Well, I didn't think I would have anything to show for Vintage Black Friday; however, I remembered this necklace that I had posted for a Silver Sunday Post. Since it is black, vintage and heart shaped (how appropriate for Valentine's Day), I thought it was worth sharing again.
This necklace belonged to my Mom, it was an anniversary gift given to her by my father, over 50 years ago. This is not any necklace. As you can see, it is decorated with the head from a mercury head dime, painstakingly cut by my father. I am not sure what the next three materials are, the black heart, the white heart and the base (perhaps steel?) heart. It is an exquisite piece of craftsmanship. I know it was with great pride and love that my mom wore this necklace. I was thrilled when she passed it on to me. Someday, it will be worn by my daughter..... someday, but not yet.
