Busy day in the studio yesterday. I completed this new copper, glass and leather piece just in time for Christmas sales. (Drop me a note if you’re dying to have it before it hits the show! I’ll have it up on Etsy too in a week or so.)
It wasn’t without a little trepidation and breath-holding though as I built the copper rivet to hold the glass heart in place. Thankfully, it worked beautifully. It began the day before playing around with flat, disc-like glass shapes. And then continued yesterday forging the copper components once the idea found me.
All copper was then patinated and buffed and polished. Finishing touches were added to the back of the pendant to add a bit of character from behind.
I have this in my imagination….that some terribly romantic guy will be thrilled… (completely OVER the moon I tell you,) to find such a treasure to give to the love of his life…and tell her, “I Love You To The Moon and Back.” *sigh*
Yes, some part of me is completely sappy…and that’s OK.
