Obviously, people know me for my tree of life pendants, but lately, I've been on a heart kick. So I've been making one-off heart pendants out of wire instead. I freeform the shape, then hammer the crap out of them to temper, texture and harden the wire. Next I embellish each piece with various wire wrapped gemstones.


This one is a tarnish-resistant solid copper with spring green peridot (August birthstone) rondelles wrapped around the edge, with a matching peridot teardrop dangle. I added a detailed Celtic-knot inspired bail and finished it on a 20" chain.


This handcrafted wire wrap necklace is also made from hand hammered, textured copper wire shaped into a heart and accented with rich, dark red garnet gemstones and a red siam Swarovski crystal 3D heart dangle. It features a large spiral and hangs on a matching rose gold, bright copper chain.


This heart pendant is made from tarnish-resistant silver plated wire which is hand formed into a heart and then accented with an ombre of nearly clear through pale violet purple amethyst rondelles and a color-changing Swarovski crystal twisted cube.

You can see larger versions here in my blog: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/blog/2015/02/new-wire-wrapped-heart-pendants/

As always, feedback appreciated! Grin

They all look great but I have a favorite: the red one because of the shapes you put inside. There seems to be a "flow" in it that is very pleasing to the eyes.
