After reading the reviews I was actually a bit worry about if I was going to be able to get a nice mini picture and about the struggle to inserted. But it was actually quite simple to minimize the photo and to inserted.
I’m very confused on how to get the right size for the picture i want to fit. What size does the picture need to be and where do i get a picture this small?
- Hi Karen, we recommend scaling the photo on your computer and printing it to insert into the charm. Please call our customer service at 800-283-1770 if you have any additional questions! - James Avery Team
I just bought this frame today, I tried to get a picture printed from Walgreens and they informed me that they don't make pictures this small. Is there a company that I can use to print the picture? Please advise.

So I just bought this charm in the buy two get one free sale and I am unsure how I’m supposed to take out the tray and I’m scared to keep trying because I think I will break it. Any help?!
- Hi Kwanae! With this charm you will just slide out the paper with the logo via the slot on top of the charm and then slide your photo in. Your local James Avery store will be able to assist you with this if you are still having difficulty! - James Avery Team
My brother passes away last year and wanted something to have him always with me. This picture frame is perfect! I felt so emotional when I saw how it looked on my bracelet.
My favorite charm!
My boyfriend got me this charm for Valentine’s Day and printed some pictures for me to put inside. Best advice is to put some tape over the picture to protect it from getting ruined. This charm is so creative and thoughtful I love it!
Love it, but not water resistant
I got this for Christmas from my fiance and we put his picture inside. I had to create a word document and set the dimensions of the picture to about a half an inch by a third of an inch (it needs to be paper thin essentially and I would print lots of copies since it needs to be replaced almost daily). The only problem I had with it is that it's pretty hard to get the picture in there, and there's also no barrier like glass or plastic like an actual frame. I've seen someone say there was plastic on theirs, but mine didn't come with that. So it really isn't water resistant at all, so when I wash my hands it pretty much ruins the picture. However its's sentimental and I love it.
There are a couple of design flaws that make this charm extremely frustrating.
1. It is very hard to remove the clip so you can insert a picture. It gets blocked by the charm loop.
2. If your picture is not printed on thin paper you will not be able to insert the clip back in without tearing up the picture. And by tear I mean destroy it!
A nice idea but too many frustrations to keep much less give as a gift. Even the salesperson agreed that the design is not the best. Hope they improve it!

Favorite charms on my bracelet!
I have two picture frame charms to represent both my children. I love them. They are my favorite charms on my bracelet. I plan to purchase another to represent my grandchild. I printed the photo off my computer on the paint program that is already installed on there. It allows you to minimize the picture without loosing resolution.
Wish it could be designed better!!
I got this from my daughter to add to my grandmother charm bracelet. She had my grandsons picture put in it. I was so disappointed when I washed my hands and water got in the frame and ruined my picture. I now have a photo frame charm with no picture. Had I known it would do that I would not have it on my bracelet. Hope James Avery can come up with a better design to be water proof.
Great photo charm!
I bought this charm for my mommy themed bracelet! I went to Walgreens to print out an index photo print and it fits PERFECTLY well! I love it!
My boys bought this one for me for Christmas in 2008, complete with a picture of our favorite dog inside.
It certainly is among my most sentimental pieces.
You can put so many different things inside....a favorite scripture, your child's birthdate or anything you wish.
Very nice piece.
I bought this to go on an assorted charm necklace in memory of my son. I took it to Walgreens and they made a picture just the right size I'm currently buying charms and chains to match mine so my family and I can share this in his memory!
My Mom bought this charm for me for my charm bracelet that I started for my son, I do love this charm dearly however it was tough to get a photo small enough. I finally was able to have one made at Walgreens. You have to have a "preview" page printed of your image and then cut the image to fit inside. I used the small plastic photo protector inside to use as a cutting guide. My only other issue is that I wear my bracelet all the time and I wash my hand constantly so sometimes water seems to get into the charm so maybe the design could be perfected to correct this problem but thankfully I had many pictures printed to allow a swap of the photo should one ever be ruined. Otherwise this is the most beautiful charm I have ever owned and I love to look down and see my son's sweet face. He even looks for the "baby" on Mommy's bracelet.
Best charm ever!!!!!!!
i recently bought this charm for myself and i wanted it because i have this pic that i wanted to have every close to my heart my bf wasn't just my bf i didn't meet him and we started dating i met him when i was six years old and he is my best friend just a friend that i hang out with played video games talk to about my most private feeling and he did as well the memories i have are very special to my heart and i want to have a picture of the two of us and to know that we were just best friends at one time to remember our childhood together and now well now he 's the love of my life and i hope to share the rest of my life with him I LOVE James Avery!!!!!!
I got this charm for Christmas last year! I was able to get a picture I had down to it's smallest size, then took it to Walgreens, and they shrunk it down even smaller so that it would fit. After that, I was able to put the picture of my Granny and Pappa into the charm! I wear it on my charm bracelet!
