What a great time for photocrafters! June is full of opportunities for photocrafting gifts — think June weddings, Father’s Day, graduations. Are you new to photocrafting and a little worried that it might be too much work? Shel found a wonderful site, ShoreCrafty, on Etsy that offers perfect possibilities. It’s as easy as selecting one photo and sending it off.
Shel says first pick out the jewelry item you want. She chose the beaded photo bracelet for her mom for Mother’s Day. (Note that the particular bracelet Shel ordered is no longer available.) When you have put the item in your cart and checked out, the site instructs you to “attach your photo to ‘Message Seller’ after purchase using the ‘ATTACH IMAGE’ link.” Shel says when you purchase the bracelet, right under the total there’s a place to “contact the shop” and it basically opens a message. That’s how you attach the photo. Be sure to send an uncropped image.
ShoreCrafty determines the correct cropping for you. Shel was very happy with the bracelet when it arrived. It looked just like the one she saw on the ShoreCrafty site on Etsy. Shel thought the quality looked good too. Her mom says she’s wearing the bracelet and it’s “great.”
ShoreCrafty has more photo jewelry gifts than we can list. Here are a couple ideas — Create a bracelet for the mother or grandmother of the bride and groom. Instead of a child’s photo as Shel used, perhaps pick one of the couple who is getting married. Make cuff links for your dad for Father’s day, maybe a son on one and a daughter on the other? (Or mother and child?) Give the college graduate a charm to remember. ShoreCrafty also does charms for a Pandora bracelet which is very special gift for adding to a Pandora collection. Charms are also a marvelous idea for multiple grandchildren or children.
ShoreCrafty offers a very easy way to create a personalized photocraft gift. Shel says if you’d like to make it even more personal, order a photo charm and then make your own bracelet! Whatever you do, it will be a special treasure for the recipient!
