Our Planet Locket
The Our Planet Locket was inspired by the giant suspended globe in the central lobby of our new Vancouver Convention Centre. I had many chances to stand below and gaze up at it when I was showing my work at the Circle Craft Summer show on the Plaza. It made me really think about where we all live.
Like that globe, my Locket is in the image of our planet earth. It is made of silver, opens along the tropics and clicks closed at Hawaii.
When you hold the little silver ball that represents our home, and feel its weight in your hands,
you cannot help but feel how precious this earth is for all of us.
Planet earth is our home, and it is for all of us to care for and share.
This locket is made of sterling silver and has a citrine set in a 14k bezel at it's closure. For the one I have just made inside there is a small heart made of sterling vermeil, clipped onto the chain are three tiny silver song birds - a wren, a chickadee and a nuthatch, if you would like a different mix of birds let me know. The earth locket is made of Sterling silver and comes on a 32" sterling silver loop chain, which can be clipped shorter. As I number
all the lockets within each series. If you choose this locket I will send you a list of which numbers from the series that are available. I then stamp it inside and record in my logbook where it the world it is heading off to.
