Item of the Day: Acanthus Jewelry
Keep an image of your loved ones close to your heart at all times with the Heart Swing Locket by Acanthus Jewelry.
Acanthus Jewelry began when designer Nichole McIver had the desire to start a career of her own making jewelry. She majored in art in college, got a master’s degree in art history but worked for other artists.
Feeling that her personal talents were put aside, McIver decided to start something that was her very own, Acanthus. Her website launched in 2010, and the jewelry is shipped from her home studio in Oregon.
Crafted entirely by hand, this locket has a white topaz drop and the interior has space for two images.
The inscription on the inner rim reads “avec mon coeur entier,” which means “with my entire heart.” This inscription was inspired by engraved rings from the 15th century.
