This Mechanical Heart Pendant and Steampunk Necklace are just some of the pieces I made for the Pheonix Fiesta Craft Fair at Cardiff City Hall. I just love Steampunk!
I made this using 14 gauge copper wire, so the central piece is quite solid and weighty. To create the antique patina I heated it with a blow torch until it was a glowing cherry red. The resulting patina is dark and chalky, with hints of warm orange.
