Another special birthday, for a mother who is the centre, the beating heart of her family..
A heart on gold with birthstones was my brief.
Right, down to work with sketches!!
After some thought, I decided to go with a gorgeous gold heart beaten from flat 14ct gold sheet, with 5 birthstones, (5 children) cascading around it … the customer loved the idea and felt that it would be perfect for her mum!
With the go ahead from her children, I went out to the studio and I began the challenge of hammering a flat piece of 14ct gold into a heart shape.
As the gold heart took shape, I started to work on the settings for each of the birthstones ; moonstone, citrine, blue Topaz, garnet and diamond, one for each of her five children.
Finally, after a lot of hard work, the pendant was complete! I was very happy with how it turned out. The mum was speechles, sshe had never been given such a gift… It is something she will forever cherish and pass on as a heirloom in years to come....
If you would like to create your own special piece to mark a special occasion, for you or loved one, please feel free to get in touch and I will be happy to help!
