Viola odorata -- Sweet violet locket

I've already shown some jewellery I've made with readymade ribbon flowers here.

This is another example of a locket I made using a tiny ready-made violet ribbon flower. On its own it felt a bit too boring so I made two violet buds and a round leaf from hand-dyed silk ribbon and added it to the flower. It's a bit fiddly working with the narrow ribbons used here, but I think it was worth it. I stitched the flowers to the filigree front of my brass locket and added a few light bronze fp for a subtle sparkle, which is more visible IRL. I also added a few fp to the 60 cm long antiqued brass chain. I like to think of it as dewdrops.

The locket I've used is deeper than a usual photo locket as it is intended to be filled with solid perfume, as you can see in the pic below. Of cause sweet violet perfume in this case.
