Penny Farthing Art Locket

Artist Statement: I have the extreme pleasure of collaborating with Etsy award-winning photographer, Irene Suchocki. Her stunning work was featured on a recent episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition". She creates 'little poems for the eyes' and our talents merge to bring you little poems to adorn your neck!

This photograph is printed on Kodak Endura's gorgeous metallic paper. The colors are exceptionally vivid and the image has a unique three-dimensional quality. The paper has a lovely pearlescent sheen and it's simply stunning in it's brass locket frame. The whimsical "Penny farthing" image is captured inside of a fabulous brass medallion locket which features a warm antique finish and is sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine.

When snapped shut, the front of the medallion boasts a beautifully decorated textured pattern design while the backside shows a smooth finish. There is an empty recessed area opposite the art image for you to mount your favorite picture of your own choosing or leave alone for "Penny farthing" to get all the admiration!

The art illustration measures 28mm around (just over 1 inch) and the locket measures 38mm (about 1 1/2 inches). The medallion hangs on a brass figaro chain which is a generous 28 inches, but can be shortened upon request.
