The Glass Chest necklace is a statement piece born from a poem by the artist Casey Lechner. It was a dream of mine, to translate these delicate written words into silver.
What if your chest was clear like glass
and we could watch all your feelings float past?
And what if your heart grew big like a tree
then people would see
how loving you’d be.
It is a beautiful way to describe that matters of the heart are meant to be revealed and to show your true self.
From the ribcage multiple hand forged poppies bloom, which are evanescent flowers. It is impossible to keep them because they whiter once picked and can only be loved from the place they root. A fiery red Hessonite garnet represents the beating heart of this design, spreading its warmth through the breaches of the chest.
This one of a kind pendant comes on a 50cm / 20 inch silver chain, which is adjustable in length.
