About

It is a special gift, especially for the one you love or for yourself. There is no greater force than love, and the Shadow Heart speaks to this love in a charming way. Love is invisible, but felt even in the absence of another's embrace. It's an eternal link, binding two hearts. Unseen, but ever present. As you or a loved one wears the Shadow Heart, you feel the love of its shadow.

The best time to see The Shadow heart.

Facing the sun on a sunny day, between the hours of 11am and 2pm, will create the perfect heart silhouette. It can also been seen when standing under a bright light. 

The Origin of the Shadow heart

I have designed products all over the world including Japan, Korea, China, UK and the USA. As a designer, I have a dream to create objects that evoke emotion. Jewelry is the is perfect subject to make that dream come true. For me, the challenge of designing jewelry was not just creating the shape, but portraying it’s meaning in a unique way. The concept of the Shadow Heart is to cast the silhouette of a heart from an object, making it a better representation of love. It is present and felt, but not always seen.

Risks and challenges

There aren't many critical risks in the project, however the challenge is the timing of shipment. I set up the estimated delivery as Jan 2014, but would like to ship before Christmas 2013. The holiday season is quickly approaching, so I will start creating pieces once I see the potential of meeting the funding goal. This will hopefully help get you the Shadow heart before Christmas 2013.
