My fascination with lockets began when I painted a tiny watercolour bee in a Victorian locket that had once belonged to my grandmother, and I loved wearing it so much that I began gathering a collection.
Most of my Victorian and Edwardian lockets are double sided, and each one is a frame for my artwork. Butterflies, bees, ladybirds and flowers from my garden are always an inspiration.
Every one I source has its own history, and there may be some small sign of its great age….. a part of its extraordinary long life story.
Each locket is unique, and I can make it extra personal by adding a special date or initials, or very tiny personal message in pen and ink to make it truly bespoke. My hanko (see About) also plays a part - it fits in beautifully, and is also my signature.
I include a long leather thong attached to the locket, but it can also be hung on your own chosen chain. Please remember to take off your locket when bathing, showering or swimming - it’s watercolour!
