It’s Springtime and love is in the air. The next story I have to share is about expressing love through jewelry.

My client wanted to make a sterling silver cuff with “love” handwritten in sterling silver wire on the top of the cuff. It was to be a gift for his bride to be.

Client's Design

We exchanged a few emails back and forth via CustomMade. CustomMade is a site that I use to connect with customers that are looking for special projects to be made just for them. It’s a great site. I have been working with them for little over a year now.

So, we started the design with his drawing and then I developed a drawing and sent it to him for approval.

My drawing for client approval

Making the cuff started with annealing (soften) the sterling silver square stock. Once soften I could form them into the three bands of silver for the cuff design. Soldering them altogether went rather smoothly.

My client wanted to the word love written in round wire and then the letter “o” set with a pearl.

The sterling silver cuff came out lovely. I shipped it today, so Love is really in the air.
