Hanging Air Plant Holder | Brass Teardrop

The Product:

Originating from the Swedish word for sky or heaven, himmel, the Himmeli are a traditional Finnish ornament, a mobile decoration that is traditionally made out of straw, or rather reeds in Finland. They are typically extremely ornate and are traditionally suspended above the dinner table during the holiday season. It is thought that the larger the Himmeli, the larger the rye crop will be in the coming year.

While you may not have a rye crop to worry about, these gorgeous Himmeli are an elegant year-round addition to any home or office. These geometric Himmeli ornaments can be placed on any surface, suspended from the ceiling to float in the breeze, utilized as a calming mobile, or embraced as an air plant holder.

Materials: brass, wire and leather cord
Dimensions: approximately h 7" w 5"
(17.8 x 12.7cm)

This Himmeli features a pentagon, or starfish base, with clean, strong lines. It will also naturally oxidize and darken as time passes, but can be polished to its original shine.

Sorry, air plant not included!

The Maker:

"My name is Samantha, but everyone calls me Sam.

This all began when my Mom and my Grandmother showed me how to crochet at the age of four. In between playing Laser Tag, building forts out of everything imaginable, and having Super Soaker fights with my brothers, I was toiling away crocheting doilies and scarves.

I had my first tool kit at five.
I was wood burning at age six (which in hindsight might not have been the safest thing).
I was soldering metals at eight. (Also, not very safe...)
I was screen-printing at eleven.
I was oil painting at twelve.
I was developing my own film at fourteen
I was hand pouring candles at fifteen.
A few friends and I had our own (fondly nicknamed) "sweatshop" at sixteen. We were pumping out fleece scarves, cosplay orders, and cotton and silk ties after school.
I was hand sewing stuffed animals for friends at twenty.
I taught myself how to knit at twenty-seven.
I learned how to throw pottery, pour ceramics, and slip pour at twenty-eight.

In college I gobbled up classes, like Leslie Knope to waffles. Whether they were art, law, politics, sociology, or psychology. I was writing summations, printmaking, and debating with the best of them. I was in and (absurdly) active in at least ten different campus organizations at any one time, all the while working and serving as Art Director for the campus satirical magazine: DUIN.

After taking a year after graduating from Drake University to teach English and American culture in Hebei Province in China, I decided that going to Law School was not the path for me.

All in all, it was 6 billion crayons, colored pencils, oil pastels, my highly coveted sewing machine (which you know, every college student dreams about for Christmas), plastic buckets filled to the brim with fabric remnants, a fascination with the saponification process, power tools, and just making things."

THREE HEARTS HOME IS DIFFERENT.

Most retailers are about consumption.  The more you buy, the more they make.  Three Hearts Home is about being conscious consumers...about knowing where the things in your home come from, and how they were made.  We are about buying fewer, low impact, artisan-made, heirloom quality goods instead of countless, unnecessary products with limited lifespans and no heart. We are about filling our lives with beauty and surrounding ourselves with art and craft, and by doing so, becoming connected to local and global communities of Makers.  

OUR COMMITMENT TO "LOVING THE EARTH"

Loving the Earth and operating in an environmentally responsible way is extremely important to us, and is a commitment we have made to our trusting customers.  Here are a few of the ways we honor that commitment:

  • Sourcing low impact, sustainable, and otherwise environmentally-friendly products:  When seeking out new makers and new products to offer at Three Hearts Home, we look for items made responsibly.  Many of our products are made with reclaimed or sustainable materials, and are created using low impact, environmentally friendly methods.   We love finding small-batch makers who use "slow" methods, as they are gentle on the environment in addition to being high quality and unique.
  • Ecofriendly Shipping Materials:  All of the materials Three Hearts Home uses to ship are made of recycled materials, or are recyclable themselves.  Our boxes are made of 100% post-consumer materials and are manufactured in the USA.  We reuse as much packing material that is used in shipments to us as possible, instead of discarding or sending it to be recycled.  For this reason, you may see several different types of packing material in your shipment. 
OUR COMMITMENT TO "LOVING THE MAKERS"

Three Hearts Home was founded by a family of Makers.  With this background, we know firsthand that handcrafted items have a quality and soul that mass produced items don't have.  We know that by buying from artisans we are not only sustaining traditional methods of art and craft, we are sustaining the artisans themselves.  We understand the importance of supporting Makers and honoring their expertise and artistry by paying fair wages.  The products we buy that are not American made are sourced from companies with a commitment to social responsibility.  See our Fair Trade collection for products made by global artisans working with companies that follow the principles of Fair Trade.

What is Fair Trade?

The World Fair Trade Organization outlines 10 principles of fair trade: 1) Creating opportunities for economically disadvantaged producers; 2) Transparency and accountability; 3) Fair trading practices; 4) Payment of a fair price; 5) Ensuring no child labor and forced labor;   6) Commitment to non discrimination, gender equity and women's economic empowerment, and freedom of association; 7) Ensuring good working conditions; 8) Providing capacity building; 9) Promoting fair trade; and 10) Respect for the environment. Most Fair Trade importing/producing organizations are members of or certified by one of a number of national and international Fair Trade Federations.

My product looks a little different than the photo. Is that normal?

It can be! Most of our merchandise is handcrafted, making each piece unique. Slight variations in size, color, form and finish are expected in handcrafted items, and add to the individuality of each piece. That being said we make every effort to ensure the products we ship are as close to the description and photographs as possible. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Yes! Our Brick and Mortar location is on Main Street in Somerville, NJ. We share a space with our sister company, Platinum Designs, a high end kitchen and bath design firm. You will see signage for both companies at our location at 87 W. Main Street, Somerville, NJ 08876.
