I Hope You Never Lose Your Way . . .

1860s Compass Fob with Hair Locket Compartment, 18K (in the online shop)
This is one of my favorite things right now.  The back has a lock of hair under glass, which is an unusual combination to find with a compass.   The idea of mourning and finding one’s way seems an apropos and poetic pairing.
