Retro Rhinestone heart
This heart was inspired by the rhinestone jewelry my grandma used to wear. As a child, I used to love looking through her wooden jewelry box. It was loaded with bold, sparkling brooches and unique chokers. I made this piece from copper wire. I used a combination of coiling and weaving techniques, The center focal piece is an old button. It is surrounded with red, faceted, glass beads. I still haven't decided if I will make a choker or a brooch out of it.
