Trinket #5 - Hearts and Minds

I'll confess - I've had much more fun bending wire lately than anyone should be allowed! I made a pair of heart earrings for my daughter the other day and was quite happy with the way they turned out. I decided to take that idea and expand it to make this bracelet to complete the set. Glad I spared you from looking at yet another pair of earrings today? I thought so.

My mind likes to wander while I'm creating, as I suppose it naturally should. While I was putting this piece together, I was very amused by the idea of how each of these little links, really not much by themselves, could connect to others and make something substantial. Is this another case of art reflecting life? If so, I'm cool with that.

This trinket is made from hammered silver wire and measures eight inches, including the handmade clasp.
