A Lock Locket
Looking at keyholes or padlocks may not inspire most people but, luckily, artist Connie Verrusio sees beyond the mechanism to the graphic elements inside. By separating the machine from it's environment, she introduces commonplace objects as gorgeous pieces of jewelry. These keyhole or padlock necklaces remind the wearer of a simpler time, less dependent on the current electronic age. The skillful craftsmanship and fascination with mechanical objects make this necklace a truly distinctive gift. Made in New York.

- the maker
Raised in Chicago, Connie Verrusio now lives in New York's Hudson Valley, where she makes her jewelry by hand, often out of recycled mechanical objects. "I am fascinated by all things mechanical," she says, "and the choices I make reflect a deep reverence for the quality of workmanship, all too often a thing of the past."
If she were not an artist, she says she'd probably be a farmer.
