My Heart is Ticking

I love this heart necklace and may not be able to give it up.  Sometimes I make a piece and just cannot part with it.  I made this a while back along with about 12 others.  All the hearts turned out differently and one even had a compass.  Talk about finding your heart, it had a compass to help you find the way.  I hope it worked for the person who bought it. 
      I made this piece by cutting out a piece of copper with my jewelers saw and then aging the copper to look old.  I then took E6000 and glued all the pieces on one at a time.  It took about and hour to glue the watch parts onto each piece because trying to get all the parts to fit just right was a difficult process.  My son (Jordan) and I have been making some new pieces that I decided to call Broken Hearted.  He has been busy cutting lines and etching the metal to make the hearts look broken.  Some of the hearts have stiches and have been repaired.  I hope everyone enjoys these new pieces.  Watch for an upcoming post for the hearts.  In the meantime, please post your comments.
