After seeing a copper cuff somebody created out of thick gauge wire, it reminded me of some of the methods I played with in blacksmithing. I incorporated those into the design of the original Hammered Hearts. Gives the points at the bottom and separating the globes at the top a little more definition.
Gave the points on the 2nd one a little bit of a curl to see how it would look.
Whether they are better than the original versions or not is up to the individual. I have things I like about both.
