ITEM – This locket is ready to ship. It is an antique brass book containing a picture and quote from Albert Einstein. It says, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." It comes with a magnetic clasp on an 18 inch chain.

NOTE - These lockets are a ‘special order’ item. You may use the people and quotes I have selected, or you may choose your own writer/quote. If you choose your own quote, it may only be up to 56 characters long not including spaces and punctuation. And, I need to be able to find an image of the artist/writer. The lockets will ship one to two weeks after purchase is made. NOTE - All of the necklaces come with an 18 inch chain and magnetic clasp unless otherwise noted. If you would like a different chain length or clasp style (magnetic or lobster claw), please ‘convo’ me or leave a message with your purchase. The magnetic clasps utilize rare earth magnets so they do not come apart easily while you are wearing them. I use them all the time and love them and have never had any problems.

DESIGN - My jewelry is a reflection of my love for nature and my interest in art and culture. I like an eclectic blend of down to earth and completely theatrical. Because of this you’ll find a variety of pieces that range from very organic shapes to Victorian era opulence. Everything I make is something I would wear myself and I specialize in interesting Czech fire polished and Picasso finished glass beads as well as antiqued and blackened brass findings.

MATERIALS - All of the findings are lead, cadmium, and nickel free. The blackened brass findings are finished with Renaissance Wax to protect the fine finish.
