Heart Locket

About: Awesome Gear I've designed myself.

My son is in the drama club at his elementary school. They're doing the theatrical play “Annie” (little orphan Annie) and so I made this locket for their play.

While I wanted to completely buff it out, like my other projects, my son told me “Dad! You can't shine it up so much! It’s supposed to be very old. It’s from the 80’s!

And so that’s why it's still scratched up.

The last picture is my handmade locket next to a factory built locket.

    I think there is a better way to make this then what I did. Once I figure it out I'll post the instructable.

    Thanks for the support folks.

    Well you have my interest in making an Instructable for the locket. I've already made a heart version of your tear drop pendant, I made it with a pre-1982 penny. You have now gotten me interested in jewelry and metal working. Thank you for all the great work! I can't wait to see what else you have in store.

    Oooh, ooh ooh! Is fractal a shape? Or rocket ship? Octopus! I do like the heart. The first images make me think of keeping lip gloss in it. I think that's pretty nifty. I love all your jewelry. Whatever you'd like to make I would be honored to wear!
