For this simple square locket we used Goncalo Alves as the main wood. It features a Bocote slide out to place your picture or other secret treasure. When the locket is closed, only someone who knows its secret will realize there's something personal and special hidden away inside. We designed this locket to be suitable for both men and women, and to truly be a 'secret' compartment.

Our lockets make the perfect Mother's Day gift. It can be completely personalized. If you would like a custom picture inserted in the locket before we send it off let us know and we would be happy to accommodate you with an extra day or two of time to size the picture properly and get it inserted. (Thanks to our family members for making such perfect tiny little examples).

The locket measures approximately 1 3/8" (3.5 cm) x 1 3/8" (3.5 cm) x 1/2" (1.3 cm). The depression in the slide out is approximately 1/2" (1.3 cm) in diameter. Your picture or special message can be attached with a small amount of adhesive putty or rubber cement, so you can change it out at will. The pendant hangs from a 24" stainless steel snake chain with a lobster clasp. If you would prefer a leather cord, let us know and we would be happy to accommodate you.

Our finishing process starts with several stages of sanding. We then apply danish oil to each piece. This brings out the grain and color of the wood and helps protect the piece from moisture and wear. The piece is then waxed with a microcrystalline wax to protect this finish. We wax each piece several times, hand buffing it between each application.

Should your piece show signs of wear, buffing with an old t-shirt or other soft cloth should bring back the shiny glow it started with!
