Vacuoles and Chloroplasts
This necklace features a vintage brass locket from the 1970s, to which I have added an illustration of cells cut-out from a vintage science book. I have coated the image with various glazes and sealers to make it water resistant, but it is not considered waterproof. Please do not swim, bathe, etc, while wearing this piece.
I chose to use these wonderfully larger sized lockets so that they would be big enough to tuck away a little note or photograph on the inside. The locket measures 1 1/2-inches tall (4cm) and is made of brass, with an inner copper ring and hinge. Please note that due to it's age, the brass is naturally tarnished in some areas. View each image to see all sides of the locket. Please take care when opening/closing the locket.
The total length of the oxidized sterling silver chain is 24-inches/61cm and it finishes with a spring clasp closure.
Please note that the last photograph is shown for size reference. It is the same style necklace with a different image. You will receive the necklace shown in the first 4 photos.
All of my jewelry is sent in a gift box tied with a ribbon, ready for gift giving or receiving!
*If you are sending this locket as a gift to a special someone and would like me to put a tiny note inside of it, please leave a message in the "Notes to Seller" during the checkout process and I will be happy to include one!*"
