Emails Are So Much Easier,
It's true.
But who doesn't pine for the old fashioned way? So send someone a tiny letter every day. No stamps,even.

Hand-painted in oil with the tiniest brush ever is a letter and a classic blue mailbox, all within a spherical locket. The letter has fine gray lines of detail and teeny letters that spell "I MISS YOU", and the mailbox has a bit of lighter blue to highlight. The letter is a glossy white, and the background around both images is a cream enamel with sepia-toned cast shadows to make them pop!

I actually gave a locket just like this to my favorite lady at the post office before she transfered to another station, so it's extra sentimental.

I paint and finish each piece 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.
Looks swell worn open or closed. 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!). 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.
