OMG, THIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL! This pin of my husbands parents wedding photo was the biggest hit @ our wedding. His sister's were in years when helped him pin to his coursage. I am now ordering one for his sister's. :)

Received the beautiful charms today. All I can say is "gorgeous". They came in plenty of time as promised and I know my daughter is going to love them as much as I do! Thank you so much!

I am so glad I decided to go with this listing/shop! This piece was made with love. It is a good size and has substantial weight...I am amazed at the craftsmanship of this charm. Sharyn was more than helpful through the whole process- answering many questions and accommodating my short time frame (early even!). I am in awe of how beautiful this piece is. Thank you, I just know the Bride is going to love it!!!

About

Preserving Memories And Creating Wearable Pieces Of Art

I'm a self taught artist and creator. Learning to solder and create that perfect "bead" was quite a challenge but it didn't take long before I became addicted. It was thrilling to be able to put my photos between glass in addition to salvaging broken pieces of china and upcycling scrap pieces of stained glass and turning all of those things into wearable pieces of art.

I love browsing through all of the old family photos that I have inherited. One day I thought, 'what a shame that all of these beautiful memories were tucked away in an album out of site'. I began exploring various ways to display some of my family memories. The first piece I created was a pendant with a photo of my Mom and Grandma. I wore it all the time and had many people request one. Before long, my business was born.

My business has been so rewarding and I am quite honored that people have chosen me to turn their memories into a lasting keepsake.

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs regarding my custom made charms

1. Is your product just a premade frame that I purchase to put my picture in? NO. Each one is handmade in the order I receive it . I use the tiffany method of soldering which is the same as for stained glass.

2. What are they made from? The charms are constructed with two pieces of glass that your image is sandwiched between and the copper foiled and soldered using a lead free, silver gleem, non toxic solder.

3. Are they durable? Yes, they are very durable and easy to care for. I include a care card with each order so that you can keep it looking shiny and new.

4. What if I want to order more than 1 but you only have that quantity in your shop? No problem. Just convo me with what you want and I will create your own custom listing to include the total price of the quantity that you want.

5. Once I order, what information do you need from me? I need you to email me your photo and what you want on the back (they are two sided) and any details for customization such as, wedding colors that you want incorporated. If you don’t communicate your colors to me, I will use a clear crystal and white ribbon.

6. Can I order on Wed. and receive it by Saturday for a shower? No. Because each one is handmade, there is a 3 day process I go through when I create these between photo editing, creating the saying for the back, color customization, approving a rough draft, printing, then leaving the printed image sit for a day to cure the ink before I solder. It isn’t possible for me to create and ship these items in one day. Also there is a certain amount of lead time depending on my current volume of orders. If you have a tight deadline, contact me and I can let you know if my schedule will allow a rushed order.

7. Can I email you any time concerning my order? Sure! I try to be prompt with my replies and check my email and convos throughout the day.

8. Is it best to email you or convo you through Etsy? Once you place the order, it is easier for me to have all of your information in one spot so that I don’t miss any details. The ideal place to put your information is in the “message to seller” section when you place your order. You can still convo or email me with any questions. Like wise, I like to know the best way to keep in touch with you.

9. How do you package your things? I will package the order in either a pillow box with ribbon tie or an organza bag. Then I ship in a bubble mailer. My packaging is pretty and ready to give as a gift.

10. How do I know what size to choose? Use your photo as your guide. Square photos fit best in the square charm and full body rectangular may be better suited for the 1x1 ½” charm. Many times I can crop and make them fit for either.
If you are unsure, send me your photo through the convo system (no more than 1000 pixels) and I will look at it.

11. Can you guarantee shipping time? No. I’m at the mercy of the good old US postal system. I can guarantee when it will go to the post office but never any time. I suggest visiting the USPS site for aprox. times. I ship first class unless another shipping service is requested. I also cannot guarantee international shipping times. Please see my shipping policies.

12. What is your turn around time? It varies according to the volume of orders I receive at the time but usually your item is shipped in aprox. 1 to 2 weeks. It’s always best to ask me at the time of placing the orders. Some weeks are very busy and some weeks, I’ve just finished a bulk of orders and yours may be completed within 3 days.

13. Is everything done by you? Yes! I have control over all of my creating, cleaning, packaging, shipping, correspondence…


14. Can you customize according to my wedding colors? Most of the time, yes. I can incorporate those colors in the background of your saying, crystal colors, ribbon colors. If I don’t have the exact color, I usually suggest clear. I will work with you on this?

15. Can I add extra charms like a cross or a heart to my order? Sure, if I can customize further for you, just let me know. There will be an up charge according to what you want.

16. I’ve placed an order but it may take me a while to find the perfect photo. Is it o.k. if you don’t have my details right away? Sure! Take your time and find the perfect photo. Just let me know when you are ready for me to begin your order. Also, keep in mind what my turn around time is and the date that you will need it by.

17. Do you only do custom bridal charms or do you do other custom work? I do other custom work. I create mothers day charms, things for graduation, custom made key chains, fathers day... Also if you like some of my art pieces such as my house pins but want different colors used, just let me know. I have fun creating custom pieces. All of the same policies apply.

18. How can I be confident that I should order from you? If you aren’t sure, take a moment to read some of my feedback. You will find the link on the front page of my shop. I pride myself in delivering great customer service. If I make a mistake, I believe in doing what I can to make it right. I love what I do and I take my business very serious.

***Hopefully I’ve answered all of your questions but if you have any others, please don’t hesitate to ask before you place your order.
