Charming Memories Photo Jewelry Review & Giveaway

CONTEST CLOSED

charming memories

Family photos are so important to me, and being able to actually wear a picture of my family and look at it every day is such a pleasure! Last year we had our portraits taken by my BFF Hillary from Stills by Hill in San Diego, and this year, I had one of my favorite photos made up as a piece of jewelry by the amazingly talented Aileen from Charming Memories!

Aileen is a jeweler and an artist. She designs all kinds of amazing pieces and one of her specialties is creating beautiful photo jewelry and hand stamped photo art pieces at her company, Charming Memories. The piece that she created for me to review is a photo piece on a real mother-of-pearl charm! How beautiful! If you are a fan of mother-of-pearl you will absolutely love having the opportunity to win one of these pieces for your very own! The most fun part of this piece is when Zachary looks at it, and says, “Mommy, Daddy, Baby!” – it’s so cute that he sees and enjoys our little family even on a small piece of jewelry!

Here is a picture of the necklace that I received as a sample:

Working with Aileen has been a wonderful process. Although there might be many bigger name commercial/corporate places out there who do similar things with photos, I like that Aileen handles everything herself. It is not like leaving things to a computer or a machine. She uses her own artistic talent to make sure your image is cropped appropriately, placed on the charms, etc. She will also convert your image to the color process of your choice, such as black and white. Also, the photos are all professionally printed and sealed with a jewelers grade resin. This way you can be sure they will be protected from the elements. All charms are water resistent,, which is a relief for me living in a place like Florida, where it gets extremely humid in the summer. I can still enjoy my photo charms!

Aileen makes a variety of jewelry and photo pieces from her amazing Mother of Pearl Photo Jewelry to beautiful Sterling Silver pieces, to adorable hand-stamped jewelry items, and she even does custom orders for those who want something truly special and unique.

BUY IT! Visit Charming Memories to purchase one of Aileen’s amazing photo jewelry pieces! If you place an order, don’t forget to tell her that Bright Autumn Sun sent you!

WIN IT! You can win an 18mm mother of pearl photo charm necklace! Mandatory entry: To enter the contest, visit Charming Memories website or the Etsy Shop, and let me know which products you love the most! This giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY!! :)

I really like the double-sided mother of pearl photo bracelet. It’s actually a great gift idea for my mother-in-law, who lives in Hungary, so she would always have a picture of the boys to look at on her wrist!

After looking at all the different pieces on the website, my favorite is actually the mother of pearl one! Just like the one you got. It’s very elegant and unique.
