So cute and clever. A teardrop, a hexagon, engraved flowers, a hinged locket. So much going on in one inch. Once it sat atop a stickpin, but we remade it to hang from a chain. A jeweler can help you remove the hair from underneath the glass and add your own, if you wish.
14k gold (tests), black enamel, glass, hair, new 14k gold chain
Very good - converted from a stickpin into a pendant
1" length including the bale, 18" chain
