Sliding Heart Brooch

I thought I would share the background to some pieces of jewellery which I make. I originally designed this brooch when my daughter went off to University in Aberdeen so the idea was very simple at the time and she would place the heart at the top of the wire when in Aberdeen and at the foot of the wire when at home! Sarah's brooch has a hammered effect and was oxidised Sterling silver with a 9ct gold heart. The version I make now has a very subtle texture with an 18ct gold heart and I now fabricate the fittings on the back of the brooch using Sterling silver.
