Solder hearts

Bumming around on pinterest this morning, I found a link to a tutorial for making hearts out of solder. It looked interesting and it works, although, I adapted it. I used my torch instead of the soldering iron.
I admit my hearts are definitely rustic, organic and definitely not beautiful, but it was fun to make them.

They are easy to texture and it's possible to stamp on them and I see them being used dangling from a bracelet. As usual, I made components rather than a whole (bracelet or necklace).
The tutorial can be found here.
And I apologize for the slightly fuzzy picture on the bottom.
