This is a pewter pendant of a "Captured Heart". The Captured Heart embraces the heart from all sides and holds it within. The pendant comes with an adjustable, slip knot corded necklace. Tribal pendants were originally worn to identify which tribe or people one belonged to. Over time, pendants were formed to indicate traits such as strength, power, wisdom, a hunter and so on. Not only was a pendant worn to show these traits were possessed, but also that the wearer would gain those characteristics. Much like a talisman or a amulet, tribal pendants would aid in gaining the traits the pendant indicated.
