A kickback to the good ol' days, when you could hold pictures in your hand. Nostalgia in a nutshell. This little painting has been created from scratch in oil and oil enamel in shades of bright grass green with a darker green shadow and a lime highlight. A perfect commemoration for someone who studied photography in college and longs for the darkroom...

Each piece is painted before photographing, so the locket in the first three images above are precisely what this listing is for. This little guy is worked on over many days allowing the layers to dry as I build up details. All painted individually by myself in Brooklyn, NY. The paint is super vibrant and durable oil enamel, and painted directly onto the locket faces. No copies, no prints!

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 pretty swell worn open or closed. The chain is raw brass which will oxidize to a deep vintage gold over time (don't worrry, it doesn't mark skin or clothes). It measures 19-20" (50 cm), and is closed with a lobster clasp.

Each locket comes tucked in its very own complimentary vintage tin and wrapped up nicely as for a gift or for yourself. Shipping is first class with 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.
