This heart shaped vintage brass locket has tarnished with age to a wonderful, almost iridescent deep gold with tiny little age spots here and there. The brass has a wonderful, almost rosy sheen in certain lights.
Both the front and back of the locket is covered in a detailed and intricate chequerboard etching. The inside of the locket is inlaid with an amazing copper detail, with plenty of space for photographs or pictures.
At just under two inches at its widest points, this is a slightly oversized locket which is best suited to mid and longer length chains. This necklace is available in a choice of lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how it 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. All Silk Purse, Sow’s Ear packaging is made from recycled and biodegradable materials… even the bubble wrap!
