Photo Jewelry – Unique Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

by Daniel Pietzsch

Sunday, May 10, 2009, is Mother’s Day, and finding the right gift for that special mother can be a challenge. This year, honor mom with the unique, stylish, and cherished gift of photo jewelry. Available as a pendant, bracelet, or brooch, photo jewelry is sure to make mom smile.

Photo Pendants for Mom

Photo pendants are created from a sturdy, but lightweight lead-free alloy, resulting in a lovely pewter finish. Each pendant is fashioned by hand and designed with a dual-paned frame to showcase two photo memories.

Photo pendants are available with rectangular lockets in both vertical and horizontal arrangements. Each pendant measures 1″ by 1.5″ and is artfully detailed with intricate swirls or delicate drop pearls. A square pendant is also available, accented by a lovely star fixed along the top edge of the locket.

Each fashionable, functional pendant floats on an 18″ chain, and is crafted of delicate interlocking rings that secure with either a lobster-claw or toggle clasp. With the lobster-claw clasp, the original chain is easily removed, allowing the wearer to substitute a chain of any desired length. The current popularity of longer necklaces makes this an especially timely and convenient option.

Mom will delight in and appreciate a gift that keeps loved ones so close to her heart.

Photo Bracelets for Mom

Photo bracelets are skillfully crafted by hand from the same quality pewter blend as the photo pendant. Fashionable oval links in this special piece draw the eye to an artisan-crafted locket. This 3/4″ square locket will display two photographs, one on either side of the frame. Secured by a lobster-claw clasp, the photo bracelet allows the wearer to adjust its size from 7″ to 8.5″. The end of the bracelet’s chain is accented with a dainty pearl, giving it a soft, feminine look.

A true conversation starter, the photo bracelet will be the piece mom reaches for again and again.

Photo Brooches for Mom

Photo brooches are also crafted of jeweler’s grade pewter. Each pin is rectangular and measures 1″ high and 1.5″ wide. Two pin styles are currently available, each with individual charm and allure. One has a lightly patterned surface accented by three delicate drop pearls. The other brooch offers a subtly etched surface with that will vary slightly for each piece as the artist’s inspiration changes a little each time.

Mom is sure to love the versatility and style of a photo brooch. She can pin it to the lapel of her favorite sweater or blazer, or use it to secure a shawl or accent a scarf.

Photo jewelry is an interesting, artistic way to show mom how very much she is loved and appreciated. Subtle but unique design characteristics are evident in each of these hand crafted works of art, and provide the wearer with a one-of-a-kind item that is certain to be the envy of friends and acquaintances. Mom is sure to adore any one of these delightful, uncommon pieces, and appreciate your thoughtfulness and ingenuity at having selected such a beautiful, cherished keepsake.
