        Photo Tips for Perfect Silhouettes

        • Place subject in front of a well-lit background, facing either left or right.
        • Only one side of the face must show on the photo and entire head should be in the photo.
        • A relaxed face helps to show the features (eyelashes, nose, lips) more realistically although smiling faces are cute too. It's up to you how you want to photograph them.
        • Pictures taken with a phone camera work too. Just make sure to take the photos in good lighting, during the daytime is preferred.
        • If photographing more than one person, take individual pictures.
        • Remember to take the picture straight at eye level with the person you are photographing, standing about 2-4 feet away.
        • If person has long hair (past the shoulder line) put it up. Ponytails, braids, messy buns really do make for cute silhouettes and add character to the final silhouette.
        • For full body silhouettes, take a picture of the people standing, walking away or towards the camera. This works well when photographing siblings.
        • When photographing babies, try taking the picture when they are asleep. Hold the camera directly above their face, with only one side of the face showing.

        So in love!!!

        I absolutely love this chain! I was struggling to wear my two boys silhouettes separate because my chains would tangle and I haven’t taken this one off since having both charms put on it! I love it so much!

        Paper clip necklace

        I was a bit disappointed in the size of the links. The necklace above appears to have larger links. Also the necklace seems to be tarnishing which surprised me because it’s 14k white gold. Maybe I ordered the wrong necklace. I will have to go out to the website to look further. Victoria M

        Dear Victoria, This is Vana, the owner of VCS. I am sorry to hear you aren't completely happy with the chain. The chain you received it what was ordered and what our photos show. We don't make the dainty paper clip chain any smaller. Also, make sure you didn't mean to order the medium weight which has larger links. Regarding the chain tarnishing, 14K gold doesn't tarnish. I checked and you did order the 14K white gold. All our white gold chains are also rhodium plated. Over time rhodium wears off and we can happily replate it for you. This is completely normal and not an issue with the chain but rather depends on how the piece is worn. Just like our wedding rings, white gold will look doll if not replated over time. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally if you have other issues. Thank you.
