Frida Khalo wants to save the helpless, she has black hair, big green eyes and a lamb, a dog in the pants and two cats on. The antique brass Locket is the treasure chest of secret dreams.
Each doll is embedded in transparent resin. It’s a very accurate and difficult craft job that I have tried and meticulously assimilated in recent years to protect the image as if it were a crystal, without having its bulky weight.
To work best resin I even made a heating work surface. I have selected and tried many types of resin until I chose Prochima, because after years it is always transparent and does not turn yellow. But if you know a kind of ecological and transparent resin, please let me know … !!! 🙂 I will also test that.

The image on the locket is a reproduction of my art work, printed with archival colors on super bright quality paper. I use EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R3000.
The pendant opens and it is nice to keep our dreams, secret photos, solid scent, pills, inside and so on. I make it with an oval card on which I personally write a positive message.
Size: Inside lockets, there are two oval voids recessed to mount favorite images. These openings measuring 1, 3/8 inch height and 1 inch wide. External measures 2 x 1/4 inch, and image size 1, 1/8 x 1,5 inch. The rolo chain antique bronze, finished with a fluorescent bead, length 30 inches.
I believe in my prayer and direct relationship with God. I turn to him as a friend asking for advice, thanking him for gifts he does for me every day. That’s why I thought of using beads of real rosaries. Perhaps we can not pray so many times, but at least a direct message to Him every day is already something good, don’t you think so? 😉
