About this design:

Sweet? Tart? Art? :)

Another of my fold-formed hearts. I love this technique (from Kim St. Jean's book).

I hand formed the wire connectors, and flattened them for strength.

    Cindy, I have a question, did you get the coloring with torch or did you use a patina, I can only get a chestnut or pink on my copper very occasionally a purplish tinge!

    @Asia – while I did torch the copper to do the forming, I used a wire brush after to bring back the shine. The lavender color is Vintaj patina (amethyst).

    And thanks Deb & Mary!
