A New Day

The morning dew on a lily pad. The start of a new day. A symbol of rebirth, renewal and promise.

Hand cast from sterling silver and featuring a semi-precious turquoise bead, this lily pad necklace will always remind you that each day is a new day, nothing before it, nothing behind it.

This simple and stunning necklace begins as a carved wax sculpture and is then hand cast in sterling silver and polished to a high shine by artisans in Florida. Designed by Lori Strickland.

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 Lily Pad Necklace:

    I was really excited about this necklace, but unfortunately wasn't what I expected. The description online is accurate, but there are other things that I didn't care for.

    The jump rings on either side of the lily pad are huge in proportion to the actual lily pad, so it looks a little odd. The width of the piece is about an inch. The length of the chain is much too long for the size of the pendant- I'm petite so maybe this wouldn't seem strange on someone taller.

    Overall, the quality is excellent and would be a great everyday piece with some modifications.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent service and delivery! I order gifts from Uncommon Goods a few times every year and the service and delivery is consistently above average.

      Comments about Lily Pad Necklace:

      Great gift for my friend. Note to artist: It does not come with the great description "The morning dew on a lily pad. The start of a new day. A symbol of rebirth, renewal and promise." in the box... I looked for something to tell my friend why I bought it for her but will end up telling her.

          Comments about Lily Pad Necklace:

          I was looking for something with meaning after the stillbirth of my grand-daughter, Lily when I saw the Lily pad necklace and the meaning behind it...a symbol of rebirth, renewal and promise. I knew I had to get it for my daughter-in-law to show her how much I felt her and my son's sorrow at the death of their baby girl.

              This adorable little necklace was as pretty as it looks online. The lilly pad is thin, but durable. This has become my new favorite necklace and I continue to receive compliments.
