Way Of Life

Featuring a working compass encircled with sterling silver, Kevin and Deborah Healy's adventurous pendants serve as reminders that no matter how trodden or winding your path, it's the one you were meant to travel. Each delicate way-finder hangs around the neck from a sterling silver chain, inspiring repeat glances as the wearer recalls and creates the footfalls along their own journey. These two wayfarer's companions symbolize the spirit of adventure, and the hand-engraved inscriptions on the back--"Find your way" or "Follow your heart"--gently motivate the weary traveler to find the courage to carry on. Handmade in the USA.

Kevin and Deborah Healy

Kevin and Deborah have been making Kaleidoscopes since the early 1990's. The first Kaleidoscopes they remember were the cardboard toys passed among friends in some endless childhood summer under the willow trees between stickball games or tea parties. These eventually gave way to wearable works of art.

As jewelers Deborah and Kevin share a fascination, perhaps obsession, with the sparkling colors and facets of gems. When they began making jewelry scopes, their design found a new focus.

"The swirling colors and patterns of Kaleidoscopes have enabled us to add a new dimension to how our jewelry may be enjoyed. As artists, we feel fortunate to participate in the revelatory and peaceful world of Kaleidoscopes." collection

        I gave this to my daughter for her 6th grade graduation. With the meaning of always being able to find her way. She is also a avid hunter so it also has actual usable purpose to it. :o)

              I am so heartbroken that I lost this on a day at Strouds Run, in Athens OH.
              My parents got it for me for graduation and I will never forget the disappointment when I realized it was gone. Went back to look for it but no luck :(

                  This was NOT a quality product. The chain looked dull and not at all as pictured. The compass portion of the necklace was defective. Really a piece of junk. I will be returning this right away. So disappointed. It was a good concept but very poorly produced - not worthy of being on your site.

                      I love this necklace and wear it everyday, I'm assuming that is why the clasp on it broke :( I've been trying to find a replacement chain but with no luck.

                        I love this necklace! I wear it everyday and only take it off to shower because it should not get wet. I do not use it as an actual compass because I am not trained in real compass use, so I can't tell you if the compass works well or not. I love it, though the necklace is a little short for my taste but thats because I like them a smudge longer- no big deal though.

                          College graduation gift for my niece. I think it will be perfect. Much more meaningful than a check, and something she can enjoy for years to come.

                          Sometimes it takes a while to "Find your Way," but these sterling silver compass necklaces remind us that when you're lost it's important to "Follow you Heart." What do you love about these directional designs?

                          They look like perfect graduation gifts. But is there room for on the back to engrave someone's initials?
