The Secret Love Necklaces were created to honor the women of the past who lived bravely outside of their gender norms, and often had to keep their love a secret to protect their safety. The vintage skeleton key with the sterling silver pendant is a nod to those times in history when a key like this might be to a secret hideaway, a motel, or a home shared by two women who had to live as “friends” to the outside world. 

The butch/femme dynamic is an iconic coupling that still lives on today, and it has nothing to do with succumbing to the gender binary. To me, it’s an energy thing. The attraction between a butch and a femme is an indescribable feeling that is not simply about visual presentation. It is a knowing.

I’m so grateful for the women of past generations who began to live openly as lesbians, and paved the way for the rights and freedoms we have today.
