Tried another ‘etched in relief’ idea – this time with the words spiralling around a central raised heart. I took rather a lot of fiddling around to get the text flowing around the circle but I really like the end result. We are offering this as a personalised necklace so you can use the words of your choice to create a really meaningful gift. Some suggestions include a special song title, part of your wedding vows or children’s names. I will be doing some more variations of this necklace as I have a few more ideas I want to try out so watch this space!

Well the days are flying past at the moment and Valentines day is just round the corner for all you love birds so we have been busy coming up with a few designs. The first of which is this silver heart necklace which can be personalised with the words of your choice.
I had been wanting to try etching text in relief for some time now and this is my first attempt and I have to say I was really pleased with the way it came out. After etching the text onto the silver heart which I cut out from sterling silver sheet by hand, I oxidised it and then popped it in my new tumbler (so excited to finally get a tumble polisher that everything is going in it at the moment!) and crossed my fingers! I love the effect it has given it as the pendant has a real shine to it – which is difficult to portray in the photograph – and the writing is highlighted but in a subtle way – a really unique way to express your feelings. And don’t just limit it to Valentine’s Day it also makes a great engagement, wedding or anniversary gift. Short phrases such as Be Mine, True Love and even Marry Me work best on this necklace and we have a few ideas coming up for those of you who have a bit more to say!
