Contributing for Pretty Fluffy, post #4
I've always been a admirer of small charms, trinkets, and keepsakes that hold a special meaning. When it comes to pets though, lets face it, it's hard to find quality products that aren't, dare I say... tacky. That being said, I'm sure you can understand how very excited we were when Jessica, the founder and artist behind SilhouPETte, reached out to share some of her beautiful charm necklaces with us.
SilhouPETte offers both custom and breed-specific silhouette jewelry, with a vintage feel, to keep the love close to your heart. Available in both Sterling Silver and Gold-dipped Sterling Silver, these necklaces are sure to win you over.
The idea blossomed a couple of years ago when Jessica created a pet silhouette as a Christmas gift for her close friends. Her friends had tears of joy when they opened their gift, loving all of the intricate details of their 14 year-old Pomeranian. When Jessica saw how touched her friends were, she decided to share her talent with the rest of the word. And we are glad she did!

I had a wonderful time photographing these SilhouPETte necklaces. They are delicate, feminine, and can be dressed up or worn casually. These make the perfect gift for any animal lover and are a great way to honor the special pet in your life.
Jessica hopes that these original charms keep the special bond between you and your pet alive now
and forever. It's easy to see, through her work, that she truly appreciates the uniqueness of every individual pet.
"I’ve always adored great profiles and loved examining every little part of my cat’s: I knew the precise shape of the ridge on her nose, where her little white patch of fur began and ended on her chin, and exactly how the fluffy fur on her chest waved.
What’s wonderful and intriguing to me about animals is how they express endless and unconditional love. They hold no grudges, make no judgments, and love me just the way I am. It’s no wonder I have such a deep connection to my pets. Just seeing their image brings joy to my day and love to my heart."
