~~*~~ bleeding heart necklace ~~*~~
A flower for my heart
That finds no song;
Purer than rhyme,
Fragrance may climb,
Petal upon petal,
More innocent than art:
A flower for my heart.
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh

an antique rendering of dicentra {or bleeding heart}, is captured in bronze.

i created this design a couple of years ago, requested by a wonderful tundra dear customer. the flower is from an antique botanical illustration.
the reverse side has a vintage lace pattern- see last photo.
the bronze pendant is a composition of recycled copper + a tiny amount of tin. i added a light patina, and a preservation wax.
a natural red ruby wrapped in sterling silver wire is suspended in the window.
the chain is oxidized sterling silver, and closes with a hand forged s hook clasp.

the pendant measures approx. 2" in length, 1" in width.
the chain is 17" in total length {not including the pendant}.

thank you for visiting!
