like the whiter lines - I guess I'd need to soak the silver in citric acid for a bit to get them back.

I like the contrast of the black lines. I suspected you would separate them eventually. Cool.

cornflakes are genius. silverflakes are better.
