Heart On My Sleeve Cuff Bracelet

I made this bracelet on and off all day.
I had a piece of sterling rod (2mmx4mm) that I had been looking at for months, and then I started sawing.
I sawed the rod down the middle on one side about 4" and down the other side about 2". I left 3.5" in the center uncut.

The cuff is hammered, and the heart center is soldered closed.
It still needs a bit of filing, sanding, and shaping, but it is almost there.
Here is the heart part.

Here is the coil part. This is they way it should be worn. Heart on the outside. It's also the most comfortable way to wear it.

Some more photos, so you can see all the nooks and crannies.
It is not finished yet. Keep that in mind.

Thanks for looking :)
