Torch-ured Hearts, etc.

Please visit our friends, Lori Plyler of Studio Waterstone and Andrew Thornton of The Writings of Andrew Thornton at Art Saves ... doing good through the power of art. This site is hosted by Jenny Doh, author of the book, "Art Saves."  Jenny is the former Editor-In-Chief of Stampington Publications, which includes one of our favorites, Belle Armoire Jewelry!


With Valentine's Day approaching so fast, we thought we'd have a little fun with our "Torch-ured Hearts," which Chris, one of the PWF Team, so aptly named.  These hearts are run through the rolling mill to create the most delicate little flower texture. They are treated to a "flame patina" and sterling silver is fused in place. They also have a nice varnish on them to prevent changes in the color.  They measure 1.5" h x 1" w.  You can find them at Painting with Fire Artwear's etsy shop for $12 each.
