Dotty About Phoebe, 'Artwork Charm' | Review

26.8.17


Dotty About Phoebe is run by mum of two Gemma, who started Dotty about Phoebe last year, while on Maternity leave with her youngest daughter.
 "I have always loved keepsake jewellery and first discovered it after losing our first baby in 2011 - it was the only tangible item we had that proves he existed. Our eldest daughter was born in 2013 at 23 weeks gestation & since having her I wanted to work for myself doing something that made me happy & what fitted around her numerous appointments." 
So last year she trained in keepsake jewellery, and that's how Dotty About Phoebe began! They use 99.9% fine silver to create all of the hand, foot and fingerprint jewellery. This is the purest silver available, and it preserves the most amount of detail in the prints.

Gemma got in touch after she spotted the picture I shared of my daughter's family portrait. It's a piece of artwork I know I'm going to cherish forever, but most likely hidden away in a drawer and never seen again (especially if I want to keep it safe!). So when she offered to create a charm with the drawing on, of course I said yes!


The process of sorting the charm was really easy. All I did was email over a copy of the artwork, and Gemma got to work. When you buy an artwork or handwriting charm, you will receive an order form in the post an order to complete. You can then either send a copy of the artwork back in the prepaid envelope or email like I did. Easy!

I was thrilled when my package arrived, as I couldn't wait to see how it turned out. It was presented beautifully in it's own little gift box complete with ribbon. The charm come attached to a jump ring (so I can thread it onto a bracelet or necklace), but I do wish I opted to get it added to a carrier charm so I can thread it onto my Pandora bracelet.


Overall I'm actually really impressed with how the charm came out. Especially as the image was quite large to fit onto a small charm. Okay, so if you hadn't seen the drawing first, you probably wouldn't know what it was supposed to be. But to me, I know that it's of Indie's very first family portrait. And that's what makes it so special!

I'm very impressed with the quality too. It feels strong and well made, and I'm not worried about it being damaged - unlike the original artwork. I do think it would look better if it was a fingerprint or writing - but like I said above, I think the fact that it's my child's artwork adds to it's 'charm'.

I received this charm in exchange for my review. All opinions are honest and my own.
