PhotoJewelryMaking.com Frequently Asked Questions
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, European photo bead bracelets, floating locket charms, slide bracelets and charms, wedding items, and more cool and unique photo products. All of the items have a blank area for a photo. We sell many different sizes of do it yourself kits. These kits include everything that you need to make a complete item. Our products are also sold ala carte if you are looking to purchase them separate from a kit.
How do you get the picture so small?
Before our EZ Photo Resizer Software existed, making your digital photos just the right size for photo jewelry could take hours of guesswork and wasting paper only to still have them not fit right! With our EZ resizer software, all you do is select your photo, insert the size for your product, and print! The corresponding size will be on the items page next to the item number, as well as listed on your invoice. You can also make custom sizes for other projects, such as printing an image to fit perfectly into a scrapbook template, resizing images to wallet size, etc.
Okay..so after I print my pictures, then what? How do you seal the photo into the jewelry?
Our products use a couple of quick and easy methods.
Seal-Itz: For our jewelry with glass covers, use Seal-Itz strips. Seal-Itz strips are ultra strong double sided clear adhesiive strips that seal the glass to the photo, and the glass/photo piece into the frame. Here is a link to our Seal-Itz Strips Photo Tutorial.
If an item does not come with Seal-Itz strips, they can be purchased separately here.
Krystal Clear-Itz ™: Krystal Clear-Itz ™ are instant solid acrylic photo jewelry covers. You can create photo jewelry instantly for your clients at craft shows, art fairs, and other events. Here is a link to our Krystal Clear-Itz photo tutorial. For best results, we recommend using a Seal-Itz strip for adhering the covered photo into the frame as the adehsive is very strong. You can also use your own glue for this step if you wish.
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.
Do you offer wholesale pricing?
Yes we do! Just follow the instructions on this page and we will get the info right over to you :) Photo Jewelry Wholesale Pricing Info
