Another repousse Heart to Heart Pendant. I've had dried skeleton leaves for several years now and finally used one in the rolling mill with a piece of Brass. I repoussed the heart, framed it with twisted copper and brass wire and added a wire wrapped bail. The patina adds a soft warm glow. I cut my pattern out of metal today for earrings so that's my project for tomorrow. Not getting as much done in the workshop as I was hoping to but I am making some progress. Too many distractions in the studio and I'm drooling over what can be done with a hydraulic press. They are just so darn expensive, expecially with the current exchange rate right now.
