Description/Artist Notes: Vermeil is a type of gold finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.
The two layers of rectangles are attached at the french hooks only, allowing for movement. The vermeil rectangles are hammered by hand for texture and depth, creating a unique pattern.
