Jewelry is so much more special when you have some sort of memory tied to it, or if it has been customized to fit your personality. I have always loved the idea of a locket, and being able to add a memento that you will cherish forever. I was immediately drawn to the Living Lockets by Origami Owl, as it is a unique take on the traditional locket. The Living Locket can be customized with charms of your choosing to tell YOUR story, and you can change out the charms and the chains as often as you want! I was so excited to create my own living locket by first picking out my chain and locket base, then adding in charms that remind me of the most special people in my life.
I chose the Rose Gold Sentiments Convertible Chain for several reasons. Number one – I am obsessed with anything and everything rose gold! Number two – I couldn’t decide on a chain length. This particular chain was the perfect choice because I can wear it longer (36″) or convert it to 18″ in just seconds. I love the filigree details on the chain, and it goes so perfectly with the Sentiments Rose Gold Twist Living Locket Face and Base.
The locket base can hold several charms, and this is where the piece really comes to life. I chose the two charms that remind me of the things I love most in the world.
The silver claddagh charm reminds me of my husband. When we first started dating (I was 16, he was 18), he gave me a claddagh ring that he bought during a trip to Ireland. He told himself he was going to wait and give it to the girl he was going to marry, and I was that girl. I have cherished that ring more than anything (even more than my wedding ring), and now I can carry a version of it with me in my locket. I don’t wear the actual ring because I am so afraid I’ll lose it!
The silver dog bone charm reminds me of my two pups, Tupac and Angus. They are the closest thing to children we have, and they have brought so much joy into our lives. Yes, they can be stubborn at times, but I love them more than anything!
Another fun element you can add to the living locket is a Moodology Mood Disc. Just drop some ‘Bad Day Be Gone’ essential oil on top of the disc and place it in the locket base. The soothing scent really helps me relax when I’m feeling stressed, and it’s just fun to have a necklace that smells as lovely as it looks!
With the holidays coming up, I am always looking for unique gifts for those closest to me. I think the Origami Owl Living Locket would be an amazing and thoughtful gift for any mother, grandmother, sister, or friend. You could pick out a few charms that you think they would like, and they can always add others as time goes on. It would definitely be a piece to cherish forever!
