Design Overview:

Call it protected love, or maybe caged love - I guess it depends on your perception of this pendant. Either way, Love is locked in, And yes, this is riddled in allegory.

In order for this Pendant to work in Silver or Gold, I created two versions. This is the version made specifically for Precious Metal Materials (Silver, Brass, Gold Plated).

This design has a personal connection to me (more than the fact that I designed it), as my mother has strongly urged this makes it to her house for Christmas. It’s too early for predictions….

Links to each of the versions are below.

Production Information:

I purchased this pendant in Premium Silver and Gold Plated Brass as gifts for my Wife and Mother. Both Pendants look amazing. I was stressing over the Heart on the inside of the Cage and the thickness of the wires. I've made a few changes in the thickness of the wires to accommodate more polishing and this version does not have the smaller inside heart cut-out.

We're working on better pictures of these pendants and should have something uploaded soon.

Product Designer:

This pendant was designed by me, Darren Hartenstine. Website:
