I remember as a kid that lockets seemed old fashioned. Something that old people held on to stuffed with old photos, locks of hair or some other momento.

Today, I am working on a locket for a friend. My prototype locket of copper and sterling with a swivel rivet hinge came out so well I was asked to make a sterling one for a 13 year old girl as a gift.

Inside the locket I will stamp her initials and the year- perhaps she’ll give it to her daughter someday.

Nothing old here anymore.
