Custom Photo Necklaces Are Here!


I have always had a weakness for photo jewelry, such as lockets, for which to keep a loved one close to your heart (and of course, show them off!). I was particularly awed by the beautiful designs of Planet Jill; simple, small-scale, classic designs. But with prices starting at $70, I determined to find a way to make my own...


I wanted to make a quality piece without the heavy price tag. And happily, resin was suited perfectly!

The photo can be embedded inside the resin making it durable and waterproof. Using a mold eliminates the need for a pricey sterling frame, and I also rather like the simple look of the sparkling, clear resin.

I still love sterling, so the pendants hang from Sterling Silver Italian box chains (my favorite).

Custom necklaces are just $30, with a variety of styles and photo options available in my Etsy shop.

I made a light box last week, seriously the best thing ever for taking photos with.

I just want to say Thank You for the light box instructions. My photos have turned out so much better. I will redo all the photos in my shop, so thanks again.
