A Mended Heart


About this design:

Who says a broken heart can't be mended? I lost a sister a few years ago to heart problems- age 48! This was my way of trying to honor her and fix me at the same time! This piece now hangs in a shadowbox matted picture frame for all to see...and remember how precious life is!

Components:

Brass,copper,etchant,copper wire,swarovski crystals
