|Vintage Silver Heart Charm- Side A|
I just made this one of a kind, long necklace using a heart I just love. I don't know what it's made of, but it's worn into it's age and has all sorts of textures and subtle colors to it. Each side is different and beautiful.

I love that it's tattered and worn- It looks like it's been through some things, and it's only gotten more charming because of it! I love the "Side B" the best- I like how part of the silver has actually worn away and the pinkish clay or whatever it is, has come to the surface.
I used purple-ish pink-ish freshwater pearl beads because I thought their color was such a great compliment to the antique silver look of this heart. It's a long necklace, so I wire wrapped a lot of those pearls. I think they ended up sort of looking like old rosary beads.
The back half of the necklace is a repurposed silver chunky necklace I found at an estate sale recently. It's got some texture to it as well, so it seemed the perfect compliment to the heart charm.
