Maybe you’ve heard the story: Arizona’s Bella Weems was just a sophomore in high school but knew that before long she’d be wanting a car. And she’d been taught early on that the way to get what you want is through hard work.
She loved making jewelry so she started with an idea: She would make lockets that would hold a collage of memories, achievements, passions and more. She would begin selling them to friends and neighbors and hopefully she’d earn enough for that car. In no time at all, the “living locket” she’d designed turned into a $20 million corporation.
For Placerville resident Tylene Ebbe, the idea of the living locket, the bases for the jewelry line for Origami Owl, was just too precious to ignore. “I had gone to an Origami Owl party and really loved the line,” Tylene said. “But more than that, I loved what they stood for. The company does so much for charitable organizations and just their philosophy … It’s a great company.”
The lockets come in a variety of styles, from ornate circles to lockets crusted in jewels. But the key to having a living locket, is to capsulate a life inside the transparent window in the locket. Small and delicate charms are chosen by the individual or by family members or best friends. Each is contained in that living locket, reflecting memories, events, special occasions or accomplishments.
