This highly detailed locket features a stylised bee that's been treated and handpainted to bring out great verdigris tones of green, gold and turquoise. The locket is vintage brass that's tarnished over time to a great antique gold colour and provides a beautiful and unusual contrast with the turquoise colours on the bee.
This bee locket is fairly large, measuring 55mm (just over two inches) in length. The locket is available in a choice of different lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how necklace lengths will look. All my lockets have perfectly working clasps and space for two photos.
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.
What To Do Next
After checkout, all you need to do is email 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 bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to oval-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 per side)
Please allow up to 3 days for your locket to be made.
This piece of handmade jewellery comes packaged in a nice recycled gift box with a handmade tag, all ready to give or keep.
