I Heart Macro July 3, 2011

My husband recently brought this home for me.  I'm not sure if it's an old locket or a compact, but I like the etching/engraving on the top.  I think it would make a nice vintage looking necklace, so I'm going to clean it up a little bit and try to attach a chain.

  6. The etching on this piece reminds me of the etchings on a pocket watch. It's very pretty and I hope you can attach a chain. Good luck!
