Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
For often through the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
And music, went to Camelot;
Or when the Moon was overhead,
Came two young lovers lately wed.
"I am half sick of shadows," said
The Lady of Shalott.

I selected this excerpt from Alfred Lord Tennyson's ballad, The Lady of Shalott, and placed it in one half of the light brass-tone, scroll design locket. I captured her sad character in a small detail of J. W. Waterhouse's masterpiece, which I accented with brass wire to symbolize the golden thread she is tangled up in. I sealed the collage under a clear and durable resin. The poem portion has been sealed as well, but not under resin, so if you wanted to put a slip of paper of tiny treasure inside, you could, (just be sure not to add anything that would scratch the resin).

The locket looks like a pocket watch and has a worn and light brass finish. To open and close the locket, you have to push down on the clasp at the top, just like a regular pocket watch. The chain I hung the pendant on is vintage, also with a worn, light brass finish.

Pendant measures 1 3/4" in diameter.
Necklace is 31" long and slips easily over the head.

Thanks for your interest!
