Custom Family Crest Coat of Arms Heraldry Medallion Pendant in Sterling Silver approx 1" (2.4cm) in diameter.
I really enjoy making my heraldic pieces. Each one is an original problem to solve. How many ermine tails can I get into a really small space? How many knights can dance on the head of a medieval castle tower? Each one is also a joy to create, as they usually head out to help celebrate a special occasion.
This coat of arms was made into a medallion of solid sterling silver. I take an example of the crest, and redraw or reconfigure it to create a black and white image which is then used to create a stamp. That stamp then is used to make the bas-relief image on the medallion. I've included pictures of the original art I was given for this piece so you can see the starting point next to the finished piece.
The amount of detail that can be included is pretty amazing. In the medallion pictured, the tiny crown above the double eagle is about 1mm tall!
The cost varies, as it is divided into the cost of the artwork and then the piece itself. The artwork/stamp segment varies from 50.00 to 150.00, depending upon size and complexity (This was definitely a complex one). The stamp fee is one time charge, as the stamp is reusable. More than one piece can be made from the same stamp, in either bronze and/or silver.
The cost for a 1" medallion in bronze is about 145.00.
I ship on a black silk cord with a sterling clasp at no charge, or I can provide you with some options for a sterling silver chain, in a nice heavy weight, in the 40.00 to 70.00 range,
Please allow about two to three weeks for fabrication. Contact me through the 'custom order' button to ask about having your own treasure created!
I can also make cufflinks this way. The cost for a pair of silver cufflinks would run from 240.00 to 270.00 depending on the crest and complexity of the artwork.
Perfect for weddings or family reunions, or as a truly spectacular gift when only something precious, personal, and original will do.
