A beautiful, French antique heart pendant, with a mistletoe motif. Most of us associate mistletoe with the holidays, and stealing a kiss underneath. While this is certainly one meaning of mistletoe, there’s actually more symbolism to this plant. During the time this pendant was made, WWI was going on, and mistletoe was associated with good luck. Since France recognizes the plant as a good luck symbol, they incorporated it not only in their Art Nouveau jewelry pieces and art, but in postcards to celebrate the New Year (swipe for an example). In this way, mistletoe was often used to wish people a lucky and successful New Year! For this very special piece, which I hope will bring the wearer good luck, I’ve incorporated colors found in the French New Years card. Freshwater pearls, rainbow moonstone, aquamarine and pink topaz have been wire wrapped using 14kt gold filled wire to create this one of a kind chain.
