I absolutely LOVE Victorian-era Velvet Lockets!
They are pretty hard to find and when I do find them, I tend to pounce!
All of the ones I've found have contained old tintype photos of not very attractive people.
Which is absolutely fine unless you plan to make jewelry with them.
Which I do!
So, I replaced the photos and got to work. What FUN!!
I'm going to give the new owners of these pieces the option of having the front cover of the lockets removed. I think they necklaces are much more beautiful when the photos inside are showing. And, I'd be sure to send along the covers.
I'm off to my Etsy shop to list them now!
