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.

    Beautiful necklace that I bought my mom for Mother's Day. I got the 4 peas because she has 4 kids and we have a family business selling fruits and vegetables. It is so elegant and classy, especially for a necklace based on a veggie.

    Comments about PEA POD NECKLACE:

    When I first got the necklace, I loved it! It was a surprise Mother's day gift. After I wore it a few times the peas lost their luster and shine; they look very dull and it is not as pretty. It does not look as good as it did, and I haven't been wearing it! I wish I had returned it!

      I got this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. It can easily be dressed up or used as everyday casual. The necklace it came with was a bit too long though.

        I loved this gift when I got it from my boys on Xmas. Very unique idea and design however, the chain broke the 7th time I wore this piece. For the price that's unexceptable and my childs feelings are very discouraged!

            This was a great 3rd year anniversary gift for my girlfried. I wanted something UNIQUE, inexpensive, and meaningful and this was it. She loved it and the 2 peas in a pod was well-understood. It came in an elegant velvet bag. You always get great QUALITY for your money at uncommon goods!

              Gave the pea-pod necklace to my daughter-in-law at baby shower for grand-child #2. She loved it! Guests at shower were asking where I got it, so be ready for more orders! Wouldn't mind having one myself!

                Comments about PEA POD NECKLACE:

                I purchased the two pea pod for my grand-daughters 3rd birthday (she is my "sweet Pea") It is more suitable for a teen or adult. However, this way she can grow into it. I give her a piece of jewelry each year and this was just too cute and appropriate to pass up. It is beautifully crafted and without a doubt going to be something she, in turn, may someday pass onto her grand-daughter. Thank you for something so meaningful.
