This beautiful personalised locket uses a carefully designed technique to permanently etch your photographs onto the metal of the pendant itself, for a really soft and unique vintage effect. Parts of your image will merge with the golden brass behind, creating a very beautiful, ununsual and ethereal look.

The locket features a rounded heart shape, with an ornate clasp that opens out to reveal space for four different pictures, instead of the usual two! The locket is solid brass and the fine chain and clasps are gold plated brass.

When clasped together, the pendant is a great, versatile size, which would look equally good worn short or long. The chain is available in a variety of lengths, and please refer to my illustration for a guide to what they would look like when worn.

***CHOOSING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS***
After checkout, all you need to do is email me your four chosen images, in the best resolution you have, and I will take care of the rest! In terms of picture quality, most photos taken on smartphones will be perfectly fine!

Please bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to heart-shape to fit in this locket ... so some background space is useful! Please allow 10 days for preparation and dispatch of your locket.

Some Tips for Choosing a Good Photo:
- Consider the shape of the locket, and how your photo might fit into that shape.
- Some background (not necessarily a lot!) is helpful - it might be difficult to work with a photo which is cropped very closely.
- Very pale, 'washed out' or overexposed images won't work very well.

This comes in four different lengths. Please refer to my illustration for a better idea of how necklace lengths will look.
