I am not sure if I have shared it here (I’ve been writing here for about 4 years) but I have told a few people my early fascination with lockets. And if you are reading this now, I share it with you too.
When I was little, money was something we did not have. What I did have was the SEARS catalog and various other store catalogs coming in the mail FOR FREE. Oh, I cherished these catalogs! I circled the things I wanted. Time spent with these catalogs were times of wishing and dreaming of what I could have some day. It was a time of happiness for little me.
As I grew up, went to college, got married and had my kids, I no longer had to resort to wishing and catalog shopping for things I wanted. I couldn’t just buy anything and everything (I’ve stayed frugal for the most part) but I am grateful for the life I have, brought on by the life I had. I give thanks to God in my mind, my heart and literally with my lips. Life was no longer tough like it was when I was a child. I live daily with a grateful heart because I have everything I need.
Fast forward decades later from that little girl on the rug and those catalogs… I was on my iMac in my heated home looking through Origami Owl’s website. The company had only been open a month. What was this? Lockets? Sparkly things?!!!
I was transported straight back to my childhood; those days I would catalog shop and wish I could have things – some were very basic things along with some wishes and wants.
Because catalog after catalog, whenever I came across them, I circled lockets. Yes, LOCKETS! I just loved how they looked. I loved how it could keep a person’s picture, a memory, or something small from someone special inside of it. Maybe, the musical Annie had something to do with it, but I always knew since I was a little girl, I wanted a locket too. Thinking back, I’ve wanted a locket WAY MORE than I wanted a wedding ring.
Here I am today, 4 1/2 years with Origami Owl. Not only do I get to have all the lockets I want, I get to share a bit of my childhood wishes with you and perhaps, help you grant someone’s wish too. With our new Legacy Collection added this Fall of 2016 after 4 1/2 years in existence, you have even more ways to carry your story, hold the things that matter to you, or gift something meaningful to those you love most.
I invite you to take a look at our new lockets. The rose gold one is called Vision of a Wish and the silver one is called The Legacy of Gratitude. The Vision of a Wish really struck me the moment I laid my eyes on it. It reminded me of another childhood memory: My 3rd grade teacher who was from England took the class to see The Faberge Eggs when it was on tour here in San Diego. I have never seen anything so beautiful. I didn’t know such beauty and sparkle existed. I was in awe of it all. And here, decades later, a locket looking like one of those magnificent eggs (and not costing a fortune)! I couldn’t believe it. Maybe I am overreacting, fueled by childhood nostalgia of the happiness lockets and bejeweled eggs have brought to bleak years I remember very little of. Whatever it is, I am glad these lockets are here today and I have the opportunity to not only have what I’ve always wanted, but to share them with you too. May you love these lockets like I do.
