The Heart of the Matter (HOM) is my signature piece. This one is made with a specially selected beach stone carved to hold a lamp work bead reminiscent of the ocean designed in collaboration with another artist. Sterling silver wire keeps the bead in place and is attached to a Greek leather adjustable cord. The Greek cord adjusts from 16" to 25.". The pendant is approx. 1 1/2" long and 1 1/4" wide.
Heart of the Matter Pendant HOM 02
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.
