This pendant is hand-sewn together by the founder of Caps Brothers using sterling silver thread – a technique invented by and exclusive to Caps Brothers. The included chain is tested multiple times for durability and is soldered into an endless loop which eliminates the need for a clasp.
Through years of innovative exploration, Caps Brothers has created a metal sewing technique unique from any other jewelry in the world. Multiple layers of metal are sewn together creating an unmistakable exposed-stitch design. The result is a remarkably rare expression with exceptional beauty and texture.
The gear on the front of the pendant represents navigation and brotherhood. The 20 points on the gear also indicate universal travel.
The map side of the pendant is part of a baby's footprint taken the day of birth. This map represents travel and unity amongst all people on Earth. It is also an expression of new life, freedom, and biological form.

Walk don’t run to a purchase here from the metal magic alchemist Mr Caps. Pieces have a certain something that is not quantifiable with words. You have to see, wear, experience to appreciate.
The compass is a work of art with many intricate details throughout - from the silver braiding around the pendant, to the gold waves weaved onto the gear. The map on the back ties in perfectly with the concept and provides personal meaning to me. The chain is durable and the length is just right (I’m 5’11”).
