Erin “ELM” Harris | What Lies Within | Monday, February 3, 2020 | 9 am until 4:30 pm


 “What lies behind us and what lies before us are but small matters compared to what lies within.  And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen”  Ralph Waldo Emerson


Lockets by their very nature are captivating.  We’re drawn to the beauty on the outside and tantalized by the secrets held within

What you choose to tuck inside- memories in the form of a photo, dried flowers, a lock of hair or fur- are a clue to what you hold dear.  When you open your locket to someone, you are inviting them in.  You’re quite literally opening a small door.  It’s a very intimate and vulnerable gesture- allowing a glimpse into your heart.

This locket has a faceted quartz window which distorts the view of what’s inside, but provides  an alluring peak of what lies within!
