Etched In Time

Create a timeless keepsake of your child's first years with this stunning custom etched pendant. Inspired by the birth of her own daughter, Virginia-based artist Laurel Denise wanted to capture the fleeting moments of childhood and meaningful bonds with a beautiful token that can be carried with you.

She begins the process by sketching a replica of your own personal photograph of your little one, family member, or friend. The image is then laser-etched into a 14k gold or sterling silver pendant, giving you a cherished memory that can stay close to your heart. Handmade in Virginia.

Laurel Denise

Artist and designer Laurel Denise creates glass pendant jewelry with a dreamy, mysterious, vintage-meets-modern look. Perhaps it is all the more fitting that her idea for this line of jewelry came to her in a dream.

After working in the corporate world for three years, she ditched her job to pursue a more creative life. Denise turned a small room into a studio and over several months developed her unique line from glass, sketches and beautiful gemstone, silver and gold accents.

The images on each piece is hand drawn by Denise on a tiny piece of paper with a tiny permanent pen. She hand cuts pieces of translucent glass by smoothing cutting and using small drills.

The image is placed between the glass and melted into a special compound that makes each pendant waterproof, durable, and smooth. Denise then adds the final touches of a chain or gemstone.

Denise graduated from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA with a studio art degree. She was raised in Charlottesville, VA and has lived in Hoboken, NJ for two years.
