Bicycle wheel art with colored glass inserted between spokes


Wanting to make the project as eco-friendly as possible, I decided to look for a used wheel, use only small pieces of scrap glass I was given by another artist, and older “expired” (oxidized) solder I had acquired for pennies on the dollar. The only new materials I used were flat/round and heart-shaped nuggets I had originally purchased for my fish tank and the copper foil, which needs to be pristine in order to accept the solder and create the strong bond between the metals (copper foil and tin/lead solder) needed for stability and safety.
