This necklace is composed of a sealed link chain, meaning that your jewelry is extra durable! Your necklace will come as photographed but you may resize the chain or request additional stamping [stamping is free :) ]

There are 3 items that compose this unique necklace;
The escutcheon is very old, I cannot place the exact date but it's from the 1800s. This was a small decorate cover to a lock on my Great Great Great Grandmother's bureau, the bureau has 3 locking drawers to secure items that needed safekeeping. The bureau was in complete disarray & I salvaged what I could for another wood art project but also got to keep the cool knobs, locks & 3 of these pcs. The bureau is German so it's safe to say that this came from Germany or was made by a family member. It's nice to be able to share this in another art form to be enjoyed.

The dogtag is notched & I have stamped it with text reading 'WILL TRUMPS FATE' - you may find your own meaning as I found this to be a strong message to carry thru the day. The tag also is decorated with a round metalwork disc of brass for added interest & round echoed shape.

The final pc is a brass washer which was also part of the bureau. It seemed fitting to have it partner with these other charms as its the same hue & from the same 'family'

ALL charms may be removed from the chain.

Chain closes with claw clasp onto ringlet.
