Spotted! Tiny Oil Enamel Cherry Blossoms Miniature Locket


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 Cherry Blossoms Locket is available direct from Khara’s Etsy shop – and do look around, her work is fabulous!

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
