The definition of ‘fusion’ is the merging of different elements into a union. Vicky Baptist, of Knox Photo Fusion has successfully merged her love of photography into beautiful works of wearable art.
Vicky began her Photo Fusion endeavor three years ago. A long-time children’s photographer, she said her goal was to be working in artistic photography. It was when she saw painted jewelry that she thought, “I wonder if you could use photographs?”
After a year of trial and error, Vicky was able to integrate her artistic photographs with jewelry. All the photographs used to create the jewelry are things that Vicky has taken pictures of.
“People like to guess what it is and they want to know the story behind it,” Vicky said. For example, when she created the breast cancer awareness design last year, she photographed pink impatiens. She said she used impatiens because of their resilience and their symbolic renewal of spring.
Vicky can also do custom jewelry work. Customers bring in a photos and Vicky works magic to re-size, re-shape, crop and Photoshop the pictures to create ornaments, earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, cufflinks, wine tags, key chains, barrettes, headbands, pet collar charms and bookmarks.
Looking for unique bridesmaid gifts or keepsakes? Do you want your company logo on something timeless? Knox Photo Fusion has done it all. “We have something for everybody,” Vicky said.
