Locket Makeover

Little by little, my mom has gone through her mother's cosmetic jewelry and given me some of it.  And some of it well is not the prettiest, or even most normal, but this piece is an exception!



I felt like it was too loud with it being such a bright gold, so I wanted to "age" it to tone it down.


All I did was water down some of my artist acrylics and using a teeny tiny brush added the black. 

I think it is a success!  Now I just need to figure out if I want to do a long or short chain, and which pictures to put inside!
