This geeky <3 necklace, available in the Maker Shed, depicts an ASCII heart, as seen in countless email and text messages: <3! The pieces are laser-cut in Sterling silver, then hand-soldered to silver tubes that hang from the 20″ curb chain. The necklace has a high-shine finish and is treated to reduce tarnishing. The pendant measures 1.5″ square, and the two pieces dangle freely with a silver bead between them. Made with love and lasers in NYC by our own Becky Stern!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.

    For $130, I think I’ll make my own. It’s not really in the maker spirit to buy it anyways.

        Thanks so much. The project in my head now is building a wingback chair, but I’d like to look into metalwork soon. Have a great day!
