Gorgeous Puffed Heart Pendant 02
To craft Embossed Copper Puffed Heart Pendant 02 I used a jeweller’s saw to cut out the heart shape. The piece of copper was then printed with this flower pattern using a Rolling Mill. Finally I gave it depth and the puffed look using my doming and dapping tools.
I made the copper heart from copper salvaged from an old copper tank. The metal was not smooth to start with and this has given the piece lovely texture gained by years of use in its previous life. The antique finish makes these textures stand out even more.
The copper heart pendant is 4.5 cm wide and 5 cm (2 inch) long. Chain is attached to the pendant and makes the finished necklace approximately 21 inches long. The chain is an anti tarnish copper coloured iron alloy. It is not a pure copper chain.
If you look at the Pendants section of my website you will see more Puffed Copper Heart Pendants listed.
I can make more of this style of pendants as party or wedding favours or for bridesmaid jewellery. The hearts can also be made into Keyrings or bag charms, which are popular gifts.
