I've made this secret compartment locket since 2014, and variations of it from way before that. I have had some amazing feedback for these and even a Buzzfeed feature once upon a time. But, the review I got a couple of days ago was the most moving of them all. Thank you Renee for sharing this, and for your photo of your locket.
"My 29 year old kid brother passed away last year and I have been looking at lockets. He had long hair so I wanted to carry a piece of him with me. Found this cute little gem of a necklace. Its perfect! It slides open and no one knows I have a lock of his hair around my neck. I love you Andrew! ❤ I think about you every day!"
Everything is a little crazy as we get close to Christmas. Reviews like this remind me why it's worth pushing on and why every single piece I make needs as much love and attention as I can muster!
