This locket was a gift for my friend who had just lost her husband. Her favourite colour is purple. I put in a photo of her husband along with the chosen message. It was absolutely perfect!!! Beautifully and professionally made and presented - very elegant. And arrived quickly. Well worth every cent! I have no complaints whatsoever!!!

Telling Stories through Handmade Lockets
All of the creations in my shop are personally crafted by me in my home office and humble studio near Indianapolis, Indiana. My Etsy shop is a one person operation. I design, make, photograph, list, pack and ship every item here. My style is simple and classic with a dash of fun & personality. Your order is handled by me with TLC from start to finish.
I appreciate my customers and the opportunity to express myself creatively. I love making quote lockets and wearable art jewelry - incorporating antiqued metals, resins, and meaningful sentiments into my pieces in a tedious and time-intensive but rewarding creating process that indulges my meticulous nature. My philosophy is simple: I want to make jewelry I'm proud of - jewelry that means something. Lockets are a wonderful way to express yourself - whether it's a favorite quote or a special saying, a message locket serves as a unique adornment and a portable little token for your heartfelt treasures - like a tiny window into the soul. I want each locket I make to be a small piece of artwork as special as you are. I hope to speak to your heart and add a little bit of joy and positivity to the world.
I’m an artsy, sentimental character who delights in designing and crafting, and am a self taught locket artist. I've spent the past several years sourcing the best quality materials, developing my technique and refining my skills. My creating process for each locket is an intricate, multi-step creative adventure to me - a visionary journey resulting in a medley of vintage inspired and polished chic. Whether you're a traditionalist or looking for something a little more quirky & whimsical, I want your locket to be extraordinary - a cherished souvenir sprinkled with love. I'm very excited to be able to offer you the personalized service and dedicated craftsmanship I've worked so diligently to achieve.
I start with a brass pendant blank and get to work adding special sentiments. Once I have sized and fitted the details of the locket, I use a high quality jeweler's resin to professionally preserve and seal it in a curing oven to a hard, crystal clear, high gloss glass-like finish. Once the compounds have cured and cooled, your locket is ready to be made into a necklace. I suspend it from a sturdy closed-link chain on an attractive pendant bail - I don't use pre-made chains - I make my own chains constructed with high quality soldered links I hand cut from commercial spools, and use strong rings and a lobster clasp so you can be sure your necklace is secure. The production process takes 2-3 days start to finish. My lockets are pre-made and always ready to go. When your locket order is ready, I carefully wrap it in attractive gift packaging, which comes complimentary with every purchase, and prepare your order for shipment. Once your completed order has shipped, you receive an email with your tracking information letting you know your new treasure is on its way.
I've been featured in Etsy Fashion and have shipped my jewelry all over the world. It's exhilarating to think things I've made with my hands are travelling to places I'll never go and people I'll never meet - it's like in some small way I get to share in their story, all from my modest little corner of the heartland. So far I've sold pieces for a music video in Los Angeles, a Broadway show in New York City and a television show on ABC. I'm constantly amazed at the exciting opportunities my business has created. I enjoy being part of the Etsy community, and my business allows me to stay connected with the world. I really love what I do and I look forward to sharing my jewelry with you!

I love the idea that my jewelry is being given as a birthday gift for someone special, or filling their stocking at Christmas time. Or a locket will be worn to remember a loved one. I keep this in mind when I'm making the piece and packing the order.
