"Inspired by Victorian mourning lockets, each hand-crafted sterling silver locket holds a miniature diorama, such as dried lady bugs. Each locket also contains a tiny tea stained simple phrase. The locket is composed of two parts, the locket itself and the interior diorama casing that is closed off with a crystal plane of glass." available in store: "I THINK OF YOU", "MY LOVE", "FORGET ME NOT", "IN DREAMS WE PLAY"
"These were created as part of our 'memory' series which plays with ways to hold onto memory and keep loved ones close.The form used for these hammered silver bands was inspired from bird bands used in the act of migratory bird banding/mapping. Each band is inscribed with text."
“TO LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE LEFT BEHIND IS TO LIVE FOREVER” - oh, i do love this sentiment.
"IN THE END THE LOVE YOU TAKE IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE YOU MAKE" - wise words.
"Each of these embroidered patch pendants is made by hand, and is embellished with tassels. Inspired by traditional scapulars, each patch carries with it a phrase on the back side. Each pendant comes on a waxed cotton adjustable cord (slip knot slides to size).The patterns on all of our scapulars have been influenced by American quilts from the deep south, as well as east coast scrimshaw artifacts. Texts are self created as well as borrowed from famous songs and scrimshaw carved phrases that would have been created by love-sick sailors."
"By finding hidden strengths and beauty in otherwise disposable items, previously disregarded objects become fossilized in silver, allowing them to take on new lives as playful metaphors and precious objects." wishbone necklace, sterling silver
