Repairs on a lampshade

This was one of the first lampshades I made. It was just a copper foil lamp, and had started to get wobbly.
I pulled it off and set it down, then a pane came half off, and while removing the one to fix, the other came off.
Fiddly, and more annoying than making the thing, because of having to get all the old solder and foil off. But patience won and finally it's fixed.
Just needs the patina to bring it the black, leady kind of colour of the rest.

You are really talented with hand-work - first to make the lampshade, and then to repair it?
Wow!
