"You can live in any city in America but New Orleans is the only city that lives in you." - Chris Rose
I've had numerous requests from my fellow lovers of the big easy for Beau & Stella's take on the New Orleans Water Meter so here it is!
I've custom designed an almost replica of the water meter (took some artistic license to highlight it's best features) and had it cast into a steel stamp so that it can be imprinted on metal. I then cut out a 1/2" (12mm) disc from a sheet of gold filled metal, and stamp the surface to leave the imprint of the water meter. The result is a delicate, feminine, understated homage to the great city of New Orleans. Wear it to show your love for the crescent city or just to remind you of the city that will always have a place in your heart.
This is shown at 18", but is available at any fixed length up to 20" for no additional charge.
♥ Diameter of disc: 1/2" (12mm)
♥ Total length of necklace as shown: 18"
♥ All components 14k gold filled, sterling silver

All chains, clasps and jump rings are either gold filled or sterling silver.
Most charms are stainless steel plated in 100 mils thickness of gold or silver. This is considered 'very heavy plating' and is about 10x the thickness of traditional 'plated' items. As a result, with proper care, it can last as long as any gold filled or sterling silver item.
I include measurements of the charms in both inches and millimeters. Most of my items have a delicate aesthetic by design. Please familiarize yourself with the measurements if you are concerned about the size.
The lengths of the necklaces are measured from tip to tip. Keep in mind that people come in all different sizes so 16" on one person may not fall the same on another person. The best way to determine your ideal length is to measure an existing necklace that falls how you like, or use a piece of string.
I take pride in my items being made exclusively in the USA. My chain and clasps are purchased from a company in California, my jump rings are made by hand in Colorado, my charms are laser cut in New York City and plated in Rhode Island, and my necklaces are assembled by hand in New Orleans, Louisiana.
A sad fact of life in this industry is that there are many copies of my designs floating around - especially in Korea and China. They are poor replicas of inferior craftsmanship and their prices reflect that. Please do not be fooled! My pieces are original designs, only made by me and sold on my website and to select brick and mortar boutiques around the country (and Canada).
I do not have a physical store in New Orleans but a select assortment of my items can be found at Zele NOLA located at 2841 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70115.
