Custom Ordered Family Brass Family Name Necklace & Ring

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted- with finals and holiday orders picking up right at the same time, it’s been a little difficult to keep up with the blog! Anyways, I finally have a second to post about some of the recent custom orders I’ve gotten.

The first picture is of a monogrammed brass ring, and although the monogrammed brass ring has been available for some time now, this one features a different font, and different sizes of that font to create the traditional monogram style. The  first letter of the last name is in the center, and it is a larger  size than the initials of the first and middle names that bookend it. I wasn’t sure if it was going to fit, because the brass blank is very small and this font is much larger than the Aras font that I have been using, but it ended up being a perfect fit, and I love the way it turned out!

This hand stamped brass family name necklace was purchased as a Christmas gift by the customer for her mother, and has the first initials of her parents on the top brass round, and the names of the children around the edges of the bottom brass round. This was my first experiment with using the uppercase and the lowercase letters together (because they are already super hard to line up when they are the same size, and I was worried that they weren’t going to be straight or even), and once I finished, I was really glad I did. It ended up looking like it would if they were typed out, and the different cases and font sizes definitely add some interesting variation to this all brass necklace. I’m going to make one for my mom!

Que Será, Será (Whatever Will Be, Will Be) Hand Stamped Necklace

Que Será, Será has always been a favorite song of mine, mainly because I think that que será será, or, in English, whatever will be, will be, is a nice mantra to have during stressful times & something to remind ourselves of when we are anxious about what the future holds. This antique gold necklace has 3 gold tone metal blanks that I hand-stamped with the individual (lowercase, but uppercase are available as well) letters & then applied with an oxidizing agent to darken the impressions. Reading about different metalsmiths’ & jewelry makers’ metal stamping methods has definitely shown me that everyone has their own technique to stamp the letters straight and space them evenly (the path to finding my own technique was paved with many metal blanks full of crooked/sloping/slanted letters) and I think I finally developed mine making this particular necklace (now I can’t stop metal stamping!). To add more color and to give the necklace a slightly bohemian vibe, I accented each stamped metal piece with gold and turquoise beads:
