The analogy of eight ounces:one cup::head:heart expresses the idea of balance or equivalence between the head and the heart; the two are the same, it is the unit of measurement that is different. The pendant is silver-plated solid brass with resin to protect the paper insert from wear and weather, and it's paired with a deep blue-purple hand-dyed crinkled silk ribbon.

Cost: $32.00 USD

Length: necklace - up to 32"


  • hand-dyed silk ribbon
  • silver plate brass 1" pendant with resin

Care & cleaning: Remove pendant from ribbon and hand wash silk ribbon with mild detergent. Clean the pendant with a damp washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The silk ribbon and pendant are robust and should survive any treatment from young hands. As with all jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

The variable length of the ribbon means the necklace can be worn short or long for maximum versatility; it can also be wrapped around the wrist for a terrific bohemian look bracelet.
