Absolutely adorable and unique! One of my favorite necklaces and has actually come in handy for opening boxes at work :) I might switch it out for a longer chain, but that's just a style preference for the pendant- the one that it came with is nice.

About

Wearable heirlooms made in Richmond, Virginia

An avid collector at heart, I live to rescue vintage heirlooms and junk drawer oddities, transforming them into everyday wearable pieces of jewelry.

Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia (lovingly coined the "Up South"), my passion for jewelry design was only fueled while earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts. My southern roots are strong and Virginia is where you'll find me working from our home studio in the historic Richmond Fan neighborhood.

P.S. I also work in Merchandising for Etsy. Feel free to contact me at mary [!at] etsy.com or send a convo to my admin account, marymary.etsy.com with any questions you have about Etsy — I love making new friends.

More to see! My husband and I are avid vintage lovers and enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Discover some of our finds in my husband Tim's two Etsy shops: VintageCrack.etsy.com & BehindTheScreenDoor.etsy.com.
