This silver locket is a wearable invocation of Emerson's observation that "though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it within ourselves or we find it not." A poetic gift for an avid traveler or someone who means the world to you, Britta Ambauen's design features a small world globe in two hemispheres that open and close with gravity, revealing Emerson's quotation and a placid, faceted blue chalcedony gemstone inside. The locket allows the wearer to carry a reminder of the virtues of simplicity and beauty on her journeys - whether physical or spiritual. Handmade in Austin, Texas.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Britta Ambauen

Britta Ambauen jewelry balances simplicity and intricacy, sophistication and youthfulness. Her designs feature clean lines, delicate details, and unique forms. She believes that thoughts shape the world. The thoughts we revisit hour after hour, day after day, and year after year become our reality. Those silent musings shape our words, actions, outlook, and interactions. We are powerful beyond measure. She strives to infuse the ideas she contemplates most into her jewelry, and hope that the pieces her customers wear will help remind them of the thoughts they wish to manifest. Britta's jewelry is lovingly handcrafted from sterling silver, 14k gold fill, 14k gold, semi-precious and precious gems, and silk. She uses a wide variety of techniques including wire wrapping, intricate cutting, bezel setting, and etching to create an eclectic product line. Britta earned her BFA in fine art from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Her career in jewelry design started with an apprenticeship. After years of hard work at the jewelry bench, Britta launched her own line in 2009, with the goal of creating artistic jewelry that inspires the wearer. collection
