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.

So Special

I wanted to get for myself with my Tankers on it and I came across this and it was just perfect. The box it came in had the picture that I sent to be used and the template that was made. It was such a nice touch and the pendant is beautiful and captures Tank so well!

An Everlasting Memorial

Completely happy with purchase, my wife just thought the pendant would be flat and lighter in weight for every day wear. No worries, she is happy with it, but wanted to wear more often.

This pendant is such a unique way to remember or honor a special pet. And, it looks like my cat! The quality is fabulous and it's such a magnificent way to remember my sweet kitty and keep her memory close to my heart. Erin is a fantastic artist - and just awesome to work with - she's patient and easy to communicate with as she gets your feedback and input during the creation process. Overall attention to detail is topped off by the thoughtful packaging. Would make a treasured gift. Highly recommended!!!

Beautiful Pendant

5

Erin was remarkably easy to work with. I sent her a photo of my daughter's cat and she made a beautiful rendition of it. To tell you the truth, it was so cute and life like that I will be sad to part with this beautiful piece of jewelry. When it arrived it came in a small round cardboard case which had a small opening that framed the picture that i sent her. It was a sweet touch. Additionally, she provides the casting that she made to create the pendant. She also includes a small note.
