I have many hours in this piece - and I’m very happy with the finished piece. Many of the items I make have an underlying theme of duality. Black/white, day/night, nature/nurture - I’m especially interested the last one because I’m adopted. I wanted it to look like the crystals are being pushed like a sparkling hydraulic pump moving through the brass heart. The crystals also remind me of coal and diamonds - very different yet both carbon. It is a large statement piece for a steampunk costume or an intriguing inclusion on contemporary fashion.
So it’s seen I’ve put it on a short length of vintage brass woven cord at just under choker level. I can alter the length - just let me know. US$185 + $7 shipping in my Etsy store here.
