Catherine Weitzman draws her inspiration from her innate sense of organic style, her love and respect for the ocean, and her extensive world travels. She's had the good fortune to study first hand with traditional artisans from many parts of the world. In addition to apprenticing with metalsmiths at the Scuola Lorenzo di Medici in Florence, this group of mentors includes silversmiths of the Sahara, bamboo whittlers from Indonesia, and creators of precious metal clay in Tokyo. Drawing from each of these experiences, Catherine developed her own unique process and production style. She designs much of her work with her husband, Scott Diamond, and collaborates with an extremely gifted handmade production team in their California and Hawaii studios.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Starfish and Bird Lockets:

    Received this necklace for my anniversary. Loved it! After about a month of use, it tarnished very badly. Normally this is not a problem a little silver cleaner can't solve. Due to the design of the locket it is impossible to clean. The tarnish on the interior is inaccessible to dry cleaning and the locket is not waterproof so it cannot be submerged for cleaning. I am left with a very dark drab piece of jewelry. For the price, I am very disappointed.

      I bought the starfish for myself and the bird for my sister. We both love it. I wish there was another unique design that I could purchase for my mother.

        Gave this to my wife for her birthday. We were married on the beach and this is a perfect piece to remember our day! Very sturdy clasp and the locket itself can be opened yet has a very tight closure! Over time maybe I'll get some loose diamonds to add to it. I feel comfortable doing so since the locket stays tightly closed!

          It does look nicer online, but it is pretty in person. More importantly, the main reason I picked this necklace is because you can get to the charms/stones and do what you want with them. I got this for my mother-in-law, who has 7 grandchildren, so I was able to leave the starfish and 7 stones in the locket (put the rest in an envelope for her in case she loses some or wants to add stones for other loved one). It's hard to find non-traditional grandmother necklaces for 7+ grandkids, so I recommend it or the other for anyone with the same idea/need.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Starfish and Bird Lockets:

              The necklace is precious! The long necklace is nice however it could be more versatile if the locket was able to be removed to put on a shorter chain when the neckline required it -but the bale does not slip over the end of the necklace. However the good thing about this is that by having the locket NOT able to slide off the end of the chain IS a safety factor so that it doesn't accidentally fall off when you are removing the necklace. The latch does not open widely enough on the chain to make it easy to attach. I returned one necklace that was worse than the one I kept but I decided the necklace was too original and lovely not to keep and I figured it must be a flaw (although not a fatal one)in all of them. I am getting much use from it as I live in Florida and I love the seashore theme. I bought the earrings to complete the set as well.

                My wife loves it and it is indeed versatile. Our only surprise was that the components on the inside Are actually loose such that when you open the locket they can fall out and be rearranged. This isn't a good or bad thing - just unique.

                  My mother bought me this. It wouldnt stay closed even with the new design.It was also small.. and the glass was wiggling all around. It was a cute idea but not sturdy. It isn't something that you could wear for a while - I like things that I know will be nice for life.
