Growing up I always took art classes and would make jewelry for fun, and began to teach myself how to paint after college. When I started selling my art at street festivals I realized I wanted to pursue being a full time artist. I opened up my Etsy shop in 2008, which at that point featured my angel, fairy, and cat art, made into jewelry and ornaments as well. My shop evolved over the years while I moved around as a military wife and had my children.
I relaunched my shop in 2019 with some new lockets that had caught my eye, after making one for myself. I quickly found myself crafting lockets for customers who wanted their photos inside but had no idea how to go about doing it. After years of working with professionally printed art, I put my skills into creating photos for the lockets that were top quality, protected by a clear cover to ensure their longevity and water resistance, and with a special adhesive on the back.
I have worked with thousands of photos and put my Photoshop skills to work to make sure that each photo looks amazing in person! I love interacting with my customers and hearing all the meaningful stories behind the lockets. I appreciate each and every locket I get to craft, and treasure being able to preserve special memories in a tangible way that someone can wear or keep with them forever.
I am very excited to be launching two new lines of lockets that feature my own engraving design on the front, in sterling silver and rose gold/gold filled. These lockets are true heirlooms that will last for generations to come! I still enjoy painting when I get the chance, so you will find whimsical art items in my shop as well. Creating custom pet Christmas ornaments is my other passion!
