Metalwork Puffed Heart Pendant Necklace ~ Verdigris Copper & Brass w/Carnelian ~ City Hall Relics Collection #N0694 by Robin Taylor Delargy
A few years back I had the opportunity to play with a hydraulic press and chose the heart die. Instead of pressing it all the way through to punch out the shape, I pressed it only part way, resulting in a really nifty puffed heart in the center of a brass disc. I only made two of them, and this necklace is the result of the second. I cut it out, gave it a marvelous deep golden patina and layered it atop a piece of hammered copper from the original roof of the old Tacoma City Hall building, attaching the two with copper rivets. I do so love the contrast from mixing metals.

The center of the heart is adorned with an 8mm carnelian cabochon in a copper setting. The heart is suspended from deep golden-patina'd cut-link cable chain via carnelian beads, securely clasped with a copper plated brass swivel lobster claw. A copper extender chain is finished with a matching carnelian bead dangle. 26 to 30 inches long; if you'd like it shorter, please leave a note during checkout.

The heart focal measures about 1.75 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 10mm thick in the center of the carnelian.

Hand crafted in my home studio in Tacoma, WA. Signed on the back. Gift boxed.
