Mezzuza completed

On Feb. 1, 2011 I posted 3 images of a mezzuza I was working on. Here are a few more images, showing the stages of work up to completion.

About half the goldwork done, showing my agate burnisher and a chisel.

Another image, a little further along, with the leather covered pad for holding the gold leaf, some cut leaf, and the ceramic palette with special glue.

Almost done. With brushes and fine cutting tools.

Complete. Without good tweezers, don't even think about doing this.

A gift for my son on his birthday. May he go from strength to strength.
