New Lockets just added!!

In the early 1700's, lover's eyes were painted into rings, necklaces, pendants, and lockets. They were painted to capture a lover, a child, a mother, a father, a loved one.

These are custom hand-painted eyes inside of vintage locket settings. Each one is hand-painted with oils onto a prepped gesso-ed polymer base, topped and sealed with a non-yellowing poly-acrylic sealant to last. Each is one-of-a-kind, a keepsake, an heirloom painted just for you.

Please choose the locket you want in the listing photos, then send a clear photo to Etsy messages. Please message me if you have any questions.

Choose which locket you like in the options, or send me one you have ("your own locket" option- i'll send you my address), and then send me the photo of your eye (taken in natural light for best quality) and I'll have this painted for you in 2-3 weeks.

If you have your own locket you would like me to paint in, please also include a photo and size of it (take a photo of it next to a penny) I will send you the address for you to send it to me.


****Please see images for available lockets for custom painted lockets!**** I also source lockets so you can tell me what kind you are looking for (silver, gold, rose gold, square, diamond shaped, heart, etc!)

CUSTOM PAINTED LOCKETS WILL TAKE UP TO 3 WEEKS. These are unique pieces of art, so please be patient!

**THE FIRST PHOTO IN MY LISTING ARE HAND-PAINTED COPIES OF REAL 1700'S ANTIQUE LOVERS EYE PAINTINGS- THE COLLECTION OF PAINTED LOCKETS IN THE OTHER PHOTOS ARE CUSTOM PAINTED LOCKETS THAT I'VE DONE FOR CUSTOMERS (also im not yelling just wanting this to be seen haha) IF YOU WANT THE STYLE OF A 1700'S EYE PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A COMMENT WHEN PURCHASING OTHERWISE I WILL INTERPRET THE PHOTO YOU SEND ME TO BE LIKE THE PHOTO. THANK YOU! :D***

I’m blown away!! This was a splurge for me, and I’m so glad I got it. Just beautiful work. I gasped when I opened the locket the first time. The wee painting is so similar to the photo I sent as reference. And even without seeing the reference pic, people I’ve shown it to say it is recognizably my partner’s eye. If you love history and want to keep your loved one close, don’t hesitate to get this beautiful lover’s eye jewelry! She does pets, too, and one day (hopefully not too soon) I may have to return to have my cat painted.

Michelle made the most gorgeous little portrait of my boyfriend’s rescue kitten in a locket. She’s our star and Michelle gave her so much life with such a small space. Thank you!

Thank you so much to Michelle for my beautiful custom hand-painted eye locket! I had both eyes painted and I asked if she could add two of my favorite flowers: Lilly of the Valley and a red rose. Each eye is different with one looking right at the viewer, and the other looking slightly ahead. I love them!

I’m blown away by the beautiful custom Lovers Eye Michelle painted for me. It’s everything I’d hoped for & more! She is so easy to work with, incredibly talented & I I couldn’t be more thrilled with the end result. Thank for a keepsake that will be enjoyed for years & years to come.
