This hand forged brass heart is a perfect decoration for Valentines, or any time of year. It would make a wonderful gift for someone special or as a treat for yourself. Each heart is handcrafted by upcycling brass offcuts using traditional metal smithing techniques.


The brass has been cut and filed, drilled and deburred, then forged (shaped using heat and compression), and finished. The process involves annealing to re-soften the metal and keep it workable. This has the side effect of creating really lovely surface patination. This particular heart has been polished around the edges to create a contrasting shiney texture and the patination is still visible in the middle which adds to its rustic charm. 


Each heart is completely unique so the one in the picture is the one you will recieve. If you have a particular design you would like to have made, customised text, or a different metal in mind, please do contact me to discuss and I will do my very best to accomodate your ideas.
