Dan Burkholder Brings Photographic Innovation to Fine Art Jewelry

I became fascinated with small photographs backed with 24K gold leaf, white gold and other precious metals. With my technical knowledge from the world of photography, I wanted to create tiny works of art that people would love to hold and wear. This jewelry line is presented in Wee Gold Works.

My original photographic image is printed on archival, translucent vellum that is varnished to enhance the transparency. 24K gold or white gold leaf is carefully applied to the back of the vellum, making the tiny print glow with the characteristic color of each precious metal. The last step is when I gently lower the finished gold leaf print into the metal mount and affix the glass covering over the print. It was a beautiful surprise to see how the domed glass focuses the light onto the image.

I enjoy individually crafting each of these art pieces and through my store's name, give a nod to my photographic friends in Northern Ireland where I taught a photography workshop many years ago. Enjoy these miniature treasures and stay in touch for more images and jewelry from Wee Gold Works.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me if you have an idea for a custom order or if my store doesn't seem to have the jewelry that you have in mind.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Through January, 2021, every order arrives in a sheer, organza gift bag with a blank card and envelope. Your gift will be instantly ready to give!

Is there a way to speed up the delivery of my order?

Of course! Contact me and we will work on additional options for you.

If provided a photograph by someone else, can you make a custom piece?

If the photo is taken by you, we can talk about a custom order (which is more expensive than what is in the store). However, you should know that not every photo will work because of its composition or its conversion to black and white. Contact me and we'll talk!
