Hearts hearts hearts

Guess what I got for Christmas ..... ?

Finally had time to play with it :)

 I had some small left overs from 0.5 mm and 1 mm silver sheeting.... cute little hearts. I want to make some earrings out of them.

What about some nice textured brass hearts ?

Those have jumped right into my jewelry box. I could not resist ;)

A wide hammered silver cuff with a cut out heart.
This is the first part of a new made to order jewelry set.
The idea was coutesy of my hubby. Thank you so much.

New square twisted copper cuff

I tried something different with my square wire yesterday. I really like the outcome.

After annealing I hammered the edges of the wire with my riveting hammer,
annealed again, then twisted the wire, another annealing, formed and filed it.

What do you think?
