About

Taking Photography in Another Direction . . .

We have been photographers for years and wanted to do something different with our work. We thought it might be kind of fun to make wearable art from some of our favorite photos. As such, we began making pendants from our photography almost two years ago. At first, they were pretty much jewelry for Amy to wear, but over time, she started receiving compliments and questions about where she got the pendants, so, we thought it might be an interesting idea to start selling some of the designs.

We began by introducing them in our Etsy photography shop (www.ara133photography.etsy.com) but have recently decided that they deserve their own home . . . this shop!

All of the pendants and designs come from our own work. Each one starts with a photograph either Amy or Michael took and we basically shrink down the photos to the correct size. Each pendant has an actual photography print inside, under the glass. The small photos are then cut out to size and using a process that took some time to develop, we "seal" the photo to the glass tile. After some curing time, and a few other steps, we cement the glass tile/photo combination into a pendant tray and it's ready to go!

The process took a while to develop and after countless "mistakes", we've created a process that makes beautiful and durable pendants!

Most people are surprised to hear that it actually takes over a week to create one pendant from start to finish, as there are several steps that require significant drying/curing time for the materials we use. We've found that although this is a more time consuming process , it results in a better-looking, and much more durable pendant than some of the faster methods that don't use our process.

Ultimately, we hope you enjoy our work both in this shop as well as our photography shop (www.ara133photography.etsy.com)

Thank you for taking the time to visit and for reading a little bit about our work :)
