The symbol of the open heart is as timeless as it is cherished. Representing love in all of it’s various incarnations: romantic, family, friendship, passion for life… it reminds us to keep our hearts open and to give and receive love to the world around us. This pendant necklace is a beautiful and simple representation of a universal and powerful symbol.
I start with solid 12 gauge sterling silver which gets hammer formed, soldered and shaped completely by hand into a beautiful and unique open heart with it’s own rustic texture, no two are ever the same. After the hammer forming, it gets meticulously refined, filed and polished by hand, to ensure that it is beautiful and long lasting. Finally it is knotted onto a simple black leather cord which is adjustable, to complete the piece.
This necklace is made to order and each one is unique, the one in the photos is sold and yours will be created just for you.
-Hand formed solid sterling silver rustic heart pendant with hammer texture.
-Heart pendant measures 25mm (1″) across when measuring from the arch where the leather cord is knotted to the opposite flat side, and about 1.5mm thickness (please expect very slight variations as these are hand forged).
-Stamped on backside with .925 sterling stamp.
-1.8mm black leather adjustable cord with sliding knots completes the design. Cord adjusts from 16″ to 28″ total length.
-You can request a sterling silver clasp for the leather cord instead of adjustable sliding knots, see “sterling silver clasp option” box for details.
