At a craft show a year ago, a woman had a booth where she could take photos and etch them on to various shaped pendants, such as dogtag-shaped ones. She also said she could transfer colored photos to pendants, only they were sealed on to the pendant similar to laminating. I lost her brochure, but found the company that wholesales the machines and blank pendants. It is AKMjewelry.com. I wrote to ask if they had any dealers in Minnesota because I wanted to feel how heavy the pendants would be if they were hanging on my ears. The one dealer did not have the machine that did colors, so forget him. I was thinking I could take a photo of Freddie (the statue pose probably), shrink it on the copier, take it to Office Max and have them laminate it adding some kind of thicker paper as backing, snip the corners so they would be smooth, punch a hole in it at the top and put dangle earrings posts in them, and there you have it. Any other ideas, anyone?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
