Large Thistle Locket


This great thistle necklace features an oversized vintage brass locket that's tarnished to a great deep gold colour. I have added a brass thistle that's been treated to bring out deep tones of verdigris green and gold. The chain is a rosy, coppery brass which coordinates brilliantly with the inlaid copper detail inside the locket.

The locket is fairly large, measuring 70mm (well over two inches) long with a perfectly working clasp. It's finished with some red brass chain that looks great with the coppery tones.

This locket is available in a choice of chain lengths. Please refer to our illustration for a better idea of how these chain lengths might look when worn.


We can personalise this locket for you, using a carefully designed technique to transfer your photographs onto the metal of the pendant itself, for a really soft and unique vintage effect. Parts of your image will merge with the golden brass behind, creating a very beautiful, unusual and ethereal look. 

This piece of handmade jewellery comes packaged in a nice recycled gift box with a handmade tag, all ready to give or keep.
