18ct yellow gold bespoke pendant

Early in July we were contacted by a client from Manchester who had an interesting design he wanted us to make for him in 18ct yellow gold. The family name was Bowen and he wanted a bespoke pendant made for his sister’s significant birthday with the Bowen knot design. We always enjoy making something different and this was like designing and making a family crest.

The challenges that came with this one was to ensure that the 4 parts of the pendant were symmetrical; this is quite easily done with machine made items but much harder with handcrafted. Attached are the processes I went through, we photographed every stage so we could present the family with a book that set out the process as a bonus gift from us.
