Lockets: The wardrobe staple!!
Lockets make the perfect gift or accessory for anyone and any wardrobe style:
Lockets can be worn by anyone. Lockets are becoming more and more popular: younger girls layering petite lockets with their other favorite pieces, while others opt for larger lockets for making a statement at the end of a long, chunky chain, ribbon, or cord. Celebrities fuel the trend by wearing trend-setting pieces for photo shoots with leading women’s magazines.

A beautiful, personalized locket is the perfect finishing touch to add sentiment to her look. Designers are not alone in their appreciation of the timeless, classic, yet modern appeal of lockets. Jennifer Aniston, Reba McEntire, and Sandra Bullock have been spotted adorning gorgeous lockets in recent months, and celebrity moms Katie Holmes, Halle Berry, and Britney Spears also have been seen wearing stylish, modern lockets in which they reportedly showcase cherished photos of their children.

Lockets make the perfect addition to your wedding !!
Lockets have become quite popular for weddings, for brides, mothers of brides, and bridesmaids alike, as well as guests. Many brides wear their lockets as necklaces in a subtle tribute to a loved one who is unable to attend the ceremony, as a way to honor the people who matter most to her on her special day. A bride may choose to place a photo of herself and her groom inside her locket for her wedding day, giving the piece a special significance that she will cherish for many years to come.

Modern brides, of course, are increasingly breaking tradition in many ways, and how they choose to wear their lockets is no exception. In a growing trend, today’s brides sometimes adorn their bouquets with a special locket, known as memory charms, as a way to create a unique look or to honor loved ones who are unable to be present on her wedding day.

To commemorate taking her new groom’s name, a bride may add initial lockets to her bouquet reflecting her new initials, or she may opt for initial lockets engraved with her own first initial accompanied by her groom’s first initial.

Among other wedding-day locket trends, lockets also are engraved with the couple’s wedding date, an important Bible verse, or some other memento of this special day that both bride and groom will treasure forever. A bride who chooses photo lockets to carry with her bouquet may showcase wedding photos inside her locket after the ceremony to provide the perfect finish to a personalized locket designed especially to tell her wedding day story long after it becomes a memory.

Lockets are an excellent choice as gifts for the family and friends who stood by a bride’s side as her bridesmaids on her wedding day, as well. Bridal parties often wear similar jewelry accents to create a consistent look for the wedding party.

**If you choose the added birthstone option you will receive the locket pictured and I will add a small birthstone to the top of the locket to dangle from the chain. Please leave your birthstone color in the memo to seller box when you check out.

** All sterling silver chains will have a lobster clasp
** All items arrive gift wrapped and ready for gift giving

You can choose faster USPS shipping when you check out, using Priority or Express mail. All of my pretties arrive gift wrapped and ready for gift giving.

About

Valley Girl's Handmade Jewelry Philosophy

I create all my handmade pieces to tell a unique personalized story. Jewelry is a story that represents bits and pieces of our own history. A special charm, or a little hand stamped initial become a little portrait of you. As you stroll through my little shop, I hope you are inspired to find the prefect piece that represents you or the lucky recipient of your gift. I hope the pieces you choose tell moments of your story and your life.

I think jewelry is an emotional personal way of describing oneself. Little trinkets, and charms added to my jewelry or lockets personalize each individual treasure . I think each piece has its own personality, weather its whimsical,woodland,classical or Victorian. Build your own collection, and make it your own by adding a little note or a picture. A little bouquet of dried flowers, a little four leaf clover, or a small memento inside each locket also make it special and unique.

When you choose your piece I hope you keep in mind favorite colors, birthstones, adornments. Choose a lovely bracelet or earrings that remind you of your favorite vacation or a great time you had. My jewelry also makes the prefect gift for brides or bridesmaids. You can pick your favorite charms, or match a wedding theme or colors.

I hope my pieces are something you cherish. A little piece of you and your life history. Please wear them with care, display them with pride, and tell your very own story.

The opportunity Etsy has given me has changed my life in so many ways. Being my own boss and setting my own hours has been wonderful for me and my busy family. I am so lucky to have found Etsy and be a part of their wonderful handmade community.

Additional policies and FAQs
**If you choose the added birthstone option you will receive the locket pictured and I will add a small birthstone to the top of the locket to dangle from the chain. Please leave your birthstone color in the memo to seller box when you check out.

All of my locket art is handmade by me. I prepare the lockets at the time of purchase. It takes 14 days to make the locket art and adhere it to the front of the locket. As you place you order, I then begin the preparation of the locket. There is a lot of drying time involved and the process has several steps which require drying time. Once the locket is finished I then design the chain and the beading. Then it is sent out to you with love :).
