Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Wouldn't Ya Say?

A sweet, tiny, white-bellied bird is o-so-carefully painted inside this brass locket. There's detailing of his feathers and features, and he's perched on a spring branch bursting with blossoms in shades of bright aqua blue and white. The background is a pale, toasted seafoam color. An uplifting little reminder of the fresh outdoors. It's so cool and clean, and makes me think of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

I paint and complete 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.
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!). 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.
