New lockets added please note dec 13 2021 is the last date for custom lockets and orders in time for christmas. In the early 1700's, lover's eyes were painted into rings, necklaces, pendants, and lockets. They were painted to capture a lover, a child, a mother, a father, a loved one. I do custom hand-painted eyes inside of these vintage locket settings.
Each one is hand-painted with oils onto a prepped gesso-ed polymer base, topped and sealed with resin to last. Each is one-of-a-kind, a keepsake, an heirloom painted just for you.Choose which locket you like in the options, or send me one you have ("your own locket" option- i'll send you my address), and then send me the photo of your eye (taken in natural light for best quality) and i'll have this painted for you in 2-3 weeks. If you have your own locket you would like me to paint in, please also include a photo and size of it (take a photo of it next to a penny) i will send you the address for you to send it to me. Please see images for available lockets for custom painted lockets i also source lockets so you can tell me what kind you are looking for (silver, gold, rose gold, square, diamond shaped, heart, etc). Custom painted lockets will take up to 3 weeks. These are unique pieces of art, so please be patient. The first photo in my listing are hand-painted copies of real 1700's antique lovers eye paintings- the collection of painted lockets in the other photos are custom painted lockets that i've done for customers (also im not yelling just wanting this to be seen haha) if you want the style of a 1700's eye please make sure you leave a comment when purchasing otherwise i will interpret the photo you send me to be like the photo. This item is made of gold plated and gold filled, rose gold, silver.
