Designing the Mother’s Heart necklace
I am very pleased with the Mother’s Heart pendant. The jewelry piece lays flat against the chest, perfectly displaying an Africa garnet or Brazilian amethyst. The finished piece designed for winners of the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® writing contest bears the image and mirror image of the Arms of Love® trademark. The center gemstone is set in three prongs. During the casting process, I was concerned that the slight shrinkage would make the unique three-pronged head too small for the center gemstone, but it turned out perfect. The necklace is pleasing to the eye with the gentle swirls that fill the negative space, is light and open, and allows maximum light to flow through the gemstone.
