The Young Martyr ~ Pictorial Shrine Amulet

The Young Martyr by Paul Delaroche ~ is the focal point of this handcrafted, one of a kind necklace.
Found image under hand cut antique water glass, set within a highly detailed clay frame. 
Hand painted with an Italian rust red based, antiqued gold finish. Pendant is just over @ 2 inches at widest, @ 1 3/8 inches long including bead drops.
Necklace is adorned with complementing faceted glass & antiqued filigree beads, measuring at @ 15 -18 inches long with chain extender. (length can be adjusted upon request when purchased ~ extender chain is added at no charge, but beadwork may be additional)
Parrish Relics are one of a kind and handmade in my one-woman (& two helpful cats) jewelry studio at Frog Hollow. Time and care is spent collecting tiny images that I find inspiring and captivating ~
Clay frames are formed around glass to pay tribute to the beautiful artwork they celebrate! Alchemically hand painted to match the metal components in the chains and findings, they become unique adornments that start conversations and are joyful to wear.
All orders are sent beautifully gift packaged in stamped recycled pillow boxes or organza bags, along with a care sheet and my favorite mossy tissue paper.
