Captivating in its combination of historical symbolism, this Julie Wolfe necklace is a combination of powerful pieces. Hanging from a vintage wooden bead rosary is a Victorian mourning locket carved from gutta percha (the source for early 19th century latex) carved with a cover of flowers. Inside the locket is an antique photograph. Edgy and full of its own story, this necklace has a haunting quality coupled with bold sophistication.
