Blue Swallow Bird Locket
This swallow bird necklace features a vintage brass locket that's tarnished to a beautiful deep golden patina. We have added two sweet little swallows in flight that have been treated then painted by hand to bring out beautiful tones of cornflower blue and gold.
The locket measures 30mm across. This necklace is available in a choice of chain lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a guide to how these 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, ununsual and ethereal look.
What To Do Next
After checkout, all you need to do is send us your chosen images, in the best resolution you have, and we will take care of the rest! In terms of picture quality, most photos taken on smartphones will be perfectly fine! Please DO NOT send us any images until your order has been processed.
Please bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to circle-shape to fit in this locket ... so some background space is useful! Please allow 3 days for preparation and dispatch of your locket.
Some Tips for Choosing a Good Photo:
- Consider the shape of the locket, and how your photo might fit into that shape.
- Some background (not necessarily a lot!) is helpful - it might be difficult to work with a photo which is cropped very closely.
- Very pale, 'washed out' or overexposed images won't work very well.
- Please remember to send TWO images (or pieces of text, with a max of 8 words)
Please allow up to 3 days for your locket to be made.
