Of all the pieces in the collection, I learned the most while designing this locket. Like...
You can’t force a thing to work when it’s not supposed to. I spent a year trying to figure out how to make the locket open with a key. While I didn't go down without a fight, I've got a pile of rejected designs that say it just wasn't in the stars.
A thing must reveal itself on its own terms. Once I stopped telling it what I wanted it to be, it told me what it actually was.
Being vulnerable is hard when you've got a guard up. I built up the jagged fortress, leaving the fortune only barely discernible. I hammered the exterior to give it a more complex texture. And I introduced the spiked edges to make it appear far more threatening than it actually is. Keep out. (But, please, come in.)
Comes on a dainty 30" chain.

||Made-to-order, individually hand-casted, solid 14K Gold lockets, measuring 2.75" x .55" (from bottom to top of bail). Paired with a 30" 14K Gold rolo chain.
||A hammered texture on the outside is met by granular hand-pebbling on the inside.
||Our lockets come with a fortune you choose or write on your own, plus a few extras in a mini fortune envelope. You can swap out our fortune with one you've been holding onto any time.
||We spent almost two years designing our stacked corrugated cardboard gift boxes so that opening the box is just as much a part of the experience as opening the locket itself.
