Have you heard of open glass lockets, or living lockets? They typically are filled with small flat charms to symbolize the things you love but I wanted to try something different. The necklace has a strong magnetic closure so items can easily be changed out.
The packaging the locked arrived in was sweet.
I have always been fond of lockets, so when I was browsing the personalized gift items from UncommonGoods, I saw this fillable open glass locket and was intrigued. Think of all the things you could put in it – a little sand and small seashells from the beach, a small flower from your favorite field… My mind was swirling with ideas for it – items different than small charms that bounce around and something everyone could see without having to open the locket. I Googled ideas and read some put a piece of their wedding dress and flowers from their bouquet – good idea if I had known about this years ago! I decided not to go with my dad’s suggestion of a bug (very funny dad), and text my girlfriend Kate for help.
“Liberty London fabric?” she text back.
Winner winner chicken dinner.
I ironed on interface fabric to make the very delicate Liberty London fabric a bit more study, then cut out a circle.
Then I went through family photos and later found myself sobbing hysterically on the living room floor over how much I miss my parents, being small, and California. I found a cute shot of my little brother and my parents when we were in Hawaii. Don’t ask me where I was, probably standing next to my grandma who was taking the photo. I figured the photo was perfect, if I had me in it I’d probably cry every time I looked at the photo – I’m in one of those highly sentimental family moods as of lately.
I love the modernness and simplicity of it. What a sweet gift too – if you’re looking for a unique selection of modern anniversary gifts, visit the site’s products which is sorted by year.
