New Product ~ Photo Jewelry!

I am excited to announce that I am now offering custom photo jewelry to my clients!

I was excited when I found this line of products by Kotori.  Not only am I really pleased with the quality and style of their pieces, but I really love the story behind the brand. Here is a quote from Kotori’s founder…

“I started Kotori because I was always being asked for pictures – photos of my kids. And in the mass confusion of just making it out the door, I never seemed to have one. So I designed one that I could take with me no matter where I went. Soon others began asking for jewelry of their own, and Kotori was born. Kotori, by the way, means “baby birds” in Japanese. My two kids are my own baby birds, so it made sense to name my company after them. After all, everything I do, I do for them.”

The Kotori line features a variety of pieces, from necklaces to cufflinks.  All jewelry pieces are made from solid sterling silver.  Each photograph is printed at a lab on metallic Kodak Professional Endura paper, and then sealed with an industrial strength coating (which is waterproof and UV resistant).

Each piece is handmade and totally customizable, so you can mix and match items to create a truly personalized piece.  Choose a necklace with one photo pendant to make a simple, elegant statement.  Or, choose multiple pendants to reflect a more modern, eclectic style.  You can even add hand-stamped charms with names or other text.  Once you own a Kotori piece, you can add to it or modify it over time by ordering individual pendants.

This is a beautiful and unique way to carry your treasured photos.  These also make wonderful gifts for grandparents and other family members beyond the traditional framed print.  What an excellent gift idea for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life!

This line of photo jewelry is only sold through professional photographers, so I am very proud to start offering this to my clients.  If you are interested in purchasing a Kotori piece of your own, you are welcome to use a photo from a previous session.  Or, book an upcoming session with me, and you will receive a 10% discount on your first photo jewelry order!  Please contact me for more information!
