Nuts to You Locket (gold)

About

 

During the WW2 Battle of the Bulge, the Germans were winning, and demanded that the American troops surrender.  General Anthony Mc Auliffe's famous written reply was "Nuts!"  As in, "Nuts to You!" or more vehemently, "Go F*** Yourself!"  Nobody uses the outdated phrase today, but it's a good one.  Open up the hinged peanut and there it is waiting for you in raised letters.  This piece is based on a 1940's novelty locket for kids, but gets the grown-up treatment in silver or gold vermeil (high-quality thick gold over silver).  The silver version hangs from a 19" sterling silver chain, and the gold version's chain is gold-filled, also 19".  The peanut is tiny, measuring just over 1/2" long.
