I am a H*U*G*E collector of beach stones that resemble the shape of the beautiful heart. This necklace is inspired by that shape. It all started on a fall day in 2006 just a few months after my mom had lost her battle to ALS a.k.a. Lou Gerigs Disease. She and I had many heartfelt talks about how I would go on after she passed away and the one thing she would tell me was that she would "Always be in my Heart" what a statement! She may not be here phyiscally but her spirit is with me always and with every heart that I find I always have an unbelieve feeling that she is standing right next to me. It's a connection that pulls me back together when I feel so broken and it gives me hope to know that one day her and I will embrace again...........I love you mom!

The heart is hand shaped and textured out of PMC. The added wire detail is one of my signature looks which is also made of PMC. I hand forged the hook from sterling silver and added faceted bali beads which are strung on steel wire for a unique accent. Very beachy inspired!

If you would like the sterling silver necklace made to a certain length please convo me and I would be happy to adjust it. ***Please note that this could affect the price.

Handmade jewelry is UNIQUE!! No two are alike............consider slight variation of patterns and texture alignment due to the handmade nature of my jewelry. Slight imperfections are truly characteristic of forging, texturing and shaping of precious metals and PMC (Precious Metal Clay).

All of my designs are individually handmade one creation at a time. I work with a variety of metals including: sterling silver, fine silver (PMC), copper, brass, bronze & steel. My passion is creating a great piece of jewelry to wear! Close attention is given to each one of my creations! Many hours go into designing and fabricating a piece including the final testing of my prototype - the wear ability. Please notify me of any defects and I will be happy to work on correcting the problem.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is clay that consists of microscopic particles of precious metal suspended in a mix of organic binder and water. After creating the artwork from (PMC) it is then dried, sanded, and fired. The binder and water are burned off during the firing process and the metal particles fuse together. The piece is then burnished, oxidized to highlight the details, buffed, and sealed with a jewelry wax to keep the patina from wearing off. The end result is a beautiful piece that is fine silver (.999).

FYI- There is a difference between fine silver and sterling silver. Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver and sterling silver is 92.5% silver with 7.5% usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same. Fine silver is more tarnish resistant then sterling silver.
