This necklace features a vintage brass locket from the 1970's, which I have added an original map of Los Angeles (cut out from an aeronautical chart.) I have coated the map with various glazes and sealers to make it water resistant, but it is not considered waterproof. Please do not swim, bathe, etc, while wearing this piece. I have affixed a tiny brass airplane to the corner of the map.
I chose to use these wonderfully larger sized lockets so that they would be big enough to tuck away a little note or photograph on the inside. The locket measures 1 1/2-inches tall (4cm) and is made of brass, with an inner copper ring and hinge. Please note that due to it's age, the brass is naturally tarnished in some areas, adding charm to the design! Please take care when opening/closing the locket.
The total length of the antiqued brass chain is 24-inches/61cm and finishes with a lobster clasp closure.
Please note that the last photograph is shown for size reference. It is the same necklace with a different image. You will receive the necklace shown in the first 3 photos.
All of my jewelry is sent in a gift box tied with a ribbon, ready for gift giving or receiving!
