made 09-09-2011...it was just one of those real days thinking about all the people I know who have been affected by hiv and breast cancer, so this was an appropriate choice. I wrapped the bars at the back of the heart with red embroidery cotton to create this aids ribbon.
Names beginning with j... my brother Jeff, used to always get me to be the Indian when playing, Cowboys and Indians as a child. He always had the gun and I always got tied to a tree. I made this miniature gun as a memento to that time. The gun itself was first shaped in and cast with cuttle-fish and then I added the details, it clips onto the back of the heart forming the hidden brooch and memory.
