"Micromosaics" Commemorative Glass Locket
If you are not currently a member, we invite you to join or renew your membership online.
This handsome, sterling silver locket showcases the work of microminiature artists Harold Dalton - whose floral illustrations are composed entirely from the scales of butterfly wings, and Hagop Sandaldjian - whose minute sculptures fit within the eye of a standard sewing needle. A set of six interchangeable photo-reproductions of their extraordinary work are included and can be displayed under the glass dome of the locket. More information on the Dalton and Sandaldjian exhibits can be found here and here.
The frame of the locket measures 27 x 22 mm and features a delicate scalloped edge. A swiveling bail allows the locket to be rotated 360-degrees on it's 18-inch sterling silver wheat chain. To open, unscrew the small nut at the top of the locket until the front is released.
Please note that there are two locket styles available, a double-sided locket with a scalloped edge and a single-sided locket with a smooth edge.
Additional locket inserts are available, with a "Soviet Space Dog" theme.
