The heart shaped caper used for this piece of jewelry was from a bush foraged growing next to the overgrown well on the way to Villa Medici in Rome. Caper is native to Mediterranean countries and is frequently used in their cuisine. In ancient times it was believed it holds aphrodisiac properties, today it reminds us to live our life filled with passion, be it for life itself or the things we believe in.
