It all started with a tiny cottage in the California wine county.
Mom decided it was time to move back to her beloved San Francisco and with the help of my little brother, she built a tiny little gem of a cottage in the woods right in the heart of Sonoma wine country, surrounded by huge oak trees. And, for that, of course, she needed a name for the house along with a fabulous plaque to welcome all of us to her new home. So, we got to work at Baldur Studios!
When it came time for her to go, it occurred to me that she needed something she could take along with her and wear close to her heart. So, the idea for an oak leaf locket came to be. It's entirely handmade, out of bronze and includes a "page" inside that is an enameled piece of copper. It's a substantial piece.
