About

Welcome to my little Etsy shop!
I'm Gina Martin of Gina's Photo Gems, a business that grew out of the fact that I ran out of wall space upon which to hang photos of my two little boys. Really!

Before heading home to raise my guys, I was a middle and high school English teacher and also educated in school counseling, something I look forward to going back into some day. In the meantime, I am really enjoying making photo jewelry creations for sentimental folk such as myself, and plan to continue doing so!

Through research I feel I have found and create the highest quality, most affordable product that I can offer. It is my hope that you will agree and enjoy my treasures as much as I enjoy creating them.

Happy shopping!
Gina
