Introducing Bjoux d'amour

In honour of the day of love this month I collaborated with my good friend and fellow goldsmith, Lianne of Calyx Jewellery.  We worked together to create a collection of jewellery to commemorate that special day.  Valentine's is a great time to celebrate everyone you love, whether that is a romantic love or wonderful friendship. We hope these pieces will help you to express your feelings this February 14th.  

Here is a little overview of our process...:)

Started off doing some sketches over a delicious lunch together...

After deciding on our design we made a few models in copper to get an idea of how the pieces would look...
The next step was to make wax models of the little hearts. 

After having moulds made of our little hearts we pulled waxes to cast! 

Flasks are ready to cast!

Casting Time!!!!

All done and ready to polish!

All finished - 3 different sizes!

Pendant is also the clasp with the small ring able to slip over the bottoms of the heart. 

Sweet little studs also available. 

We had such a great time working on these special pieces together and doing a mini-photo shoot at Freedom!
