Classic meets Modern. We have taken a traditional piece of jewelry & a classic silhouette and merged the two together for a keepsake that you will love wearing! Our lockets are minimal & lightweight; perfect to wear all day. Inside you will have a detailed silhouette of your little one (or loved one, pets included!) Each silhouette is hand illustrated to showcase every detail of your child’s features from their sweet nose and eyelashes to hair whispies and curls.
Your silhouettes will be printed and carefully adhered inside of the locket. An ECO & non-toxic, clear resin will go over top in order to seal and protect the silhouette. The silhouette will not be removable.
· 1-1/4 inch brushed brass locket (it is antique-like and may have small imperfections that add to its charm)
· 14k gold fill chain
· 30″ long and either clasp-less or with a clasp (this style will allow the locket to be removable)
The space for the silhouette picture is the size of a quarter, so take a look at Mr. George Washington’s face and you will see approximately how big your silhouette will be. I can fit up to 4 faces per side (there is a left side and a right side to the locket). Of course they will be much smaller, if fitting more than 1 per side. Also, the right side is the side attached to the chain.
Also, take note of your children’s hair – if you have a child with really long hair (longer than 4-5 inches past the shoulders), in order to have them fit inside of the locket, they will have to be small. And therefore any siblings will have to be made small so they are proportionate. If you have multiple children, some with short hair, some with long hair, I suggest having the long hair pulled up so all silhouettes can be a nice size inside of the locket.
Please see the Submitting Photos page for more helpful tips on taking a great photo in order to give you a realistic & beautiful final portrait — plus instructions on how to submit your photos. Once you place an order you will receive an email confirmation. There will also be instructions in there.
Guess what! Given how detailed each silhouette is, we feel your portraits deserve a place in the locket AND on your wall. Therefore, we will include a complimentary 5×7 print version of each silhouette inside of the locket! If you would like a name or wreath on the print, you must include that info at the time your order is placed or when you send your photos. If not, the print will be classic black with no name and no wreath.
