Small vintage tins and compacts have inspired me to make locket necklaces with little surprises hidden inside. I tell folks that they are "two in one" necklaces because you can wear them with the lid on or off for two distinct looks. Thanks to a great suggestion from my husband Thom, I've made my first "three in one" necklace. "Paw on the Faucet" features a vintage faucet handle, a tiny tin, rhinestones, buttons, and a brass kitty.
|Look #1 - lid on|
|Look # 2 - lid off|
|Look #3 - flip the pendant over for a rhinestone flower|

Who knows, perhaps a "four in one" necklace is next?
Below are seven other new locket necklaces upcycled out of vintage rouge compacts and tins.

|Topical Paradise, A Romp Through the Heather, and Bewitched Hazel|
