14ct Gold Heart Birthstone Pendant

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! 


The design process behind the 14ct Gold Heart Birthstone Pendant


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....
