Isn’t it pretty?
I just love it.
Found over on Etsy in Khara Ledonne’s shop, I was completely wooed by this gloriously tiny little springtime scene. The hand-painted miniature locket is a spring-fresh scene of cherry blossoms on branches extending over a subtle mountain background.
The image is painted directly onto the locket faces (no glued paper that will peel up) in durable oil enamel that will last generations. Each piece is truly one of a kind. Each component is sourced separately, given a patina, and linked by hand.
The locket itself is brass, and when closed it’s a small, lightweight ball which looks stylish on its own. The diameter of the sphere is just 18mm – the same as a 5p piece.
The Cherry Blossoms Locket is available direct from Khara’s Etsy shop – and do look around, her work is fabulous!
