Bright Red Tinted Concrete Heart, Stainless Steel, Mirrored Glass Emebellishment by BootyHeart Jewelry

We’re very excited to introduce a new line of jewelry to the Mouse! BootyHeart Jewelry is the labor of love of David G. of Gilroy, California. His pieces are delicately crafted from surprising materials: concrete, stainless steel, and crushed glass. Through experimentation and plenty of trial and error he was able to create a product that is original, eye-catching, and beautiful! He often draws inspiration from nature.

The BootyHeart Story

“One day I decided I wanted to build a desk. A unique, durable, manly desk. In my search I came across some beautiful concrete tables and counters…I was amazed at how concrete could be tinted in so many shades and that with come clear or colored glass it looked like no other material out there. I experimented with shaping an end table with metal and filling it with concrete and discovered that the polished metal added to the overall appearance of the piece. That’s when I decided to miniaturize my effort and try my hand at making jewelry. My first attempts were big and I had a lot to figure out. It took some work and research to find the materials that worked for what I wanted to do. From the cement base to the aggregates it has truly been a labor of love. The final product is a non-toxic completely handmade miniature piece of wearable art!”

In His Other Life…
“I’m an electrician by trade…working with my hands comes naturally. I started as an apprentice then got certified and soon after became licensed in the trade. It was during the economic downfall that I got into creating with concrete. So, it has been a blessing in disguise…”
