676.03   Objects incorporating photographs >  An introduction to photo-jewelry 
During the nineteenth century photo-jewelry was made using a variety of photographic types. Daguerreotypes and tintypes, also known as melainotypes, which used metal were ideal because of their durability and could be easily cut to size but other forms were used including glass-based ambrotypes. By floating the collodion image from a glass plate onto a ceramic one and then sealing it with glazes and a heat treatment durable photographs were created. Salt prints, albumen prints, gelatin silver prints and or paper based photographs could be used but they were not as long-lasting.[1]
