Charm Swap Progress

March 26, 2014 1 min read

Changed my mind a bit from the original charm ideafor EtsyMetal's Charm Swap no 13.

I went with a simpler design without gold accents and stones.  I am engraving feathers onto Sterling charms. I can change them up a bit as I go and make each one slightly different. It's more fun this way. Otherwise I would go numb engraving the exact same thing on 20 charms. And honestly with all the time I spend doing my taxes, I just did not have time doing all the soldering and stone setting required for the gold accented charms.So this is the time saver option but still will produce nice charms.

I did a practice piece in copper first and then finished one in sterling.
All charms have been solded then stamped on the back with CS 13, my makers stamp and the 925 sterling stamp.
Then they were oxidized in LOS.
The first 3 finished charms.
There is a large wide feather on the front and a smaller one on the back.
All engraved with the Lindsay AirGraver with a 116 degree Uniform-parallel graver point sharpened with the Lindsay template. I will now do a couple at the end of each day and should be finished by the end of the week, then shipping. The feathers are a great simple graphic and good for engraving practice. I can try curved and straight cuts, sculpt the centers, vary the depth and spacing of the cuts, etc.

Beautiful and looks exactly as expected

perfect fit, perfect ring, Fiancé loved it and said yes :)

Stunning!

I bought the Velda ring in rose gold with alexandrite stones and couldn’t be happier! Konstanze helped me determine how it might look as a shadow band with my engagement ring (pictured). It looks better than I even imagined and I am so thrilled! Konstanze was great at keeping in touch, answering questions, and it didn’t hurt that it came so nicely gift wrapped. My husband and I did all our wedding jewelry in-person at our local store (pre-pandemic) and I didn’t know what to expect with an online experience, but it was very personal and turned out perfectly. Thank you!

Beautiful Craftsmanship

I cannot express how excited I am about my beautiful ring. It is exactly as anticipated. I ordered a small (4.25) thin (3mm) hammered edge band, with a comfort edge.

The customer service was excellent! Shipping was fast. I love buying from small businesses, but the level of detail and amazing customer contact was phenomenal!

Wonderful creative design

I LOVE my ring!!! It is so beautiful- bright silver with the awesome pattern would like to get two more narrow ones to wear with it!!

Perfect tiny stud earrings

Exactly what I wanted: grey (my favorite color) diamonds set in platinum (hypoallergenic), lightweight for every day. Thank you!
