Each heart necklace is cast in sterling silver, the edges are polished to a high shine and the textured centre is accented with gold leaf. The sterling silver chain is darkened with black patina.
The heart measures 3/4" (2 cm) in diameter and the total length of the necklace is approximately 16.5 or 18.5 inches in length.
The Open Hearts are intended to be worn for ones self or for another, sharing with everyone who sees it, the reminder of love and openness, light, and compassion for each individual and the world. The coarse texture on one side of the heart represents all the experience, and scars of our hearts, yet we continue to keep space inside. The hearts have depth and shape elements representing all our experience and diversity, while striving for peace and unity.
