Hand made using traditional methods. The heart was drawn freehand and cut from the silver using a piercing saw. This was followed by filing to remove the rough edges and sanding with several grades of abrasive papers to smooth the edges and remove scratches. Next it was heated to soften the metal before applying the texture by hammering and the u-shaped wire was soldered to the top before it was pickled to remove the fire scale caused by the blow torch. Finally lots of polishing to give its lovely sheen before attaching to its chain.
