Why do we decorate? We do it to lift our spirits, to revel in the season, and to enjoy the happy memories that are best made during special times of year. One way to create meaningful decorations, some of which last a lifetime, is to craft your own jewelry or ornaments.
The personalized effort and time it takes to build something with your hands really imbues it with your own special qualities, truly making it your own.
But what better way to personalize jewelry or ornaments than with family photos? Incorporating a family photo into a hanging pendant or ornament is one way to make it forever your own, while also bringing to mind the special memory that the photo signifies. And if you can jazz up that pendant or ornament with crystals, so much the better; you can create something that not only has great sentimental value, but which is also beautiful in its own right.
