Heart brooch doodle/sketching

I posted last month about my Heart-a-Day Brooch Calendar idea.  
A portion of that is posted below. 
Tonight some brainstorming. 
fabric, leather, chain, beads, collage, piercings, forging, hinges, materials


I'll be returning this year to a long time idea of making 29 totally unique heart brooches/pins and building a display for them, something like a February Heart-a-Day advent calendar (including leap year) of one-of-a-kind wearable hearts.  

Part of my goal is to stretch creatively both in design and materials. Last year during Art-a-Day January I completed five pin/brooches.  Below is the first: steel construction strapping and sterling silver.  Wonderfully Steampunk in look and feel. 

I may end up making 42 in order to choose a favorite 29
