No, it's all hand cut and formed sterling silver with brass watch gears.

Wow, it's impressing the way you managed to created the "ripped" effect.
It's really a wonderful pendant! :thumbsup:

Thank you! I will be making more of those.

It's all hand made (other than the watch gears). I think there's around 27 individual parts that went into making that piece.

What position did you get in the fair? What are the dimensions of the pendant? Bet you had fun making the cogs :P How did you end up doing the bolts? Blobs of metal or are they actual rivets or something else?

This piece actually didn't place, guess is just wasn't the judge's style. But I did receive over 10 commissions to make another one! I think it's 20mm x 20mm, ~ 6mm thick. Last time I checked, there's about 28 individual pieces that went into making it! The Cogs are real brass watch parts, no way in hell did I want to make those... lol! The rivets were actually pretty easy, they're just domed Head pins that are soldered into holes. :)

Could I commission you to make one more? I love the cracked heart, but I love the one with the gears even more.

Utinni Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
I am planning on making a couple more. Each heart has around 27 individual pieces, not including the chain. And it's all hand fabricated, other than the watch gears of course. So they take a little time to make. But I will let you know when I have some finished! Thank you for the interest!

It's an absolutely beautiful piece.
I really would appreciate your letting me know, because I will purchase one. I have an etsy account (as a buyer) under this same name, grayglow. Or I could give you my email to contact me. Whichever would be most convenient for you.

Thank you for getting back to me.
