“Lockets have a secret message inside…that’s why they’re lockets. Once opened up, there’s a treasure inside. Ultimately it’s a truly human expression. We show on the outside what we want people to see, but keep on the inside only what we know. Lockets represent the deepest part of the human self…the outside and inside together.” – Lori, Dearest Mine

♥ About The Artist:
Lori Patton, the locketeer and “heart” behind Dearest Mine, lives in Valencia, California, with her sweet husband, three young sons, and one playful yellow Labrador Retriever. “For me, creating photo and art lockets goes beyond just the surface level of wanting to create unique jewelry with art and photos. For me, these tiny treasures are keys of inspiration and meaning that fuel my fire and ignite my passion for what I do.” - Lori
This lovely alphabet initial art image is printed on Kodak Endura's gorgeous metallic paper. The colors are exceptionally vivid and the image has a unique three-dimensional quality. The paper has a lovely pearlescent sheen and it's simply stunning in it's oval grande brass locket. The beautiful Alphabet initial letter art image is captured on an antique finish brass oval locket. The locket features a classic smooth finish around the border as well as on the backside.
The art image is sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine and the locket hangs on a brass rolo chain which is finished with a lobster clasp. Length-a generous 28 inches but can be shortened upon request!
Inside the locket, there are 2 empty recessed oval areas for you to mount your favorite pictures of your own choosing. These openings measure 38mm tall (1 1/2 inches)inch tall by 29mm wide. The outside diameter of the locket measures 2 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide.
This would make a fabulous gift for that special someone...even yourself!
My photo lockets are proudly made in the USA! Enjoy!
