ANTIQUE Pocket Watch Locket Necklace - Hand Painted Ruby Throated Hummingbird & Bleeding Hearts - Pierced Sterling Watch Chain Assemblage Jewelry A beautiful One of a Kind, Hand Painted, necklace fashioned from an antique 14K White Gold Filled, Watch Case. I loved the watch so I began to imagined how I could breathe new life into It. I cut a piece of mother of pearl and hand painted a ruby throated hummingbird feeding on bleeding heart flowers. The painting is done in gouache, an ancient medium use to paint miniatures for hundreds of years. The painted disc has been affixed to the sterling silver watch and an antique watch crystal that protects the painting.The miniature painting measures a mere 3/4 of an inch in diameter and the watch case measures 1 inch across by 1-1/2 long to the end of the pearl drop. The pocket watch is suspended off an antique 16 inch sterling silver bar watch chain, accented with gorgeous pierced bar links. The back of the watch case has a pretty etched design. You can open the case, however it can be difficult to open, as in all these old watches, as they are designed to be airtight to protect the movement.
Once you fill it you can snap it closed. Such a striking, spectacular piece of up-cycled jewelry. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Necklaces & Pendants".The seller is "cmal" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
