About

Keeping Your Memories Close...

Over the years my shops role has changed from offering predesigned pendants to ....
Creating one of a kind pendants using your treasured photographs... All of this came about when my daughter Katy's boyfriend made the life changing decision to enlist in the United States Army. Katy began her search for a special piece of jewelry to keep his picture close to her heart and couldn't find what she was looking for. Good ole Mom to the rescue! and here we are....

When we love something, we keep it close to our hearts. Let us create a beautiful one-of-a-kind pendant that will let you hold tightly to the things you cherish. Our double-sided art pendant/charm will feature a high resolution image encased in glass. Each pendant/charm is carefully soldered by hand using timeless stained-glass techniques.

Once the image is chosen it is sized to fit the glass, printed and trimmed. The glass is cleaned and polished; images are positioned on the glass and secured using copper foil tape. Then the soldering begins, each piece is held together using a copper foil tape . The copper tape is folded and burnished smooth. Flux is then applied just to the copper tape area, using a very hot soldering iron the lead free solder is carefully applied a tiny bit a time. The piece is then cleaned and polished to give you years of wear.

Please expect and embrace the handcrafted “imperfections” that you will find for they make each and every piece truly unique.

We hope you will enjoy your pendant as a treasured heirloom for years to come. Please do not wear in the shower or while swimming. Not intended for use by children.

We believe jewelry isn’t just supposed to be pretty. We believe it should say something about the wearer. Our handcrafted charms and pendants will add a unique and special touch to any jewelry collection. You may soon find that your 2SistersThings pendant is your most cherished piece.

Because each piece of made by a skilled hand, no two are alike. Each piece has its own personality, which is most definitely unique.

• Welcoming a new baby
• Celebrating a special occasion
• Enjoying a favorite photograph
