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.

It was the memory of a dear friend that turned erin l. m. harris into a self-described “sentimental metalsmith.” After her beloved dog Gonzo died in 2008, the Vermont artist was moved to commemorate furry friends. When starting one of her pictorial pieces, “I imagine someone who adores their pet,” she says. ”I imagine how much comfort the jewelry will give them if their pet has recently departed this earth. If their pet is still alive and well, I imagine the look of surprise, delight and glee when they open the package and say, ‘It looks just like him!’" Indeed, animal lovers often send erin testimonials. One man revealed that his wife told him the pendant was the most thoughtful gift he’d given her in their 20-year history. “I’ve had many reactions that have made me cry,” she says.
