All of her pieces are handmade from ceramic clay, sanded, fired to over 2000 degrees, and finished with the high quality sterling silver clasps. The picture actually burns into the clay making it scratch proof and waterproof! I love the look of it. Each pendant has a smooth texture and durable finish. It is high quality, yet not too heavy to wear comfortably. Julie's pendants are not "do it yourself" crafts like some of the photo jewelry I have found online that are often glued together, or baked in a typical kitchen oven. Your piece will also have your choice of semi precious stone or Swarovski crystal beads that will frame your custom photo tiles. She sells bracelets, necklaces, and also Christmas ornaments. Some items have space for custom wording on them as well. I have a couple of different photo necklaces that I love, but the quality of this one is quite a bit nicer than my others. I have worn it twice, and both times have had total strangers stop me and ask me if I sold those in my photography business.
I wanted to share the "before and after" of my necklace.
I emailed her the color version of this photo. She did not convert it to sepia.
The color change is from the process it goes through to create the jewelry. You do not need a professional photo to have a usable picture. Closeups work the best. (If you have done sessions with me at any point and would like to use one of my copyrighted images, let me know, and I will email Julie the file, no problem!)
Love it? Let husbands off the hook this year ladies, and tell him you want one of THESE for Valentine's Day instead of roses! I don't know anyone that would not prefer a gorgeous keepsake of their children over flowers that will die in a couple of days.
