I'm still here, working hard in my workshop to finalize Christmas orders without the help of elves and with the baby's due date looming on the horizon. But sometimes I get such creative requests for custom orders that I just have to tell you about them.
A gentleman in Oslo found me on the internet and inquired about having custom jewelry made from a heart design he has created using his girlfriend's initials (VB). After reviewing the options he commissioned me to make two different pendants out of his love logo.
I made the first pendant from PMC using a custom texture sheet. Having a tile shape for a background and a rustic finish, it is kind of a casual look so we decided to put it on a chocolate brown leather cord.
For the next pendant I cut three pieces of sterling silver wire, beveled and filed the ends, and soldered them together. Then I hung it slider-style on a box chain for a more delicate look.
These pieces are on their way to Norway and hopefully VB doesn't read my blog before Christmas.
I think my client should pitch the logo to the Beckhams now.
