Colourblocked Hand Painted Antique Padlock Necklace

I’ve been meaning to add a new item to my Etsy store for a few days now, but somehow it just didn’t seem to happen. Anyway, I finally took some photos this morning and got the listing up, so here it is- my colourblocked antique padlock necklace!

The key to the padlock is long lost, so it had been lying around for years uselessly, but for some reason I never threw it out. Then I came up with the idea of making it into a piece of jewellery- but just stringing a tatty old padlock onto a chain seemed a little boring. So I decided to paint it!

I especially love the bright cherry red that I used for the main area of the padlock, and I like the primary colour scheme in general- red, blue and yellow.

The silver snake-style chain is very long (38 inches in total), which I think works well with the fairly substantial weight and size of the padlock. The slim, simple style also means that the bright colours can stand out.
