Wouldn't you just like to live inside this locket?
I would.
Inside this little vintage sphere are the crisp white sails of a boat illuminated by the stars and crescent moon. The ship & waves are painted in a shade of dark blue and black, set over the lighter periwinkle-cobalt background. There's a suggestion of an island silhouette way off there on the horizon, but whoever is sailing this boat is in no hurry to get there.

I finish each painting before photographing, so the one depicted in the pictures is precisely what this listing is for. The painting is built up over many days, allowing first the background and then the layers to dry as details and colors are added. It's durable and water-resistant.

MATERIAL:
The locket is two-tone brass and comes from vintage stock, so each piece has its own bit of natural tarnish. The diameter of the sphere is 18 mm - same as a dime.
Many people have told me they prefer to wear them closed and keep the painting a secret, though I love to wear them open on display. Either way they're quite magnetic. The chain is raw brass which will oxidize to a deep vintage gold over time (don't worry, it doesn't mark skin or clothes). It measures 20" (50.8 centimeters), and is closed with a lobster clasp.

SHIPPING:
Each locket comes in its very own decorative tin (surprise!), bedded in tissue paper and tucked in an envelope tied with a colored ribbon. Padded kraft envelopes will keep it snug and safe. Shipping is first class with delivery confirmation (tracking) for domestic packages, and first class with a customs form for international. I ship 2-3 days a week, to get orders out promptly.
