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 Richmond, 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”
