A Tale of Two Hearts

The most recent issue of Art Jewelry Magazine contained a small teaser for the next issue, which will feature a simple wirework heart pin by Sharilyn Miller. I don't usually recreate any magazine projects, but I HAD to make this pin. And I had to make it for Christmas! As usual, I used the photo as a guide and made my own version with no further instruction.

I wanted to post these photos when I finished making the pin on the 24th, but didn't want to ruin the surprise just in case the intended recipient decided to read my blog on Christmas eve (Hi Mary!). I am sure I'll make another (or three or four) when the March issue comes out.

Oh , luv your version of the heart pin! You've got a great blog here , I've enjoyed reading about your adventures :).

Those computer freezes only seem to happen to me on Yahoo sites - very annoying , particularly when I've been hopping around a lot and have to backtrack to find the site again. Grr.

I actually much prefer your version of the heart - it's soo well done! The other one is a little TOO abstract, although in general I love her work too :)
