Memorial Pendant
Custom  · 22. September 2018
I created this lovely pendant a short while ago as a memorial piece.

Together we were able to create a beautiful pieces that can be worn everyday in memory of their lost loved one.

I am staring out the passenger window. I have checked the address we were given and noted that there was no directional advice from our starting point other than it would seem like we were heading to nowhere in the desert for twenty minutes until we came across a building and at that point we will have arrived.

After a consult with details about ring size and width I made some sketches for the customer to choose a design from. After she decided on the design I got to work carving.

When incorporating old jewellery to create a new piece there are a lot of factors to...

A couple of us here at Jewel Envy have doing a little bit of experimenting with adding a black finish to metal surfaces. Typically patinas such as liver of sulphur or commercially made products like Jax silver blackener can be used to dip the metal in to build up a gun metal/black colour. There is also black rhodium plating, which is applied with an electric current like other colours of gold plating. Patinas and plating are wonderful for pieces of jewellery that are worn on parts of the bod...

I have been sitting with ideas and letting them percolate lately. A large part of my creative process doesn't always appear the most creative - to an outsider it's me sitting quietly staring out into space. This morning I sipped my coffee and got to thinking about this year's entry into Jewel Envy's themed competition Winter Wedding. Things are starting to form in my mind...
