The photo locket pendant seems to have been a popular idea so I'm posting two other examples.
The first is actually just a small photo frame and not a pendant. It was made for a couple's 60th wedding anniversary.
The base color is silver and the texture was highlighted with gold and burnt umber paint. The gold gives it a very ornate and old-fashioned look but I thought it was appropriate for an older couple.
This time I used ribbon to join the two parts and an amethyst on the cover. I think it looked better with just the silver but it's still an interesting color detail.
The back has a heart with the number 60 stamped on it, as a reference to the wedding anniversary.
The second example is a pendant but it was done in black and white.
The base was black and the texture highlighted with white acrylic paint. I used ribbon again for the hinge.
The stone on the front is a hematite cabochon to go with the black and white theme.
I was very pleased with this last one. Even though it still has the antique looking texture, the black and white gives it a more modern feel.
