I’ve never made any jewelry before, and was curious as to what I might come up with. I started playing around with the shape of a heart, and then there was a “big bang” and out came this piece. I’m now very excited by this design, even though I had no idea where I was heading when I started working on it! ;-)
I like this design, because I think that I was able to break through the stereotypical representation of a heart and present it with a new edge. I also like it conceptually. In the sense that I’ve been interested in exploring the idea of what is perhaps the seed of a human being, or in another words what is at the heart of the heart.
So the way that I’ve been envisioning this piece, is that it would hold within it another object, like a pearl, stone or a bead. There is a hole at the top of this piece, where you can put through a “head pin” and use it as either a pendant or a keychain, or any other way that you can come up with. Enjoy!
