Mickey Rourke walked the red carpet at these past Academy Awards wearing his heart on his sleeve--or rather, around his neck. Loki, Rourke’s beloved Chihuahua, passed away just a short time before the awards show. Upon hearing the sad news, New York-based designer Betina Wassermann (who recently lost a furry companion herself) created the piece and sent it to the grieving actor.
To Wassermann’s surprise, she received a personal thank you from Rourke, who was evidently touched by the kind gesture. The pendant is made by soldering an image between two pieces of glass with a lead-free solder.
Wassermann makes pendants to order via her Etsy shop. They are double-sided, which allows the wearer to display two images. As of now, the jewelry designer makes all pieces herself by hand.
