A Friendly Face

Your special pet has always been one gem of a friend to you, so why not show them off for the special treasure they are? Designer Erin Harris makes it possible by transforming a photo of your furry or feathered friend into a custom piece of jewelry.

To create this personalized, sterling silver necklace, Harris works from a photograph of your pet, first transferring the image by hand onto a customized rubber stamp. That stamp is then used to emboss the image into the domed surface of the pendant. The artist then engraves your pet's image directly onto the silver. On the flat, reverse side of the pendant, Harris can imprint the animal's name, birth date, adoption date, or other meaningful phrase up to 12 characters. The result is a precious keepsake that will last a lifetime, celebrating your bond with a treasured animal. Harris also includes the rubber stamp, which you can use to personalize cards, scrapbooks and more. Handmade in Montpelier, Vermont.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Erin Harris

Studio jewelry erin l. m. harris (who doesn’t capitalize her name) has always loved creating.Erin’s education includes a Masters Degree in Social Work. This background, coupled with the unexpected loss of a special dog, Gonzo, led her to create the work she is most passionate about: Memorial and commemorative jewelry. Devastated by his absence, she needed a tangible reminder of the dog who had been her shadow, so she designed a piece of jewelry that allowed her a way to keep her friend with her at all times. She created a reliquary, a sealed vessel containing some of his hair, fuzz from his tennis ball, and soil from his burial site. This pendant allowed her to carry his memory close to her heart.

erin specializes in sentimental jewelry. Her ever expanding line includes pictorial pendants with the imprinted image of a beloved pet, as well as lockets and reliquaries that contain unexpected treasures: a scrap of fabric, a lock of hair or tuft of fur, soil from a favorite park or final resting ground, -cherished relics from a loved one. She creates jewelry to honor life’s milestones and memories. Each piece is made with a great amount of time, care and emotion, ever mindful of the pet, person, or memory being honored. Her jewelry invites you to “wear your love” collection

      The quality and artistry is simply amazing, and the artist is simply talented and lovely. She truly captured my baby girl's essence. I am able to keep my departed cat with me at all times with this pendant, and I am so grateful for this unique and meaningful way to always have her by my side despite her passing. Others have found the likeness outstanding, too, so it's not just a grieving kitty-mama's opinion. Thank you for offering this product and for finding such a wonderful artist to provide it!

            I wanted something to remember my kitty who passed away earlier this year and I happened to come across this in the Uncommon Goods catalog that I happened to get in the mail and I thought this was perfect. EXCELLENT FOLLOW-UP: After I ordered it, I sent in the photo I wanted to use and I received a follow-up email with 2 sample layouts so that I could select which one I wanted to use and then received another confirmation email with the layout I chose. EXCELLENT PRESENTATION: The actual package I received was lovely. It came in an adorable box with the photo I selected on the front and inside it was wrapped in tissue with a little poem and the actual imprint mold that was used to create the necklace.
            The only negative comment I would have is that the pendant is a little bit bigger than I thought it would be but I'm assuming its because it needs to be large enough to imprint the image onto it. Overall, it is a lovely necklace and I'm really happy that I purchased it.

                Although meant for a woman, my husband wears a longer necklace under his shirt as a good luck charm. What better lucky token than our beloved, dog Otto. I had several email exchanges with the artist who was so nice, and even offered to use a more masculine and longer chain, knowing it was for my husband.

                      My sister had lost her beloved Boston terrier a short time ago and I wanted to give her something to commemorate how special he was. I found Erin's work while searching online and am so glad I did! She worked with me every step of the way and I ended up selecting a piece created using a custom picture. Erin sent me a proof of the pendant and it was beautiful. My sister cried when she received it and it will be a gift she will treasure for the rest of time. Even the box that it came in was lovely! The process could not have been more pleasant. Erin cares and that comes through. She goes over and beyond to make sure you love her work and make you feel like her only customer!

                        After we had to let our beloved Maggie go after her battle with renal failure, I knew I wanted a necklace with her on it. I searched online for months! When I found this necklace, I knew it was the right one. Erin wanted to know some of Maggie's characteristics - she was so personable! I felt like she knew Maggie. She captured her personality in a sketch, which is amazing to me! Months later, I still love this necklace and wear it almost daily. I would highly recommend this artisan to anyone who wants a special and unique memory of a special furry family member.

                          I absolutely love my necklace. I always get so many compliments on it and everyone asks me where I got it. I've even made more of my dog to give as gifts. I used one on a key ring for a really cool keychain. It's a definite plus for any animal lover to be used as just a daily reminder or as a memorial. It's definitely my favorite necklace that I own. Thank you so much for this amazing custom necklace of my dog!
