This locket ring with garnet follows the same concept as the locket I made previously; Precious beauty kept on the inside, away from harm, much like how people protect themselves from being hurt by creating a facade. I have pierced a pattern in the top lid, so that a slight hint of what is inside can be seen.
This sterling silver locket is a portrayal of how people are often miss-judged, and how there is so much beauty and character to be discovered hidden inside someone. What they seem on the outside is only the tip on the iceberg.
I have created an open section on the front of the locket as a ‘peep hole’ to what’s inside. Once the locket is opened, a pierced, oxidized door seperates the two sides, allowing something precious to be enclosed.
