I just noticed a wonderful little native necklace, all made by hand by Pippit, the designer of Giftbearer , contemporary tribal style jewellery
Here is what she says about the piece:
This necklace is from my Hollowform Broken Hearts (TM) line.
The strand is 20" long, and the heart centerpiece including fringe is 2 3/4" long.
These symbolize regeneration in the face of adversity.
The broken heart has a dangle (in this case a pearl and coral bead) inside like a seed growing or egg hatching in the void, springing forth new life. In these pieces there are always an odd number of dangles at the bottom symbolizing that extra option you didn't know existed. They have an amulet-like feel about them.
In this one there are gorgeously carved bone beads (the quality of which I have never been able to find again after my supplier stopped being able to obtain them), Turquoise, Aquamarine, and Coral, and sterling spacers in-between.
Bali sterling silver hooks in the front which fasten on either side of the heart make it easy to put on or take off.
If you're really looking for something special with deeper meaning I'm sure you will be more than satisfied. Although the heart component is casted from a mold I made, each of these necklaces is one-of-a-kind.
I have been told that people have been deeply affected by them and that they spoke to them on a deep level.
Anyone you give this to as a gift will treasure this piece and will definitely know that you took special care to pick out something they'd love.
This wonderful creation is available for sale on etsy
