Beautiful Custom Photo Jewelry, the perfect Valentine's Day Gift for that special Mom!

I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Julie, owner of J Woods Jewelry, while she helped me sort out the details of creating a custom photo necklace with portraits of my children.

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 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.
