Extremely popular piece of jewelry that helped define the late 80’s in fashion trends.
The craze for these pendants of sexy soft hearts plated with matte gold over solid chunky brass. Tied on with a 20″ piece of waxed linen or thin black cord, the pendants trend exploded my world. I will do a blog on the pendant craze of the mid 80’s. Sparked by doing the premiere DKNY jewelry collection in 1987, where pendants = casual and young. Free and simple.
But then a spiritual energy was kindled where the symb0ls grew and expanded into a visual language of its own, Crosses, daggers, keys and locks, crescents and spirals, mythology for everyone..There is a photo showing the size comparison between the various hearts available now.
