” Have a Heart” it’s Serendipity:
Hello friends and lovers of Jewelry!
So happy to be spending time in my studio again; Much too long of an absence! Everyone is well – all is well! Hoping you are the same. We have been so busy, designing, cutting stones, planning for upcoming shows and we finally got to add some new work to kathleenbarris.com!
As a matter of fact, today we put up some of my Argentium Silver Hearts. My Argentium Silver hearts are available in approximately three general sizes:
Smallish, Larger and Double. Hmmm, does that seem vague?
Only because it is, as no two of my hearts are ever the same! No matter how many I make, they always look different, due to the nature of both the design and the fusing process. Serendipity is often at play here!
I make each heart individually, forming it with pliers and of course, my hands. Tarnish resistant, Argentium Silver is so fine, I am able to fuse the metal to itself without the use of solder, as can be done with Fine Silver. I then shape each heart a bit more with my hands and forge the key areas with hammers, until I am satisfied with the shape. I then make sure each piece gets a really sparkly shine!
My hearts are the perfect gift for so many occasions, and for “just because…”for others or yourself!
Smallish Heart $35 Larger Heart $40 Double Heart $40
The “Smallish Heart”, approximately ½ inch – 1 inch, comes on a delicate 1mm, 18” Sterling Silver ball chain.
The “Larger Heart” is approximately 1 ½- two inches, and the Double Heart”, is approximately 1 ½ inches; each heart comes on the same silver ball chain, in a 20” length.
