Photo and Painting Jewelry

I've developed a way to make jewelry out of round photos and paintings attached to clear glass gems.

I'm putting together a catalog/gallery (W.I.P.) of images to choose from: [link]

What makes an image good for jewelry?
-New deviation
-Dreamlike elegant fantasy feeling
-Simple enough to still distinguish at 3 cm
-No important design elements near the edges
-No fanart or anything not created by you
-A link to my page with a brief description

Terms and Conditions (Just so we're both on the same page)

1. I will do the following:
-Print it out, attach it to a glass gem, wrap it into a piece of jewelry.
-Use photos of the jewelry to promote my art.
-Use small thumbnails of your art to show people they can order it as jewelry.
-Credit you whenever your art appears.
-Pay you your rate (through PayPal) whenever I sell jewelry made with your image. (or make jewelry with your image intending to not sell it.)
-Not use your art for any other purposes

2. If one of us decides to end the arrangement:
-I will immediately remove any thumbnails promoting your image.
-Existing pieces and photographs will still exist.
-I will finish any current orders involving your image, but won't accept any new ones.
-Any pieces made for in-person sales will still be offered for sale.

Questions or comments?
If you see something in these terms that you don't like or if I didn't word something clearly, you're welcome to ask me about it.

I'd like to give this a try, though I ain't invited and I'm rather new to dA. It seems like a fun challenge and it's a great idea!

Give it a shot!

I'd recommend some sort of landscape without pencil lines. (I like the sky in your unicorn picture.)

If you like writing, you could put together a short, stylized block of text on PowerPoint.

You could also try photography.

I draw a lot of eyes, think you can use some? Landscapes aren't really my strong side...

... though writing is. Short poems and verse would work, right?

As soon as I get a camera!

Thank you for inviting me. I might be interested, but I need some time to think if it's really what I want. Could I contact you later if I do decide to go with it? :aww:

Whenever you want. :) Just save a link to this page or my account, so you'll know how to find me later.

I don't know why I didn't read the description the first time D: I think this is really cool, actually. Do you get lots of sales? I'd be interested in participating in the future, but I cant right now <:c

My scraps folder has all my photos of finished commissions. I wouldn't call it "a lot", but that's only because I'm always striving to reach more customers. I don't think I'll ever call it "a lot" until I'm so swamped that I have to double the price and start opening limited commission slots.

Feel free to submit as many as you want! I tried to design this to be pretty low-maintenance on both sides. The extensive terms of service is just so I don't get charged with art theft because a 14-year-old misunderstood something.

Wow! Im very interested! Thank you for telling me about this.
Starlit-Sorceress's avatar
Awesome! I'd like to start getting some examples in the catalog/gallery to show other prospective submitters.

Oooh. Cool! If I were to draw something for this, what do you think your clientelle would most appreciate?

I'm still trying to figure out how to describe what I'm looking for. Basically any image that would enhance and complement my jewelry designs. Elegant and pretty. Fantasy-like (but not bizarre or weirdly surreal.)

Looking through your gallery...I really like this style: [link]

Also, I'm sure a wolf portrait or two would go over pretty well. :D
