"Who shall measure the heat and violence of the poet's heart when tangled in the body of a woman?" -Virginia Woolf.
Sterling silver sacred heart, cast immortal and oxidized to achieve my obsessive shade of gloomy gray/black. Cast from a french sacred heart ex-voto and one half of my reliquary locket. This sterling silver heart is a stunning testament to the poet's heart, aflame with language and magic. highly detailed and carved out in the back to lighten the weight.
Personally, sacred hearts are one of my favorite symbols. often shown over the hearts of religious icons to show the fever and pureness of spirit. To me, it's an oddness, to show the heart worn over the body, exposed, aflame, fragile. with this necklace, I'm not suggesting something pertaining to a specific religion but rather something spiritual, felt within and yet worn on the outside.
Surprisingly comfortable on the finger. Bold and somehow delicate at the same time.
Heart measures slight over 1 and 1/2 inches long. an inch wide at it's widest.
