I am seriously in love with this necklace. It was a custom order and I may not be able to give it away..... just kidding! Smiley I just hope she likes it. You can wear both locks together (like she requested) or you can wear each necklace separately. All components are vintage. The locks are from the 40's/50's, I believe. The key is quite old as well, though I'm not sure exactly how old.

It has a nice weight, but it is not uncomfortably so.  Smiley I can picture it with all kinds of pretty dresses.

I really like the locks. I love how you can wear them both or one at a time instead of them being connected. Great job!

The locks and keys are beautiful in and of themselves. (Why is it so hard for people to make things functional and beautiful these days?) But I really like the asymetrical composition, and the bead selection compliments the color of the metal. Nice work, as always.
