Announcement   Welcome!
Holiday season is here and so is my deadline for Christmas shipping. Orders placed after Dec 5 may or may not arrive by the 25th.
I specialize in making photo charms that you can add your pictures to, or have me do them. They're the perfect size to clip onto wedding bouquets, floral arrangements, ribbons, pews, for baptisms, christenings, funerals, reunions, family trees and more.

Please note:
- Many of my photos are close-ups, and appear larger than the actual item, so that you can see the details clearly.
-Colours can vary from one computer monitor to another.
- I am happy to answer any questions or provide more photos if you like, just contact me.

About

I make wedding bouquet /memorial photo charms to remember your loved ones and keep them close.

I've always enjoyed working with my hands and using different mediums, but working with sparkly, colourful & little things (like pearls and crystal beads) is my favourite.
I always wanted a little shop where I could sell my creations. That was before the internet, eBay, Etsy and on-line shopping was available. While my husband and I focused on raising our 2 boys, I started making ceramics in the evenings & doing craft sales on weekends.
At the suggestion of a friend, I opened my shop on Etsy-late in 2008. It took a while, but my 1st sale was so exciting, and a big learning experience. My customer was so thrilled... and so was I! That is the best reward and always is!
It warms my heart to think of how many lives I've touched with my handmade pieces.
Gradually my husband has been taking on my mundane jobs, like cutting business /charm cards, tiny windows, making packaging and does all of our shipping. He even makes our 2-sided frames and photo lapel pins! We've expanded my/our shop to over 100 items and I am always open to Custom orders.
Contact me if you have any questions, comments or just to say hello, I'd love to hear from you.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The printed photo needs to be approximately
3/4 x 1/2 inch (1.7 x 1.5 cm)

Do you do the photos too?

Yes, I can do the photo for you. It costs $5 per printed photo. Some of my listings include the option for me to do the photo, but some have other options instead. (Those ones should have a link in the listing, so you can still add my photo service.)

How long does it take until I have my charm in hand?

I usually ship orders within 1 or 2 business days. Regular shipping can vary a lot, but usually takes under 2 weeks... however if there's delays (i.e.: Customs) it can take up to 12 business days to the USA, or up to 15 days overseas.

How do I send you my picture?

Just send me a message through Etsy, and attach your photo to it :)

How can I track my order?

Sorry, my regular shipping doesn't include tracking.
If you want tracking we need to arrange that before I ship your order.

Where can I get photos printed this size?

I don't know if/where you can get this size picture printed commercially. If you are unable to resize and print a photo yourself, I suggest you let me do it for you, it's worth the $5.
