Handmade OOAK...Handforged "Cupid's Arrow" Bracelet

About this design:

I know Valentine's day is over, but LOVE is always here to stay...
I named this Lil Beauty "Cupid's Arrow" because we all know that Valentine's Day would not be complete without Cupid, the most recognized symbol of love.
I made the heart from 18ga. copper wire. I then took 14ga. Aluminum wire, and handforged the arrow. I used 20ga. copper wire and silver wire to wrap and adorn the heart and to add the arrow.
I also used 14ga. aluminum wire to make the toggles on the side of each heart to make the bracelet .
I used 6mm Swarovski Siam AB Red crystals, 4mm Swarovski "Marguerite" clear crystals and made individual links with 18ga. copper and silver wire. Handforged copper clasp.
Dangling pendant is 20ga. silver wire with the same crystals as in bracelet.
7" lg.
heart and dangle.. 2" lenth
