Photographs are emotional, not logical. Nobody has to understand why you love it, why it tells the story of who someone was, someone is, what a person means to you. We’ve grabbed photos from long ago that we forgot about and been stopped in our tracks. Grabbed by the emotion. We’ve wondered how in the […]
Every locket lays a little differently than the next, each lovely in their own way.
Some of the best business advice we’ve ever received is that if you’re not a little embarrassed about your work when you launch, you’ve waited too long. This is totally different than putting
Kids know what feels important to you if you let them. They know that lockets are special, that they’re made with love and bought thoughtfully. They’re comforted by the symbolism and tangibility of holding something close just like we are. And if we’re really honest, they do love getting lockets, just like us.
Last spring I started to wonder if most kids die before their parents. Have you ever carried this worry? Is this rational? Is this something all parents worry about or just the ones who have minds that spin a lot? No way could I voice it, feeling superstitious about the consequences of welcoming in The […]
The first time I heard about fresh starts was while watching “The Other Guys” with Will Ferrell (so funny) and Mark Wahlberg (so hot). IT’S HILARIOUS! There’s a scene where they ask each other for fresh starts, and it’s so funny to me. The next day my husband did something or said something or who […]
Have we ever told you about our Theory of Never? It’s proven
Life gets settled, routine, maybe even complacent. And it’s not bad, maybe it’s even a relief to have that security and comfort. But sometimes we become The Walking Dead.
When we were kids we knew our Dad was good for a couple of things: Treats, car rides, and trips to the cabin. In his words, he spent our childhood working and then fixing all the stuff we all broke every day. He’s not wrong.
Our Grandma Lillian used to always say the world is the worst its ever been, but I don’t agree. Information just travels faster. Wider. We know more of all the bad things, and quite frankly, it’s not like the news is hyper-focusing on all of the good things. They do a little, you can catch […]
Last September we took a trip abroad for our lockets and ended up in the worst typhoon on record in Hong Kong. Despite being almost right on the coast, we were fine and it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. But there was no going outside for about 24 hours without being windswept down the […]
First of all, what is life? Second of all, the new Evelyn Locket is here! Back to that first thing tho – do you ever have days where you’re just like whaaaaaaaat is life? How do I do it all? Keep it up? Float? Breathe? Love? Lean away from nuisance and annoyance and disturbance and […]
Hey, so here’s something people still never talk about enough: Mental wellness. And I don’t think it’s just because of embarrassment or shame or privacy. It’s because we don’t always realize we’re unwell until we’re better, or worse yet, until we’re really unwell. My mind couldn’t rest. My nervous system was on overdrive. I was […]
We’ve each got our favorite lockets. Amy’s is the The Little Gold Circle and mine is a tug-of-war between The Gold Bangle and The Gold Heart Locket. I love all things gold, goes well with me red hair (wink). But what we love and what the masses love aren’t always the same thing. And why […]
Let’s cut the crap and tell you straight away that we’re asking for 17 seconds of your time (the most precious of all things – time). But seriously it only takes 17 seconds. GO VOTE HERE! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Here’s the scoop – we had two colleagues encourage us to chase this […]
One of my yoga teachers calls a pose and then often says “Don’t miss it!” if we’re dragging. And she’s right. The pose is happening now. Get going. Earlier this month I spent time on the beach in the Dominican Republic. There was a big international community there, lots of Europeans and Canadians, Americans too. […]
We grew up in the 80s and 90s but didn’t have MTV and if we wanted a pair of Girbaud’s we had to buy them ourselves. We’re generally not in many “target market” categories and we’re more likely to splurge on too many things at a thrift store than Nordstroms. But we’re thoughtful with our […]
This is my daughter, Penny Evelyn. She’s a rare bird. Flighty and creative and asks really, really interesting questions (“Do snow tires have snowflakes on them? How will the airplane know to find us here? Did our neighbors go to hAmsterdam to get a hamster?”) I call her my slingshot. She pushes me so far […]
I became an auntie before I became a mother. I spent so much time looking at pictures of my nieces and nephews, talking about them, thinking about them, spoiling them, being a really damn good auntie. Then I had my own kids, and much like having a dog before becoming a parent, I had less […]
It’s funny how you don’t know what you don’t know, right? And until you’ve had a formative experience, one that kind of shakes up your world view (for better or worse) you remain rooted in what you don’t know. Amy moved back to Minnesota from Brooklyn, NY, for many reasons, and one of them was […]
It’s no secret that your stories are what keep us racing back to the studio every day to make more lockets, work harder, spend time with who you are and who you love and who means most to you. We only share your stories when you give us permission while ordering, which means a lot […]
