Ancestor Lockets

These 14k gold, 14k rose-gold or Stainless Steel lockets include a chain and open to welcome a treasure of your Ancestors that you can keep inside. In one I keep my Gramma and in another a snippet of her handwriting from an old recipe. I add crystals and charms to personalize them too. These lockets are for sale but I would much rather give you one for free in return for a story of your Ancestors that you wish to share.
So you get to choose: Buy one or Trade one and share the stories of your Ancestors.
