Here is the same heart with the patina added, and the raised areas buffed to a high shine, ready to be strung on a chain and worn proudly!

This is the pre-finishing stage of the heart, fresh from the final solder of the jump ring, and scrubbed. The patination is the next step, and you will see how it takes on dimension during that final stage.

The stitching of of the broken heart, one of the final few stages in the fabrication of one of my Tortured Hearts. some have a patch over wound, some have stitches. They can be created out of Sterling Silver, or 14K Gold, each brings a different touch and appeal.

Next stage of the heart hammering the rivets. I use a series of stakes as my surface for the heart depending on the application, an array of hammers ranging from a non-marring forming hammers, to tiny riveting hammers.

This is one of the next stages of the heart I posted about recently. I normally solder a "QC" (quality control) circle onto the back of all my work. It contains a quality stamp of the type(s) of metal used in the piece, and my makers mark. In the process of unpacking and getting the studio set up, I realized that @[577432844:2048:Esther Eve] in Texas was in possession of my stamps! So, had to make due here with my engraver for the time being.

This is one of the earlier stages of a recent heart I had the joy of creating recently. This is after imparting a pattern on the surface through roll-printing, piercing the break, and drilling the rivet and accent holes.
