A deep belief in the power of heart-led fortitude guided Anita to follow her own heart to create the Heart Strength line. Inspired by her grandson’s challenges with congenital heart defects (CHD), Anita designed the Heart Strength series to raise awareness and funds for CHD research. Her campaign began in 2016, when she raised over $5000 to donate to The Children’s Heart Foundation in honor of her grandson Finn. To this day, she continues to donate a portion of proceeds from the sales of Heart Strength necklaces to this organization. Anita shares, “Connecting with others who need heart strength for whatever journey in their lives is truly my honor.”


This necklace features a solid silver heart pendant on a sterling silver bail ring and 30” 3mm stainless steel ball chain. The heart is patterned by hand with hammer and anvil, meaning that each pendant is one-of-a-kind. With time and wear, the pendant will oxidize to develop a unique aged patina. To restore original shine, polish with light steel wool or a jewelry cloth. 


-Pendant measures 1.75” long x 1" wide, chain 30” long
-Sterling silver, stainless steel chain

 

Inspired by her natural surroundings and attuned to the animating power of daydreaming, Anita Roelz is a metalsmith who creates fine yet rugged daily-wear jewelry for all people.

Her resonance with the elements of earth, air, fire, and water is reflected in her work, while her commitment to honoring the history within the tools of her trade becomes evident with her loving use of antique hammers and a 150-year old anvil. Her senses inform her process; colors and textures fuel her creative spark; and her connection with embodied earth wisdom inherent in the metals and precious gemstones guides her hand.

Working from her home studio on Montsweag Bay, all aspects of Anita’s metal smithing process are performed by hand - from hammering and texturing, sanding and shaping, to sculpting and polishing. Her creative process is an emanation of her life energy merging with that of the raw materials, together dancing to create novel forms that speak to their original nature, yet bridge the physical and spiritual experience.
