I remember even as a little kid, I was always fascinated by lockets. They were so personal, each one unique. Housing a simple picture that made the person wearing it feel just a little more connected to a person in an image. I always imagined who I would include in my own locket- would I put my mother? My grandparents? Who would I want to carry with me to remind me of home? I never owned a locket, so the point was moot. Now that I’m much (much) older with kids of my own, I still think of that special piece of jewelry that symbolizes what I made. My own little family, 10 years in the making.
I was introduced to Origami Owl a few years ago and started building my own Living Locket. I hinted for weeks to my husband- THIS is what I want for Mother’s Day, Birthday, Christmas.. but hinting wasn’t enough. Finally Origami Owl decided to send me a personalize locket to check out for myself. In the medium size locket (a perfect size for a keychain) I was able to place a little reminder of everything I carry with me in my heart- a piece for my husband, 3 birth stones for each of my kids, a cross for a lost cousin who left us too soon. I keep this Living Locket on my key fob because it goes where I go. I often look at it and am instantly reminded of the love surrounding me.
This is what living lockets are all about. YOU. They can be personalized to your interests with a variety of sizes and individual charms. The amount of charms you place in the locket determines the size of your locket, which also comes in a variety of styles. I love the simplicity of my Origami Owl Living Locket. This Mother’s Day, consider a Living Locket from Origami Owl for that special mom in your life. They are a truly personalized gift that any mom would love.
