(larger image here http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii305/MezzanineSoprano/KatesNecklace.jpg)

Found text token necklace, including a vintage Indianapolis railway token "Indianapolis Railways" & "Good for one fare", a vintage game token "For Amusement Only" & "Token has no trade or cash value" and a genuine Victorian (1850ish) 3-penny love token inscribed with "Kate" on one side & "Victoria Dei Gratis Britt. Regina F. D:" with Queen Victoria's image on the other side.

22" sterling ball chain that I oxidized with LOS.  I made this for my niece Kate.

I know some of the text is hard to read; it is really tiny & tricky to photograph.

this is brilliant. I love the colors and how the token has your niece's name on it. I'd personally love to get it as a gift. Nice work

Thanks!

The best part was finding the silver love token that once belonged to another Kate, far away and more than 160 years ago.

The worst part is that my powder room still kind of stinks like Liver of Sulfer, even after I neutralized it. Smiley

The necklace is beautiful.  How amazing that you found a token with Kate on it! Hand-made gifts make the best presents without a doubt.
