I wanted to create a piece that would be the perfect frame for an engraving and equally be a beautiful piece without.
I was inspired by the vintage cut edge mirrors that I have all over my house, and I love the little metal details that hold the mirrors to the back board. Hence the scallop shell caps that adorn the four corners of the pendant. The same scallop shell that is echoed in my Baroque Rectangle pendant.
The loop has a faint floral detail, as if lace has been pressed into its surface. I wanted to create the illusion of faded grandeur.
The pendant sits on an English made twisted curb chain.
There is a small plaque on the back with the hallmark and you will receive an authenticity hallmark card, detailing the marks and their meaning.
You can order this piece in three ways:
Plain - No engraving
Engraved in cursive font - as shown in the 'Mikaela' Engraving. There is no limit to the amount of words, as long as it fits in the space. When you place an order for this option, please write the engraving details into the 'special instructions for seller box'. Artwork is provided for your approval prior to the piece being made
Engraved with handwriting - The example shown is my late Grandma Bridie's handwriting. When she died I scanned and traced her writing from a birthday card and created engraved pieces for my Dad and Aunties so they could keep an essence of her close at all times. The other example is my son Malachy's handwriting from a card he made for me.
I can create artwork from any handwriting. Once the order is placed I will be in touch to obtain a copy of the handwriting and create the artwork for approval. Again there is no limit to the amount of words, as long as it fits in the space.
If you would like to discuss possibilities before placing an order, please send a message through the Contact page.
PLEASE NOTE PERSONALISED ITEMS ARE NON RETURNABLE.
Twisted Curb Chain: 48cm (19 inch)
Pendant: Width: 2.1cm Height: 3cm including loop
Silver: Solid sterling silver.
Gold: Solid sterling silver - plated in responsibly sourced and ethical 24ct Gold.
My gold pieces are classed as Vermeil, this means that the base metal is Sterling Silver and there has been 2.5 microns of 24ct gold deposited on its surface. I plate my rings to 5 microns as they see more wear and tear.
Vermeil gold is the hardest wearing gold plate as it has such a high minimum deposit required. However it will still naturally fade over time, especially in high pressure areas such as where the jump ring sits on the chain. Please read how to prolong the life of your gold jewellery here. I offer a re-plating service which you can find out about here.
Every engraved piece is handmade to order so it can take 3-4 weeks before your piece is sent. For urgent orders please send a message through the Contact page.
