My Mother's Day Collection by Melissa

Growing up through Jeanine Payer

Back in 1999, I purchased my first Jeanine Payer piece at Neiman Marcus (the necklace shown in photo, far left). It was a silver pod-like pendant which revealed a tiny antique photo of a baby with handpainted gold angel wings. 11 years later when I had my son, I had the original photo replaced by a custom photo of him smiling for the first time. This began my collection of photo necklaces, which showcases my little boy in different stages of his toddlerhood. By wearing my custom photo necklaces, I feel part of him is magically with me at all times.
