It’s a day of ponder and thought today across our Great Britain and afar as we remember the brave men and women of our armed services past and present and the world over, Words cannot say enough of their sacrifice ” Lest We Forget ” So I hope everyone’s Fireworks night went off with a bang and you all kept safe, We went to my hometown and thankfully the rain held off, Such a wonderful sight to see. I know everyone is gearing up for Xmas but really you would think it was coming up in the next week, Just ridiculous, I love Xmas, It’s the best time of the year for me but to have such a long run up to it just takes that special charm away from it. Well that’s my take on it, So let’s crack on with our new personalised sterling silver secret message Moon necklace, As usual completely unique to IndiviJewels you are only going to be able to purchase this from us unless someone does a bad job of copying us lol. We are always trying to think up new ideas for expanding our Secret message range which can be more trickier then you think, You have to think of size you don’t want something that is to big or small, It has to have enough room for a decent sized message or the point of it has gone. Shape is also another problem, You could rattle off no end of shapes but depending on angles the person receiving the necklace won’t be able to see it! So with all things moon themed at the moment we thought we would make an IndiviJewel take on it and we think it’s done the job. When you make a piece of jewellery unique as this it takes time to make and this is no exception, We cut out two lengths of sterling silver sheet, Same width but one a little longer than the other, Etch the text of your choice to which you can have 24 and 15 characters including spaces then comes the hard part shaping the two pieces of silver into the shape of a half moon which as you can imagine could be a little tricky. We then solder the joins together then file away all the excess solder and using various sandpapers to get it to the point of polishing, The two loops for the chain and star are also soldered on, Once all this is finished it needs a good polish to make it all shiny, Clean all the polishing compound off them heat it up and put in the pickle pot to rid the piece of any last dirt and then drop in the tumbler for a few hours and Hey Ho one lovely unique personalised necklace ready for you to wear. As you can see a lot of time and effort goes into making just one of these piece’s but if you want to make a unique piece of jewellery then hard work is a must. So with Xmas insight this would make a unique personalised keepsake so hopefully you will like our latest necklace. OK time to go so till the next time ” Don’t be like the the rest be an IndiviJewel “.
