Flying Heart Redux...

One of the first designs that I carved was a flying heart.  It was very popular.  I had it as a link with holes on either side of the wings and one hole at the tip of the heart for a dangle.  I wanted to clean it up a bit and change the proportions to fit within a circular pendant, instead of an elongated oval.  I thought that this would give it more versatility

So, I re-carved the mold and created this little flying heart.  I think it works.  The wings are stylized and not crazy detailed, but still read as wings.  The heart is a little crisper as well.

If I press this design out in bronze clay and fire it, the flat of the heart would make an excellent place to stamp letters.  I'm pleased with how it turned out!
