An exquisite art deco inspired locket, with multiple spaces for all the family inside!
The surface of this beautifully simple locket is covered in a geometric scallop, or fishscale design reminiscent of art deco. It folds out in a clever hinged concertina design to reveal four spaces for photos or pictures, instead of just two!
The locket is plain (unetched) on the rear. The chain and clasps are gold plated brass.
*** PERSONALISATION ***
We can personalise this locket for you, using a carefully designed technique to transfer your photographs onto the metal of the pendant itself, for a really soft and unique vintage effect. Parts of your image will merge with the golden brass behind, creating a very beautiful, ununsual and ethereal look.
** WHAT TO DO NEXT ***
Once you have placed your order, all you need to do is message us with your chosen images, in the best resolution you have, and we will take care of the rest! To submit your pictures, please use the Attachment function when replying to this message, by clicking on the “Browse” button. This should allow you to select your chosen images.
Please bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to a narrow oval-shape to fit in this locket ... so some background space is useful! Please allow 3 days for preparation and dispatch of your locket.
Some Tips for Choosing a Good Photo:
- Consider the shape of the locket, and how your photo might fit into that shape.
- Some background (not necessarily a lot!) is helpful - it might be difficult to work with a photo which is cropped very closely.
- Very pale, 'washed out' or overexposed images won't work very well.
- Please remember to send THREE photographs for this design.
