Chelsea Girl, who’s still in the midst of her Seaside rendezvous (so adorable), managed to pull herself away from the sand and sun long enough to point me to a couple of pieces of jewelry I love, from Barbara Klar of clearmetals.com.

She has this awesome pieces she calls ‘Victorian Skull Lockets’ – and given my fetish for padlocks and other things that lock, I think these things rule – though these are lockets, not actual locks (I’d dig seeing a working padlock version, though!) I’d love to have a look at one of these first-hand, though alas, she’s over on the other coast.

She doesn’t list prices, though she’s she’s happy to quote if you contact her and I’ll post ’em here if she gives me an ok on that.

Awesome pieces, I tell ‘ya. She has a few skull rings, though they’re a bit girly for my taste, and a lot of other lovely pieces, so her site’s worth a look-over.

  1. Her stuff rocks! It’s pirate jewelry–or is it wench jewelry?–and I lurve that sorta thing. Bookmarked!

    I have a jewelry-making friend who works with precious metals, and she told me recently that the price of silver has gone *waaay* up lately. No idea why, but it sucks for silversmiths. So, I understand the gal when she says that quoted prices aren’t valid–being a jewelry designer/maker/seller really sucks sometimes, despite the shiny objects.

  2. Yeah, all my jeweler friends are suffering with that, and everyone’s prices are going up. Which is annoying. Damned commodity nature of shiny metals.

  3. I just recently saw an episode of the Today show where they were discussing how popular jewelry pieces with skulls on them are right now, presumably as a result of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. But these lockets are so much more special and so unusual that they’d probably be a big seller on eBay.
