Wirework inspired by wild roses

Delicate pale pink wild roses are in bloom in the hedgerows just now. Their time is all too brief and I always find myself wanting to capture their transient beauty in some small way. In this instance I decided to showcase just one pretty glass bead within a filigree tracery of sterling silver to create a wirework pendant.

The challenge was to include a heart shape to surround the bead and to make a bail that suspended it nicely from the rose pink thong. After some trial and error I managed a pleasing little heart shape in the centre of the wire weaving.
