In addition, an unwanted jewellery, precious or semi-precious stones or metal from existing jewellery, can be used to create a completely new piece of jewellery. At all stages of design and manufacture you will be kept involved, ensuring the end result is exactly what you want.
This interchangeable personalised necklace was commissioned by a customer, who decided to have a small piece of sentimental jewellery, once belonging to her grandmother, remodelled into a small gold star. Angela liked the idea of recycling her grandmothers old gold signet ring, with sentimental value. We remodelled the gold jewellery, by melting the ring down with a little extra gold, which formed a small gold nugget, using a hammer to flatten then rolled out using the rolling mill. Once the gold was rolled to the correct size, using a small stencil of a 5 point star, we cut the star by hand, using a piercing saw. To create a new piece of jewellery, which could be worn daily and also act as a piece of remembrance jewellery, alongside two graduated silver hearts, personalised with the first initials of Angela’s two children.
Angela was so impressed with the final outcome, she kindly wrote a blog about us… which you can read here http://www.creative-calligraphy.co.uk/1435-2/
