Part 1 of 2
Photo jewelry is a wonderful custom jewelry niche because many people enjoy wearing mementos of those they love. I once fixed a photo glass bubble bracelet for someone who clearly adored Elvis Presley!
There are some photo jewelry tutorials on the internet which I gathered together in a past post How to Make Photo Jewelry Tutorials. Supplies though are a different matter. When PhotoJewelryMaking.com contacted me about a giveaway, I was delighted to find that they supply just about anything you need for making fast and easy photo jewelry.
They bill themselves as the world's largest photo jewelry supply superstore. They're not kidding either. PJM has so many product lines - individual items as well as numerous kits, you'll have to check it out yourself because I cannot possibly cover it all in a single post. They also offer bulk discounts and even a reseller's program for those who wish to specialize in this niche.
This is a family run small business started in 2004 by husband and wife Mark and Sue in the Metro Detroit area. PJM only sold Italian Photo Charms (shown above) in the beginning but the business soon expanded. As they grew, they've had to hired more employees including their own children Judy and Adam!
If you've tried making a digital image fit a frame, then you know how hard it is to print it just so. PJM's photo resizing software makes this task easier. They also supply the instant seal water resistant photo paper to print on.
One of the neatest products is their new line of Instant Photo Jewelry. These allow you to make photo jewelry in minutes - perhaps while the customer waits. Check out the video and see how amazingly easy it is.
PJM is giving away a $25 shopping spree certificate for one lucky winner! To enter, all you you have to do is make a comment below. Extra entries if you become or are a blog subscriber or follower or also on Facebook Fan page or Twitter. The giveaway ends in a week's time at 6 pm EST Monday September 20. I will pick a winner randomly and announce the results as soon as possible after.
