Carissa Snedeker: Heart Study

Carissa Snedeker Heart Study 01-27-2015-1-XL
From front to back this photograph shows:

1. The necklace given to me by my daughter. With rare exception, I am never without it. She is my heart, and this necklace is my talisman.

2. The bump in my left breast bone caused by my enlarged heart from my congenital heart defect. A fact of life I live with every day.

3. The lump of my pacemaker resting on my left breast bone and which quietly allows me to live a life wherein I am not in danger passing out every time I pick up my walking pace.

  1. Life is so precious,you are an example of this,your necklace is a gentle reminder of the love of your daughter,these are what I call the stolen moments,these are the memories that we keep,the special love of someone. Thank you for your gentle reminder

  2. What a tender image. It is literally a “naked truth”, about how fragile life is. The story and role of the necklace touches me too (perhaps because I’m a jewellery maker), there is so much love in that little piece, that’s beautiful!
