With Hope and Friendship

Rich with history and sentiment, this blueberry pendant by Lori Strickland is a unique reminder of faith and friendship.

Revered by Native Americans for their mystical and medicinal properties, blueberries became a rich symbol of hope and friendship when shared with the Pilgrims on Plymouth. The crop thrived in new terrain and became a visible bond between divergent groups and helped form early American values.

Handmade in Florida of blue agate and sterling silver. Shipped with a card explaining the blueberry symbolism.



Combine multiple fruits and veggies on a charm bracelet.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Lori Strickland

A native Floridian, Lori Strickland comes from a long line of ranchers and cowboys-"Old Florida," she calls it. "Before the mouse took over." Lori trained at the Gemology Institute of America and The Jeweler's Bench of Florida. While she was studying to become a designer, she met her husband, who was studying to become a manufacturer.

"We have the perfect relationship in many ways," Lori says. "Every designer needs a manufacturer and every manufacturer needs a designer."

The Stricklands have worked together for 15 years and have a 10-year-old daughter, who has designed jewelry and made wax models since she was six. She's even designing something to be featured in Lori's next collection. "We are a true family business," she says.

"My inspiration comes from the world around me. I tend to see things from a different angle than most people. I enjoy the irony and romance of life. Plain objects seem whimsical and I see things like the cork in the dog or flowers and plants that dance like ballerinas."

When she isn't busy with jewelry, Lori is taking her daughter to voice lessons or barefoot skiing when the weather is nice. The family also enjoys walking on the beach, surf fishing and playing with their two dachshunds.

    Comments about FARMER'S MARKET BLUEBERRY NECKLACE:

    I bought this necklace in November but chose to wait till I gave it as a Christmas gift to write a review. I could not have chosen a better gift. My boyfriend's sister put it on after she opened it; I was pleased with the length and how elegant it looked. The meaning behind it was also very suitable. Thanks, Uncommongoods, for allowing me to find the perfect gift for a really nice person!

      Comments about FARMER'S MARKET BLUEBERRY NECKLACE:

      This necklace was purchased as a gift very far in advance so the recipient has not received it yet. I was slightly concerned when ordering over the size of the charm itself, but it really is a good size and delicate looking, not too big at all. The piece is very shiny and the box it comes in makes a beautiful presentation. I know my friend is going to LOVE this beautiful, unique, piece of jewlry!
