Khara Ledonne works primarily as a sign painter in NYC. She began making her locket necklaces by chance.
The enamel oil painting is built up over many days, allowing first the background and then the layers to dry as details and colors are added. It's durable and water-resistant. Locket is brass which has been lightly oxidized, then misted with a matte varnish for extra protection. The diameter of the sphere is 18 mm—same as a dime. The chain is raw brass which will oxidize to a deep vintage gold over time (it will not mark skin or clothes). Chain measures 20” and is closed with a lobster clasp.
Kindly note: Each necklace is handpainted and will differ slightly from what is pictured.
