The LOVE IS collection is a collaboration between me and my dear friend Haily Barwick.
A silversmith since 1990, Haily lovingly made the heart pendants featured in the collection by employing the same traditional methods she's used for 3 decades. A lover of the tiny imperfections that makes each piece unique, Haily traces and hand cuts each circle, stamps it with a heart, patinas, and hand polishes each piece. It is truly a labor of love.
I created a special handknotted string of crystals for each pendant. The crystals were chosen for their loving energies and were inspired by things I've come to know about love over the years.
This one features rose quartz to call up all that soft, trusting, open-hearted energy, accented with beautiful faceted smoky quartz beads to clear negativity and offer grounding. Charmed with a sterling silver heart pendant, approximately 18 inches long, and finished with a silver lobster clasp.
Love is ... trusting.
rose quartz: love + trust + opens the heart
smoky quartz: grounding + insight + clears negativity

Each piece is handcrafted with love to remind you of the magic within you + all around you.
