Heart of the Matter (HOM) with Flamework Glass Beads are made with a specially selected beach stone carved to hold a hand forged glass bead. Sterling silver wire keeps the bead in place and is attached to a Greek leather adjustable cord. The piece is a colllaboration between myself and a flamework artisit who actually "paints" the bead with glass on both sides. The pendants are approximately 1 3/4" long and 1 1/2" wide. The Greek cord adjusts from 16" to 25."
HOM with Flamework Glass Bead
While not fragile, the stone which is the foundation of each Heart of the Matter pendant has been weakened by the large central hole. This pendant should be handled with care and put on over a carpeted floor. If dropped on a hard surface it may break. There is no way to repair the pendant if this happens and it can't be exchanged for a new one.
