Weekly Challenge: Week 29 reliquary

14kp scrap, tie tack, sterling silver little guy (circa 1989?)

I decided to stay with the scrap "theme" and file a scrap of pink gold into a heart. I kept looking at this piece and the hole I had originally drilled went right through the heart of this dude. (cue THIS...aaaannd you're welcome! I've had it stuck in my head since I pulled this piece out of the scrap bin!)
I kept the figure as is by not filing it all nice and pretty. I oxidized it and then polished the heart.

I tend to love art even more when it's functional.

Thanks for the Bon Jovi - that hadn't occurred to me at all. I was thinking
