Modern Artifacts

I Heart HOU


Whether you are a rhinestone cowgirl or a big city-slicker, you can show your state pride every day with this classic minimal patinated turquoise Texas necklace.  Hand-cut and hand pierced patinated Texas state shape with a heart cut out over Houston. This necklace is suspended on an 18-inch 14K gold filled chain.

Known for her hammered gold textures and signature patina, Heather Wobbe of Modern Artifacts hand finishes each design creating a truly unique piece of jewelry each time.  She works with recycled 14K gold and gold filled materials, sterling silver, nu-gold, bronze, copper, and shibuich as well as ethically sourced and conflict free raw diamonds, fossils, geodes, stalactites, lapis lazuli, amethyst, rose quartz, white howlite, Italian red coral, and other stones.  Whether using a mirror-like polish, patina, a sandblaster, or 23K gold leaf, contrasting finishes define her work and give it the graphic quality which lends it its identity.

Made in Houston.
