Custom Family Crest Coat of Arms Heraldry Medallion Pendant in Pure Bronze

I think I've found my calling. Apparently I was born 500 years too late.
Because I really, really, REALLY love making crests and coats of arms. But, 500 years ago they probably wouldn't have let me touch the tools anyway, being a female and all. So, I guess now is good. :D

Here is an example of a coat of arms made into a medallion of solid bronze. I take an example of the crest, and redraw it to create a black and white line drawing which I then use to create a stamp from a polymer compound. That stamp then is used to make a bas-relief image in the bronze clay, which polishes up beautifully in the finished object.

The amount of detail that can be included is pretty amazing. In the medallion pictured, the letters in the name BOWN are about 1mm tall.

The cost varies, but the 1 1/4" (3.5 cm) diameter sized example shown in the first picture would run 155.00 without the chain, and about 175.00 with the chain. I can also provide a leather or silk cord, should you wish.

More than one medallion can be made from the same stamp, in either bronze or silver. Additional pieces would cost less, because the stamp is being reused.

Please allow about two to three weeks for fabrication. Contact me through the 'custom order' button to ask about having your own treasure created!
