Pet Forever-Memorial Pendants
Because you gave them a "Forever Home"
Here are four pendant styles to showcase your pet's photo in a unique "mini-collage" memorial pendant. These pendants are individually hand crafted to your specifications, using pure copper, brass and nickel silver. Each style will carry your pet's name, and has either a plain coiled-wire or beaded-wire bail (as you choose). All styles can be made in slightly smaller dimensions, if you prefer.
If your pendant is a memorial of a pet who has passed away, I can include ashes from your pet's cremation in the bezel under his/her photo. The bezel is sealed in transparent resin for permanent protection.
All pendant styles are most attractively worn on a neck ring.
*Please note that the memorial pendants pictured are style samples only, and are not for sale*
How do I order a custom pendant?
- Review the styles of memorial pendants that we offer, and choose your favorite. Then contact me to discuss your favorite colors (to be used in the background of the photo, and in the beaded bail), any special wording you might like to include, or any other personal preferences. Each piece will be individually cut and hand crafted from start to finish, so variations are to be expected in the final memorial pendant.
- From your personal photo collection, choose a picture of your pet that will be used for the pendant; a headshot is preferable. Your photo must be very clear and sharp; the image will be reduced to less than a quarter of its original size (for a standard 4" x 6" print). However, I am able to work from almost any size print that you have. I'll use the reduced photo to create a unique "mini-collage."
- The photo collage will become the focal point of your memorial pendant. I'll add your pet's name, finish the pendant with a coordinating bail, and you'll have a beautiful piece of personalized jewelry to wear as a lovely, forever-memory of your cat or dog.
- If you prefer, I'll send you a sketch of the proposed design of the memorial pendant before starting work so you can approve any adjustments to the basic style.

"Heart of Love" pendant (for a cat or dog)
This heart-shaped option may be crafted with other bail styles; we'll design to your preference.
"Crystal Collage" Cat or Dog pendant
For this style, we'll use your photo to create a mini-collage that is set behind a faceted crystal pendant, then add a one-of-a-kind coiled wire and bead bail. Please specify your preferred background color and optional text. The color of the beads used for the bail will match the background color.
