Each one of our picture lockets carries something incredible inside. They carry stories of those we love so dearly, of those who give us courage and strength, of those we've lost and who cannot be replaced, and so much more.
Each person in the With You Lockets office carries their own cherished memories inside their locket. Read on to see who everyone carries in their locket! You may be inspired as to who you want to carry in your own picture locket!
Mikki is the founder of With You Lockets and our President. Her story and vision built With You Lockets.
1. Which picture locket do you have? I have the Claire Locket Bracelet.
2. Why did you choose that locket? When we were designing the first line, it was one of my favorites. I think it's just so stunning and love that I can wear it to be dressy or with jeans.
3. Who do you carry in your locket and why? I carry my dad in this locket. He was such a big part of my life that it makes me happy to look down and see him smiling at me.
4. When do you wear your locket? I wear him whenever I feel like I need him. I have taken him to a lot of business meetings... Also I love to take him to things I think he'd have fun at...like a party or a trip somewhere fun. Wearing him gives me a strength and keeps me from being as sad about him not being here.
Sammie is our lead designer and photographer. (Aren't her photos just beautiful?)

2. Why did you choose that locket? I like how small and intricate it is.
3. Who do you carry in your locket and why? Mike, my fiancé, because I love him! We're high school sweethearts who have been together for 5 and 1/2 years. We are getting married in May! The photo inside the locket is from our engagement shoot and it's one of my favorites.

1.Which picture locket do you have? The Maggie in Silver.
2.Why did you choose that locket? It's a unique shape and a funky statement. I wanted people to notice it when I wear it and ask me about it. This way I can tell them this is where I work and show them the photo inside!
3.Who do you carry in your locket and why? My Husband, Dennis and I together. It's a photo of both of us on our road trip on a California beach with our feet up on a cooler 'cheersing' after one month on the road. I always will remember that trip and seeing the country with the greatest person I know as one of the best times in my life.
4. When do you wear your locket? I wear it for occasions when I'm visiting friends or family or when I want to add something special to my outfit.
Sam is our marketing manager. She owns two With You lockets and couldn't pick a favorite so we interviewed her about both!
1.Which picture locket do you have? One of the lockets I own is the Mickey in yellow gold.
2.Why did you choose that locket? I love that I can wear it with jeans but also wear it for a special occasion. Also I wear a gold diamond necklace that belonged to my grandmother. I wanted a locket with her picture in it to sit just below it. The Mickey was a nice compliment.
3.Who do you carry in your locket and why? My grandmother passed away suddenly a year ago. We were extremely close and I was really struggling how to handle her death. Being able to carry a picture of her with me has made it all a little easier.
4. When do you wear your locket? I usually wear it for day to day stuff. I will also wear it on a short chain when I am playing volleyball. Definitely I have a tendency to wear it when I am feeling nervous or need a little extra support.
1. Which picture locket do you have? The second picture locket I own is from the Zodiac locket collection. It's the Libra because that's my astrological sign.
2. Why did you choose that locket? That is my zodiac sign. I picked it because I thought it was cool eye catching piece.
3. Who do you carry in your locket and why? I carry my boyfriend, Trevor, in this locket. I love this picture of him. It is definitely one of my favorites. It's nice being able to carry a picture of him when he is not around.
4. When do you wear your locket? Because the design is a bit unique, I don’t wear this locket often but typically wear it with casual clothes. It really pops when I wear it with black!

1. Which picture locket do you have? I have the Elsie locket necklace in rose gold.
2. Why did you choose that locket? The Elsie is named after my great-grandmother. She served her country of England in World War 1 which I think is inspiring! She also fell in love with one of the soldiers and would sneak out at night to serve him extra portions of dessert. How cute is that?
3. Who do you carry in your locket and why? I carry a photo of my boyfriend, Brendan. The photo is from one of those special occasions when we got all dressed up and I like to look back at that fun memory!
4. When do you wear your locket? I wear it when I'm dressing up or when I want to add a little something extra to my outfit. Another time I wear it is when I'm missing my boyfriend extra. I love being able to open up my locket whenever I want to smile or see his face.
