Textured Heart Necklace - Moody
Sterling silver square wire heart, textured fine silver backing bonded to 24k gold foil, patina added for a moody look. Chain is sterling silver dotted with mini hearts, 18" long.
Two simple sentences for a labor of love, square wire carefully shaped by hand and soldered. The textured fine silver is reclaimed scraps, melted into an ingot, rolled out to sheet again, then textured with an incredible texture plate purchased from a Veteran owned company. Soldered together, add the tube bail on the back, semi-finished, gold foil applied on an open kiln, final finishing, patina carefully painted on. Then mini hearts sawn from reclaimed sterling sheet, shaped and polished and hammer textured, joined with jump rings I fabricated myself.
This piece carries a bit of my heart too, from my heart and hands to you, wear it in love and good health!
