With You: Reinventing The Locket

$42,950

You asked, we listened! Today, we added seven new lockets to our rewards, including coordinating necklace/bracelet versions of our popular Roxie and Beatrice lockets. Scroll to the bottom to see them all!

We all have people who have shaped our lives, whose voices are present even in their absence, who we carry in our hearts.

To honor these people, we are introducing With You. A collection of lockets designed with a modern vintage look and feel, each piece embraces the beautiful sentiment and tradition associated with lockets. Used to carry a photo, love note or even a lock of hair, every locket holds its own secrets and stories.

After losing my father to brain cancer, I was searching for a way to include him in my sister’s wedding. I created an anklet with a locket and tucked his photos inside, allowing her to be walked down the aisle by our father.

I wore the anklet on my own wedding day and soon began making them for other friends and family. With each new locket, the idea for an extended line of jewelry began to take shape – one that would move beyond anklets and weddings.

When the time came to bring this idea to a bigger platform, I gathered up a team of people with the experience to make it happen. Together, we formed With You.

To assist with design and manufacturing, we have joined forces with one of the most established, prestigious jewelers in the United States. Run by the same family for more than 100 years, there is an incredible amount of pride and workmanship poured into every piece they produce.

Using vintage lockets as our inspiration, we designed a line of necklaces and bracelets (that can be converted to anklets for a wedding day), a ring and our original bouquet pins that allow a bride to carried a loved one down the aisle with her.

Comprised of precious metals and stones, there is nothing like them on the market today. And, we’ve been able to produce them at an affordable price point.

Today, we are offering our Kickstarter supporters the opportunity to buy a few of our favorites before they are available to the public.    

Our First Products!
Our First Products!

We have funded everything on our own. The website is designed and programmed. The pieces are ready to go into production. What we need now are the funds to stock inventory. As you can imagine, purchasing all those lockets requires a significant cash investment. The money we raise will go directly to ordering our lockets so we can open for business.

We are so excited about the rewards we are offering for our Kickstarter campaign! In addition to our original jewelry, we also have some terrific rewards at lower price points so everyone who wants to participate can find a way to show their support. Take a look:

We have included close-ups of each of the products down below. Scroll down if you'd like to see more detail!

Once you’ve chosen your reward (or if you just want to learn more about us), come say hello on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. We’re pretty chatty and would LOVE to hear from you!

Risks and challenges

We have been working towards our launch since November 2013. In these last nine months, we have worked out every foreseeable detail so that we can deliver on our promise. We have poured our hearts, souls and money into this venture. Partnered with the best resources. Pushed ourselves to meet every deadline.

Our lockets will take eight weeks to produce so we expect them to be ready by the end of September and in your hands at the beginning of October. If there are unforeseen delays, you'll hear it from us first and we will come to you with a solution. We believe in customer service and plan to deliver it at every turn.
