This pendant is hand-sewn together by the founder of Caps Brothers using Platinum 950 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.

I had originally purchased a different necklace from Caps Brothers back in Los Angeles years ago, and I had since passed that piece on to a dear friend as a token. Since then I had constantly thought about how much I loved that piece, so I sought out another, and went on a Journey to discover the one I would keep with me for the rest of my life. I found this website, and the rest of the pieces fell into place.
I was at a transition phase in my life, and I wanted something that represented my values, and my progress in life so far. The 20 sided compass for my travels leading me here, and the direction and purpose to move through time, through life, and through this world, and the Map of Humanity for my interactions with kindred spirits and loved ones as I traverse; combined together to help guide me forward--The meaning is powerful and with purpose, and it shall always be a reminder of those ideals.
I couldn't have asked for a better treasure to take along with me.
