tada! A copper heart I hand cut from copper sheet, sterling silver banner soldered to the heart, and handmade sterling chain and clasp. I'm totally starting one for me tonight!

Thank you!
 I felt so stupid, I wanted to make one that said mom, but I'd made the banner too big, so my mind went blank and I decided to make this larger one, then of course I realized what I wanted mine to say at this size, a day too late! Anxious to see how much faster it goes when I know what I'm doing in regard to size etc!

How long do they take to make? I just think they are so cute, plus they can be customised as well Smiley

I plan to keep track of how long it takes tomorrow, I worked on it in-between other things over a few days, and I can't figure it out!
 Plus playing with the silver for the banner took awhile whereas now I think it'll be pretty quick, because I tried to make it before I made the heart, then had to resize it, mostly just lots of time re-heating the metal with the torch to anneal/soften it to bend it over and over, and soldering the tiny parts for the chain took the most time, but can easily be alleviated by using purchased chain, which I'm doing for mine tomorrow!
 I'll repost how long it takes tomorrow after I  time it!

Wow, I love the edgy design of the heart in the vintage tones. The chain is pretty great too.
