I've got a thing for lockets and iconic images. I've recently finished two necklaces featuring the Mona Lisa and the Mother Mary. In both pieces I've use halves of old brass lockets, recycled vintage gold chain, and strings of rhinestone. Each image has been set in resin. Both necklaces are for sale in my Etsy Shop.
The Blue Madonna features hand linked blue beads and pieces of vintage leaf chains. That's me in the photo standing on the driveway just a few hours before torching my First Holy Communion Booklet during my walk down the aisle. What can I say? I've always been a curious Jane.
The Mona Lisa necklace features a vintage earring with a porcelain flower that hangs from the locket. The earring came out of an old naugahyde jewelry box circa "Grandmother Era". Talk about a treasure trove!
