Custom Photo Pins—Memories You Can Wear---Posted 4/20/09
|Photographs capture moments in our lives that we wish to remember, savor, and hold dear. We snap pictures of baby's first steps, mom's birthday, and our vacations, creating tangible reminders of life's precious moments.|
Photo pins, or brooches, are stylish and versatile photo jewelry pieces that offer a unique and fashionable way to share special moments with friends, co-workers, and acquaintances.
Photo Pins are "Fasten"ating
Each pin is artisan crafted with front and back panes for the showcasing of two photographs. The convenient safety-pin style clasp makes positioning and readjustment easy.
These pins can grace the lapel of a favorite jacket or blazer, or be pinned to a sweater or blouse. Use one to secure a scarf or shawl for a sure conversation starter. Clip several pins to a tote or book bag to create a portable gallery. Or give dad a pair to use as one-of-a-kind cuff links.
Photo pins can even serve as a cute and functional identification tag for a small child. Place a photograph of the family on one side of the frame, and a small card with parental contact info on the other. The photo will comfort children who are anxious about being away from home or parents. Teachers will love the convenience of having contact information at hand during an emergency. And, in the event the child is lost, officials will have access to important information without having to extract it from a frightened or frantic child.
Photo Pins "Brooch" the Subject
These lovely, handcrafted miniature picture frames will smartly showcase any beloved photograph. With photo pins, proud moms show off the latest family addition in style, grandmothers keep the family near and dear, and sweethearts are never far away.
No special photography supplies or skills are needed. Simply resize your favorite photograph with a photocopier or computer. Then, print the photo, trim it to fit, and tuck it into the frame. Experiment with various photographic effects to change the look of the photo brooch. Black and white photos will accentuate the lovely silver toned frame. Use photos with a sepia tint for a two-toned, antique effect. Full color photographs look great too and give the piece a more contemporary feel.
Photo Pins Offer Quality and Style
Each photo brooch is a hand crafted work of art made of jeweler's grade pewter. These artisan styled showpieces are available in two styles. The first combines the look of polished silver with delicate drop pearls for a classic, feminine look. The second frame has a burnished finish and is accented by six interlocking loops adorning the top of the piece.
Each brooch measures approximately 1" high and 1.5" wide, and offers a dual-sided frame. Constructed from a sturdy, but lightweight metal alloy, the pins are durable, while remaining decorative.
Wearing photo jewelry is a fashionable and unique way to share your cherished moments with the world. Photo pins offer form, function, and fashion with the snap of a clasp. With photo brooches, you can truly wear your heart on your sleeve.
