In times past one of the fundamental goals of the alchemists was to transmute other elements into gold, more correctly termed ‘chrysopoeia’.
Today we know that transmutation from one element to another actually does occur within the nuclear reactors of stars in a process called nucleosynthesis. For larger elements more energy is required, like that in the stellar explosions of supernovas, where gold can be transformed into lead, but sadly not the other way around!
The quilt is the first made for this series - and of course, I had to use real gold.
