|The Friendship Necklace|
I've been busy brushing up on my silversmithing skills by taking another class. My husband Jimmy is also learning this craft. Together Our Plan is to start creating silversmithed or metal worked pieces of jewelry for my shop. My Goal is to add a new "level" of jewelry to my online Etsy and ArtFire shops. This will allow me to be more creative as well as add a new dimension of jewelry for you my customers. Look forward to silver smithed gemstone rings, necklaces, and earrings in the near future.
A customer specially requested me to create this popular tattoo into a Friendship Necklace. She sent me a photo of a tattoo of this design. I was caught by this symbol's Simplicity and Feminine Beauty with its Flowing Swirls.
This Symbol represents "Friendship"...the top loop connects to You and the bottom "open" loop connects to your Friend and/or Loved one...the 2 of you are eternally "connected" by these feminine swirls of friendship.
Using traditional Silversmithing Jewelry techniques, I drew out the design with my own creative touches, hand formed the Sterling Silver wire into the shapes of my design, cut and filed the edges, hammered and textured it, soldered the pieces together and then buffed it.
I was very pleased with the results. This Friendship charm has the beauty and simplicity that I wanted to capture.
This necklace would be perfect for your Girlfriends, your Sisters, your Sorority Sisters, your Boyfriend, your Spouse.
