The secret garden padlock locket necklace


“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world," he said wisely one day, "but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

This necklace is one of my proudest achievements. I longed to make a victorian style locket for along time, but I wanted a twist on it. I wanted it to be a padlock as well - to signify a secret tied to a person. This is the necklace I have dreamed of for years come to fruition. This necklace is a hingless locket - the chain of your necklace holds it shut - a rather genius invention by my sculptor!

Inside you can place any small memento you choose (about the thickness of a playing card) - an old picture, a butterfly wing, a note to yourself, or a prediction for the future. The necklace must be removed to open the locket - so only you can know what is inside.

For a small additional fee I can inset a butterfly wing inside - please message me for details before you purchase and I will make a custom listing for you.

-A note about oxidization, It is kind of like tie-dye, each oxidization is a little different from the other! It is a chemical reaction on the silver. Oxidization will fade over time and pieces can always be re-oxidized!

The pendant was designed by me, inspired by the forest. Sculpted by Hiroyuki Shambles in Japan, and cast by a local casting company here in Los Angeles, CA.

The pendant is oxidized sterling silver.
Specifically designed to be unisex.

Sterling silver has very minimal upkeep! Just wet with water and wipe with a soft cloth.
