This adjustable length, elegant necklace is made with a vintage 1950's locket; FUNtional locket opens from the side. Firmly attached to the front of locket is an enchanting, highly detailed, antiqued brass butterfly in a Victorian style. Locket has a decorative chiseled border around the front, reminiscent of art deco style, and further compliments the butterfly. The locket is attached to the chain by a petite decorative connector in a shape suggestive to a butterfly. All these little details add to the charm of this one-of-a-kind necklace.
The antiqued brass chain is 16 inches (40cm), with a lobster claw clasp, AND a FREE detachable 4 inch (10cm) extender chain; (use the extender chain with other necklaces in your jewelry box, too.) Due to the adjustable extender chain (that will sit hidden behind neck, when worn with necklace), the necklace will be adjustable from 16 to 20 inches (and every size in between), depending on the wearer’s preference (& outfit) that day.
~Please be aware that with any vintage pieces, (as is this locket), they may show some age (minor scratches, or patina inside the locket-which can be covered with picture). This by no means takes away from the piece, but enhances an item to give it that favored, vintage, antique feel. (All my pieces are from UNUSED stock, even vintage pieces, unless otherwise noted.)
IDEAS FOR INTERIOR OF LOCKET:
Inside of locket has a frame in which you can secure photos. (Perhaps of your sweetheart, a child, a favorite vacation spot...) (I generally use a small dab of glue behind pictures.) Locket interior has two sides- so get creative- place inside a picture, and/or a favorite famous quote, or an original sentiment, handwritten on folded up paper & placed inside the locket, or maybe a lock of hair, perhaps a cut out copy of a selected word and its definition from an old dictionary, or let the recipient decide what to do. Leave the inside blank and just place a wish, happy thought, or a prayer inside (=
NOTE: As an added bonus, if you email me a picture, I will custom print and cut your photo(s) to fit the locket perfectly & securely. (If assistance is desired, the email for picture to be sent to me, to place inside the locket, is: Regina.RedAppleDesign [!at] gmail.com)
A great gift for you or someone you know~
