In Memorium

A Special Keepsake with a Hidden Treasure.

I do feel very honoured sometimes with the pieces I am asked to make.
This one was no exception.
A customer approached me to make a special bracelet that would hold a lock of her beloved horse who had recently passed.
What instantly came to mind, was a tiny vessel that would open and close, holding a piece of his hair without altering it in any way. 
This was the resulting unique bracelet made in solid sterling silver with 18ct yellow gold detail and intricately hand engraved with an initial.

It's then curled carefully inside the tiny vessel.

No one would know what special memories lie within.
If you'd like something similar, respectfully made for someone special,
please get intouch.
