Unique Heart Brooch, Love Token and Wearable Accessory. 

Materials: These unique handmade heart brooches are made from 100% recycled pewter. Each design is completely unique as they are cast using cuttlefish bone. The brooch pin is mixed metal. The textured design various on each brooch as does the size as each mould is carved by hand. Lead and nickel free.

History: Cuttlefish bone casting is an ancient technique which was used in Mediterranean countries for centuries, it was even used commercially in the UK up to the 1950's and has now become a popular casting method for artisans and makers. 

Method: The cuttlefish bone is carefully sawn into two pieces vertically. David then carves his design into one side of the bone, he creates a funnel at the top and then secures both pieces back together with heat resistant wire. He heats the pewter and once molten he pours it into the mould. Allowing it to cool, he then finishes each piece with careful filing and polishing, before adding the brooch pin on the back.
