I started to create this new piece almost 5 days ago. I knew this new journey will give me a lot of satisfaction since I draw my design.
My first drawing is just an idea of what I want to create. When I am in the process of making the piece and I start to see how it is developing, some changes are made to better fit my idea and what I want to transmit when I create my work.
My first idea in making my pure silver heart was to make it
flat and attach it with two rivets.
At the end I decided to make a dimensional silver heart with a flower, I made the flames of the heart with brass and on the back of the heart I hand formed a rose that will have a big place on my back design of the piece.
I am very happy with how the piece looks.
It really transmits my passion for what I do.
I always make something on the back of my pieces, I think the back is as important as the front. When I hand sculpted the rose on the back inside of my heart, I knew I will saw out a little window on my copper for the rose to show up.
