We can personalise many of our lockets for you, using a carefully designed technique to transfer your photographs onto the metal of the pendant itself, for a really soft and unique vintage effect. Parts of your image will merge with the golden brass behind, creating a very beautiful, ununsual and ethereal look.
You have the option of choosing photographs, the message(s) of your choice, or a combination both.
After placing your order, all you need to do is message or email me your chosen images, in the best resolution you have, and I will take care of the rest! In terms of picture quality, most photos taken on smartphones will be perfectly fine!
*** Please note that this ADD ON service must be bought alongside one of our current lockets. We regret that we cannot offer this service for lockets bought previously, whether from Silk Purse, Sow's Ear or elsewhere. ***
Please bear in mind that the photos will be trimmed to heart-shape to fit in this locket ... so some background space is useful! Please allow 10 days for preparation and dispatch of your locket.
Some Tips for Choosing a Good Photo:
- Consider the shape of the locket, and how your photo might fit into that shape.
- Some background (not necessarily a lot!) is helpful - it might be difficult to work with a photo which is cropped very closely.
- Very pale, 'washed out' or overexposed images won't work very well.
Please allow up to 10 days for your locket to be made.
