How they're made
The heart shapes are individually cut from sheet iron using a plasma cutter. They are then taken to the forge and heated until glowing red hot. Hammer blows are used to shape the edge of the heart making each one unique, the subtle differences brought about by hand forged work.
I then use my signature punch to mark each heart discretely on the back- see if you can find it!
Whilst still warm, I use my vintage letter punches to individually stamp each letter or number of your message onto the heart - immortalising your quote in Iron!
A hole is drilled in the top of the heart, ready to accept the 'Faux' leather cord of your choice
The next stage is to clean up the heart, this takes patience but the result is a shiny metallic finish which really grabs your attention. The edges of the heart are wire brushed to ensure there are no sharp edges.
I then apply several coats of wax to the heart to form a protective and attractive patina.
Finally the coloured cord is threaded through the hole, ready for you to hang at home.

I only use natural products to treat the iron. All items are treated with either Beeswax or 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. I recommend that you occasionally treat the iron with a beeswax or similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the iron looking tip top. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the iron then over time, and if there is significant moisture in the air, rust spots may begin to appear. if this does happen gently remove the rust with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention the ironwork will last for centuries!

I do not engrave!!!
Due to the fact that each letter is individually stamped by hand, text may not always perfectly align. I'm not a machine, but I do have a highly trained eye! I'm sure you appreciate that this is the real beauty of hand made work!
