OK, I decided on a method to hang this monster. Hubby, being an engineer, was able to make a rig that allowed him to drill holes at some odd angle into flat stock. He drilled, he sanded, he polished & it looked OK. We took it to be engraved & they guy said he'd send it out to be polished by a local high end jeweler and Surprised!!!! I didn't know aluminum could be so mirror like!!! Surprised Surprised

Sorry for the poor picture. The sun is down & the house lights are just not right.

This is just the top plate. There is a second one that will go at the bottom.


http://1skygodess.deviantart.com/art/Finishing-the-inlay-105624447 for more info. Am hanging the 16g 1/4" inlay to the plates with 16g5/16" rings. It seems to give it a little break between the plates & the inlay.
