Artist's Statement: I've always loved creating. From the first time my parents hung one of my childhood scribbles on the fridge, I realized I also love to make art for others.
My education includes a Masters Degree in Social Work. This background, couple with the unexpected loss of a special dog, Gonzo, let me to create the work I am most passionate about: Memorial and Commemorative jewelry.
I am a sentimental metalsmith. I design and create meaningful jewelry to honor life's milestones and memories. Each piece is made with a great deal of time, care, and emotion, ever mindful of the pet, person or memory being honored. My jewelry invites you to "wear your love".
Once we receive your order, we will contact you to get your photograph*.
A pendant for those of us who love our pets and aren't afraid to show it!

Made of sterling silver, they are domed and imprinted with a likeness of your pet on one side with a flat back perfect for adding your beloved pet's name or nickname (up to 12 characters) or the birthday/adoption day.
To make the piece, artist e.l.m. harris works from your personal photograph to create a black and white image of your pet. She then creates, by hand, a stamp that she uses to impress the metal. This stamp with your customized pet's image is included, so you can stamp any stamp-able surface with your pet's lovely face!
