A really cool project

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a pair of blue wire wrapped earrings HERE!

The other night I got out my torch, a sterling silver disc that I previously cut, and some scrap sterling silver wire. I cut a bunch of pieces all the same length and balled them (tutorial coming soon on balling wire). Then I soldered the balls onto my disc. I'm not really sure what I would do with this or how I would finish it. Make a pendant, add it to a bracelet, make another one for a pair of earrings, cut out the middle, dome it (although it would have been a good idea to do that first), hammer it, add a patina? The ideas are endless. What do you think I should do? What would you do with it?

(Oh, and I think I got a little too comfortable with my torch and stuck my arm right in the flame. And then left a bad smell because it decided to singe my arm hair. Yeah...DON'T DO THAT! I'm just glad I wasn't wearing long sleeves.)
