Piece of my Heart Pendants #37

Like the “Piece of the Ocean” pendants, these hearts are skillfully created by Bill Holden from local west coast materials such as lichen, moss, shells and beach pebbles. Bill then permanently adheres the miniature scenes with repurposed Canadian Pine, Maple, Oak or valuable Makassar Ebony, Ebony, Angel wood or Kingwood. The Pine allows for a light coloured background, the Kingwood for medium and the Ebony for dark depending on what kind of image Bill wants to achieve.

... each pendant is created with much thought. Besides the specific and scientific resin aspect, the fine wood is sanded to velvety softness and buffed to a high sheen and polished with wax for long-lasting beauty.
