Got something to hide? If so, here's a secure place to keep it! A rare vintage gargoyle with tiny red vintage glass eyes stands watch over a huge brass locket embossed with a spiderweb and emblazoned with a glowing vintage glass jewel. The reflective Aurora Borealis finish on this jewel is so amazing it's like a tiny golden mirror. The locket has been treated to my hand applied Bohemian Midnight patina and adorned with a blood red drop of vintage wire wrapped Czech glass. Measuring two and a half inches tall and an inch and a half wide, the locket is large enough to hold your darkest secret, a picture of a loved one, your fondest dream--or perhaps all three! The locket snaps closed securely and is suspended from a four and a half inch wide brass collar with a matching patina. The collar at its tallest point measures an inch; the gargoyle alone measures two and a half inches tall. A vintage antique brass filigree backs the fearsome gargoyle; both components are bolted to the collar with tiny jeweler's screws. Two more filigrees have been riveted to the collar ends; they dangle wire wrapped charms made of very old faceted red glass drops. The rosary style hand beaded chain is made of diamond cut Czech glass turbine beads that repeat the motif of the center filigree. Twelve radiant red beads comprise the chain that ends in handmade infinity links of sixteen gauge oxidized copper wire that have been tumble polished, sealed and waxed for strength and durability. The chain closes with a handmade hook and loop closure that allows for customized adjustment. From end to end the necklace measures about nineteen inches. All of the brass components have been sealed and waxed to protect the finish.
