Open heart surgery is an incredible ordeal. I am in awe of the people (both young and old) who pull through it as well as the doctors and nurses who perform these surgeries and encourage their patients back to good health. This necklace celebrates their struggles.

I cut a heart out of copper (approx one inch), hammered it, added brass grommets, and sewed "sutures" with brass wire. The heart is hand stamped with the word "Hope."

I will hand stamp a name or a word of your choosing. Please let me know at checkout.

This pendant comes on an 18" copper chain (16" to 24" lengths are also available).

I particularly enjoy the organic properties of copper and love how copper will develop a deep, dark patina over time, depending on your skin chemistry. Let it age, or polish it with a jewelry cloth. (You can even polish it with ketchup!)

My turnaround time is listed in my shop announcement. I'm making this necklace especially for you.

According to the American Heart Association, some form of congenital heart disorder will be found in nine out of 1,000 births. I was inspired to create this necklace by several people I know, most especially William, the son of one of my co-workers. William was born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) called hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Read the amazing journey that little "Iron Will" has made on his family's blog. Especially read the oldest entries. I just can't say "amazing" too many times. Plus, he's such a cutie boy!
