This is Rust and Pearls
This is the meaning behind Rust and Pearls. Taking something that was created a long time ago and redesigning it with a personalized modern twist to be enjoyed for many more years to come.
This is a 4 sided vintage locket necklace I created last year. I found this one of a kind piece at a flea market in Philadelphia. I continually hunt through bins of stuff and tons of booths just to find the right pieces for you. When I find a unique element to design with I get really excited about who may end up with the final piece.
This piece belongs to a long time customer and friend, Catherine Gentry. She made this piece her own by adding notes with her children's handwriting in each frame. This is one of my favorite things to do with a vintage locket. Putting a personalized note enables you to carry a certain person, thought, or feeling with you all day.
