Her Story: Anniversary Memories

So it’s my 2nd wedding anniversary today and my honeyman and I are going out to dinner to celebrate. I’m piecing together the perfect story that represents the memories of our wedding day and I’d like to share it with you because I’m really loving this locket. Today, “her story” is my anniversary story.


I always start with gold when I want to tell the story of our wedding day. Our wedding colors were nay blue and gold so gold jewelry is perfect for my anniversary locket.

I started with a Large Gold Twist Living Locket with Aurora Borealis Swarovski crystals. This locket face is a vintage piece that was part of our 2017 Easter Collection. Don’t worry, we have a similar look available nowunity ceremony

I knew I would include the anchor charm because it represents the Bible verse that inspired the theme of the wedding “Love anchors the soul. – Hebrews 6:19. We  got married at a marina so the anchor is a perfect representation of the venue.  The vintage “I do” charm represents our vows. The wedding ring charm looks like my engagement ring (I love it).

I had to include the lemon wedge charm because it represents out unity ceremony. Side note: We used a lemon tree for our unity ceremony and each poured soil from our childhood homes into the pot. When we purchased our first home, the tree was planted in the front yard of our first home.

The infinity symbol is my favorite charm because it symbolizes the date, 08-08, double infinity day. I included the bouquet charm because I loved my wedding flowers.  The gold “Family” charm was included because we were truly surrounded by family that day. Finally, the gold champagne flutes represent a toast to our future. Of course, I had to add more sparkle so I sprinkled in some Aurora Borealis Stardust Crystals.

This locket was the perfect look for our anniversary celebration. I loved wearing it to dinner and it made me smile to think about the memories from that day.

Her Story: Origami Owl Birthday Wishes

her storyMy mom wanted to make a locket for her best friend’s birthday and truly capture her story in a special piece of Origami Owl® Jewelry. The two have been friends for over forty years. They met as young twenty-somethings at a bar while listening to their friend play in a band. They’ve stayed friends over the years and still talk on the phone to each other every night. They share a special connection and truly illustrate what best friendship looks like. Evynne has yet to create her story with an Origami Owl Living Locket® so my mom thought it would be special to make one for her.

Her Story

My mom selected a Medium Silver Hinged Living Locket® because Evynne does not like much “bling.” Then she began filling the locket with tiny charms that have meaning to Evynne. The gift started with a birthday cake charm and an August birthstone crystal by Swarovski®. These twp charms are perfect for commemorating birthday celebrations. Evynne is a divorced single mother so my mom included an October birthstone Swarovski crystal heart to represent her one and only daughter. birthday wishesThe two friends also love cookies and often share accounts of cookies they’ve recently experienced. My mom “had to have” the chocolate chip cookie charm in Evynne’s locket.  A special Star of David charm was included in the locket because the birthday girl is of the Jewish faith. In addition, my mom wanted a cat charm to represent Evynne’s beloved pet. Finally, we sprinkled some beautiful Aurora Borealis Stardust Crystals in the locket to add some extra “sparkle.” Everyone needs a little sparkle, right? The look was finished with a 24-26″ Silver Cube Chain (one of my favorites!). It was so perfect for Evynne!

My mom is so excited to give her this special locket.  She knows Evynne will absolutely love it! This locket isn’t just jewelry; this piece holds the stories of Evynne’s life and the friendship the two share. What a great way to capture birthday wishes!
