Heart in a Box


I've been waiting to share this.
You see, it was a wedding gift commission and
I believe the bride reads my blog on occasion.

Now, the wedding has come and gone.
I'm free to share these photos of the piece
that I created for the
lovely couple.

Hand fabricated nickel silver domed heart
approximately 9x6 inches.

Hammered in wood depressions to create
the hollowness.
Planished on a metal stake
to even out the surface.
Left intentionally marred and discolored.


The bride used the paisley paper
in her wedding invitations.
Her clever sister sent some extras
sheets to me.


Key hole allows a glimpse to a
vintage skeleton key mounted behind
the heart.

Nickel silver rivets and a roller print escutcheon
add to the vintage impression.


Personalized with the bride and groom's names
and the date.
