Locket Necklace with Chiaroscuro Artwork for Solid Natural Perfume
The natural solid perfume art locket necklace contains the illustration called Chiaroscuro by Greg Spalenka. This romantic, antique inspired oval, brass locket opens to reveal a separate little tin pan for your favorite illuminated perfume in solid form. The term Chiaroscuro comes from Italy, referring to the tonal contrasts suggesting volume and modeling of the subjects depicted. The literal translation of the word is light-dark. It is the name of this illustration and one of our perfumes.
The luminescent image has been printed on a gorgeous metallic paper and then sealed with a glass-like finish, it is showcased in a detailed oxidized brass oval locket. The colors are well saturated and vibrant with the subtle details of the artwork visible.
