  • This pendant is a cast made from a REAL meiocardia vulgaris shell (a species of mussels)
  • The size of the pendant is just over 1 inch in diameter
  • Pendant is sustainably and ethically made from 100% recycled brass and gold or silver plated
  • This pendant has a large enough jump ring on it to fit through these Laura Elizabeth chains:
  • Carly
  • Dorothy
  • Marjory (pictured)
  • Jennifer Leigh

  • My mother, Claire and I co-designed this piece. As you likely know, I name my jewelry after women who inspire me. Together, my mom and I named this shell "Bernadette" after the Leonard Cohen and Jennifer Warnes song, "Song of Bernadette". Have you hear it? I dare you to listen to it and not cry.

  • Lyrics:"So many hearts I find, broke like yours and mineTorn by what we've done and can't undoI just want to hold you, come on let me hold youLike Bernadette would do"

  • The song refers to a young French girl in the mid-19th century who claimed to have seen the Virgin Mary on several occasions. I'm not a religious person, but this song hits me to my core. It felt appropriate since this song speaks of love that we name a heart-shaped shell after Bernadette.
