I handmade this custom geometric locket after a client from the U.K. emailed me with her vision. Below you can see the process for this piece. 

Creating lockets requires quite a bit of engineering as the hinges and clasps need to fit perfectly for a solid open-close mechanism.


Initial client sketch - I was emailed this drawing

Taking this into account, I came up with this sketch,
after which we agreed to move forward.
