Be Mine, Pink Dichroic Glass Heart

My last offering for this week. "Be Mine", another of my hand drawn and etched dichroic designs overlaid onto pastel pink opal glass. I chose to do something a bit different on this one. I normally wrap only with sterling silver or gold filled, this time I used copper. I've forgotten how much I love the color of copper. The wire I used in this is Artistic Wire. It has a thin coating that protects the metal. This coating also make the piece hypo-allergenic as no metal touches the skin. I really love how these hand drawn designs turned out and look forward to making more. I've found it challenging to take pictures of them that truly do them justice. They are just so awesome in person!
