Final Pendant

Final Pendant

No request is too big or small for us to tackle in our state of the art jewelery shop. Over the years we have made a wide variety of custom items that started with a client's dream. A gentlemen stopped in with a very sentimental request. On his first with his wife, she was wearing a pendant, in the shape of a bird on a double chain. The bird was made of base metal with plating, which had worn off over the years.

My client wanted to reproduce the piece using silver, for an anniversary gift. After much research to figure out the best method for reproducing the bird accurately, we had a silicone mold made of the original pendant. After having the mold made, we had a new bird cast in sterling silver. We then looked at many chains to reproduce the double chain look of the original piece. For a final touch, we added a sapphire for the eye of the sterling silver bird. 

The sentiment attached to creating custom made jewelery for an upcoming anniversary while helping the client create new memories is one of my favorite parts of being a jeweler.
