It’s hard taking a photograph of a small object. Your focus has to be just right, the camera can’t move and lighting is always a concern. Put it behind a glass case and job just became harder. But that is nothing compared with actually creating a subject as small as this piece of history.

Part of the McFerrin Fabergé Collection, this locket is on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s “Fabergé A Brilliant Vision” Exhibit at Houston’s Museum of Natural Science.
