When I was little, I got a locket as a gift. I can’t remember if it was from one of my sisters, or from my parents, or what, but I loved that thing. I remember searching to find photos with small enough faces that could be cut out and stuck into the locket, and also remember thinking how romantic it would be to have a picture of my husband in there when I was older.
All these years later, I have no clue where the locket went, but since then I’ve always had a love for lockets. So when Origami Owl offered to send me one, I jumped at the chance. Their lockets are much more modern than the old one that I had — they create “living lockets,” and they’re really cool. You can choose from different locket sizes, and they’re clear glass in the middle. They sell “plates” that can sit inside the locket (mine is engraved with “mama” as you can see in the photo above), and then they sell charms that just float around inside the locket. I got an “M” for my name, and a little sewing machine charm, but the medium size lockets can fit up to six charms inside of there. I think the locket without a plate, and just with a bunch of charms floating around in there would be such a pretty and simple look.
