I created a heart design out of copper clay some time ago, after I left my bad marriage.
I was living on my own for literally the first time in my life and I'd found some good friends and created a support network for myself. I was beginning to heal and with that, I was finding a new voice in my art/jewelry making.
"My Broken Heart Mended" is a hand cut and textured copper clay heart featuring a "tear" design and sterling silver wire stitches. It has been patinaed with a hand held torch and allowed to oxidize. Here is the one i made for myself:
Apparently it spoke to some people, because I've made it six more times; mostly necklaces, but once a bracelet and another time a brooch pin.
Here is a gallery of the others:
