Yours Truly

Bring back a once-cherished pastime (or at least the thought behind it), with this skillfully crafted Love Letter Necklace. Artist Yayoi Inada creates each piece from sterling silver, molding a hinged envelope pendant for holding a hidden love note. With just three words, "today and always," you can say what it takes some people years -- and sometimes, entire books -- to declare. Handmade in Brooklyn.

“I like to put the feelings of my childhood in the forest into my jewelry, the smell of rain, the warm touch of tree bark on your skin or sitting on a beautiful old tree stump just thinking up my own fairy tales.”

Born near a small forest in Japan, designer Yayoi Inada has long cherished the calm moments spent observing and appreciating nature's beauty. After working as an account executive for an advertising agency in Tokyo, she switched paths and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York where she could follow her passion of becoming a jewelry designer. In 2004, she opened her own studio in Brooklyn, New York. Yayoi individually crafts all of her designs by hand using 14k gold or sterling silver. She specializes in hand-etching techniques and detailed wax carving to accentuate her appreciation for organic shapes and natural beauty. "I like to put the feelings of my childhood in the forest into my jewelry, such as the smell of rain, the warm touch of tree bark on your skin, or sitting on a beautiful old tree stump just thinking up fairy tales," she says.

Nice, but not nice enough for the price

Was exited about this as an anniversary gift because it fits a theme we've been following for many years. But when she opened it, it was clear that I have to spend more money to upgrade the flimsy, short chain. My wife is fairly tall, and the chain is short enough that it's uncomfortable for her. Maybe fine for a 5'1" waif. But it's also so flimsy that even if the length was good I'd be afraid to let her wear it because it looks like it could break at any moment. The worst part is that I will be buying a new chain that's just a little longer and a little sturdier, then paying a jeweler to attach it properly, which will probably equal the total original cost of the item, whereas it could have come with a better/longer chain for an extra $5 or so in original cost.
