Edit - of sorts!

While I loved the way the Copper/Red Enamel/Rhodochrisite necklace came out, I was not entirely happy with the balance of the piece - especially where the size of the heart was concerned.  The other day, while making a "strong copper 'S' hook" for my sister, inspiration struck.  I twisted and smoothed and, VOILA, a heart.  I soldered it together, wrapped an enameled head pin around the center and added it to the necklace.  All in all a very successful re-work!

My friend and I are trying to torch enamel today. I'm so glad I found your blog.It has given me confidence. And I love the copper penny bracelet!

I love this! Great rework. Better than the original (even though that was great too)

Ok, there are so many things I love about this necklace. The red enamel is stunning, I adore the clasp, and am just drooling over the heart! Way to go!
