The classic locket in which we keep our gorgeous children close to us at all times is a wonderful tradition but we always love seeing updates, from custom Instagram  photo necklaces to USB necklaces with hundreds of photos of your beloved brood. There’s also the awesome embroidered portrait necklaces from Dandelyne and now we’ve turned up another great find for you in the form of Todd Borka’s fabulous wooden customizable portrait pendants.

These are a wonderful gift for the mom who wants a more modern version of personalized keepsake jewelry to flaunt her kids, or the family that’s already thinking ahead to Mother’s Day. I can also see this being a super cool replacement for your tween’s best friend necklaces.

The pendant is made of a wooden disc with your photo illustrated in Todd’s very cool, almost Simpsonsesque style, then strung on a silver-colored brass chain. Todd even puts a little heart on the other side of the disc, if you like. Aww.

For a custom piece, the process is quite simple–and fast. Just send in your photo and in a week you should have your piece. Sweet. All just for $35 for a great Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day gift.
