All Patricia Locke jewelry is handcrafted by a team of artisans outside of Chicago, IL.
Patricia Locke Ltd. jewelry is immediately recognized for its distinct asymmetry. Metal combines with semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, glass beads and pearls. It is modern with an heirloom quality. These designs go from dressy to casual. Make it a focal point with a little black dress. Or stop by to pick up your Patricia Locke “T-shirt earrings.” Perfect for when you’re dressed down but want a little sparkle on your ear.
Patricia Locke is self taught in jewelry design. She made her first pieces in 1971. The business started small with private sales of fine jewelry. It grew to become the first designer costume jewelry line. In 1997, Patricia partnered with Deborah Rethemeyer. The two women design new collections each year. The inspiration for new designs come from architecture, archeology, astronomy and global travel. Each new group tells a different color story.
Materials: The metal component is sterling silver plate over pewter. All ear wires are gold-filled or sterling silver. Posts are surgical steel. No nickel is used. All pieces are finished with a protective lacquer. Don’t us liquids, detergents or treated cloths to clean. Put on after lotions, perfumes or sprays. Expect some natural aging effects.
