need oxygen!

Diana, a school mate, back in the day
I had so much fun playing with fire in jewelry school. I liked to watch things change shape and form and meld into something else. It's not like I just set anything on fire, I used fire for good, not evil. We made bracelets out of pennies that we printed before 1980, as they were pure copper, and I thought it was so cool to see the color of the pennies change, and to watch them get warm and flatten, as the solder flowed between them. When it gets cooler here, I'll take my tanks and pennies outside and make some more. I should have my oxygen tank filled by then...
