What exactly IS photo jewelry, anyways?
Photo jewelry is a fun and easy craft that anyone can do! We sell blank photo pendants, photo rings, photo bracelets, photo charms, photo cufflinks, and more cool and unique photo products. All of the items have a blank area for a photo. We sell do it yourself kits with everything included that you need to make a complete photo item. We also sell the items individually if you are looking to purchase them without a kit.
How do you get the picture so small?
Long ago before our EZ photo resizer software existed, making your digital photos just the right size for photo jewelry could take hours of guesswork and printing, wasting what seems like zillions of sheets of photo paper only to still have them not fit right! With our EZ resizer software, all you do is select your photo, select the predefined size that goes with your product, and print! The corresponding size number will be on the items page next to the item number, and also listed on your invoice. Print ovals, circles, squares, and more! It's really that easy.
Okay..so after I print my pictures, then what? How do you seal the photo into the jewelry?
There are several options for completing your photo jewelry:
Krystal Clear-Itz ™:
Krystal Clear-Itz ™ are instant photo jewelry covers that do not require any dry time. You can create photo jewelry instantly for your clients at craft shows, art fairs, and other events. View Krystal Clear-Itz tutorial.
Once you print out your photo with our super easy EZ resizer software and place it into the blank photo area, cover it with the photo jewelry clear coating. It is a two part mixture that you mix together in the included mixing cups. Apply the necessary amount to the photo area and let dry 24-48 hours. That's it! See the photo jewelry clear coating tutorial for more information on how the clear coating works.
We carry glass and glass-like covers for selected items. Photo Jewelry Seal-Itz Tutorial.
I saw this blank pendant and it was really cute, but it doesn't come in a kit. How can I buy just a few individual pendants or charms and still get everything I need to make them?

to your order! It comes with everything you need to complete your items! Or if you are making a large quantity of photo jewelry you may consider purchasing the Large Basic Photo Jewelry Supplies Kit
Wow that seems really cool.. but what if I don't want to use the clear coating? Do you have any photo jewelry I can make?
We have a selection of EZ-change photo jewelry that is easy to make as a quick gift in a pinch. These items have a plastic sleeve that covers the photo and do not require any clear coating. See our selection of EZ- change photo jewelry!

What if I want to put something else into the photo frame besides a picture? Can I do that?
Absolutely! We have many customers that use our blank photo pieces for other craft projects such as inserting pieces of fabric, lace, buttons, beads, cameos, and more. The clear coating will hold into place most any object that you wish to put into a photo frame.
