Nicola contacted me with an idea for an extra special jewellery commission. She wanted a gift for her friend to celebrate her birthday and the birth of her first child. She had an idea for the design and showed me a sketch she’d made. Thanks to her sketch I immediately knew what she wanted: a bespoke family pendant! We swapped lots of pictures and ideas via Whatsapp as Nicola lives in Switzerland.
We settled on the design of a three-fold pendant made with delicate wire – one piece of wire for each family member. I sent Nicola photos of the chain length and material options – we decided that it would look good in sterling silver and copper. She even received a video of the making process to give her a 3-D experience of the bespoke necklace. The necklace design was then tweaked based on her feedback.
I packed the necklace in my beautiful bespoke boxes and sent it to Switzerland via Royal Mail’s Track-and-Trace service. Nicola’s friend was overjoyed with the bespoke family pendant! I love making people happy with bespoke handmade jewellery, especially when it’s a gift to mark such a special occasion. You can read about other bespoke family pendants I’ve made here.
If you want me to create a bespoke handmade family pendant for you, get in touch and let me know how many rings you need and if you’d like it in silver/copper/brass or 9ct gold
or order from my Not on The High Street store.
