Lockhart Wrks.

A month or so ago, I was on the hunt for some matte gold or brass jewelry. Etsy is always my first stop for jewelry, so I tootled around in there a bit until I found Rebecca’s shop.

I actually bought this one because it was the most affordable option there, wondering if I’d get any use out of it at all. Color me surprised when it quickly became one of my favorite necklaces, and sparked an interest in finding and wearing longer pendants. READ MORE
