This sterling silver reliquary vessel was made to commemorate Jasmine, a sweet and beloved girl who is the love of her owners' lives! Her image is imprinted on the front and on the back, visible beneath thick glass, is some of her hair, fuzz and rubber from her toys.

A reliquary is defined as:

rel·i·quar·y

A receptacle, such as a coffer or shrine, for keeping or displaying sacred relics.

As any pet owner knows, our pets mean the world to us, and when they pass on, the hair, scraps from toys or blankets, a baby tooth, soil from a favorite park or burial site; it takes on a whole new meaning. This once meaningless ephemera becomes more precious than gold.

The pendant measures about 1 and 1/4" and comes on a 22" sterling silver rolo chain. Please send me a conversation to design your own custom portrait reliquary pendant.

 


Once you purchase a piece of pet portrait jewelry, please email me several of your favorite photographs (and tell me a story or two about your pet!).  I’ll turn your photo into a simple outline and then into a stamp, which is what I will use to texture the metal with your pet’s image.  You will receive a proof of the outline before I do any work in metal, which gives you the opportunity to request any tweaks or edits.

When selecting photographs, large, clear, high resolution photos are the best, with nothing cropped out.  The biggest image you can send me!  If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!
