Pavé project in the works for a 🇸🇪 client
All ready for stones tomorrow. I rarely make videos while I’m working but thought I’d make this one. Making all those bright cuts to make the piece sparkle between each stone✨
No computer layouts, all measured, cut and drilled by hand.🔬

А это видимый результат моей поездки в Питер. Я снова учился гравировке. На этот раз другая техника.
Это учебная работа. Все, кто был на курсе, пытались сделать копию работы преподавателя под его чутким руководством. Гравировка по стали, всечка чистым золотом.
Курс давал известный гравёр из Америки @j.parke thank you for your awesome class!
Спасибо @jewellery.school за организацию курса

А невидимый результат поездки в голове. В мастерской подули другие ветра😉😁 #engraver #handengraver #grs #grstools #glendorus

Throwback Thursday part 2
.
The first image was another in the series in which I started to become disillusioned with really fine engraving. That type of engraving looks good in a very small and highly controlled situation. So much of this first piece shows my inexperience with many different facets of the process. That's why I have rarely shown it. By the way , I'm not overlooking the fact that the so called fine work wasn't done very well. I never saw the reason to continue down that path when at best it requires the right lighting and to hold it just right to see it , also if it gets bumped or scratched it would wipe out the engraving. I prefer a more robust style now. .
The second piece here was for a very large project showcasing JFK's watch. A collector in my neck of the woods had purchased the watch and was creating a large display, for an auction sale of memorabilia that took place in 1996.
.
The third piece is a beautiful lightly sculpted wedding band photographed on a 1940's era set of coffee cups. I just love that green.
.
The fourth piece is a sample plate I had made to display on the counter at a place I worked. I tend not to look at the diving board tongue nowadays. .
.
The fifth picture was a set of knives that my FedEx driver had placed an order for from a local knife maker. These were used as wedding gifts for the groomsmen in his wedding party. The four of them were hunting partners and he was excited for them to all have something to remember the big day with.
.
The 6th image is of an early action I did.
.
The seventh image is of this shady fellow that used to hang around my place. I haven't seen him or his hair for quite some time... Lol

Throwback Thursday...Waaaay back!

This Chinese Dragon has been done in a low relief style. Depth and contrasts. I devised a special shaped punch to give the scales a slightly raised lip.
.
#2--Steve Lindsay and Adone Pozzobon' were huge inspiration for me back 20 years ago because what they did was a mystery. Exceptional and incredible Masters they are but I began to diverge from their path once I realized how incredibly shallow The engraving is. I found out that style wasn't applicable to the work I was wanting to do. A hard wearing piece of jewellery requires some deeper engraving. This piece was where I realized some of its limitations. From here on forward I moved towards a deeper , low relief style.
.
#3 this customer wanted a wedding band with an infinity symbol mixed with flowers from her province. .
#4 rare is the time I do portraits as I find them very challenging. There really is no end to them. The thing about portraits is that unless you're exceptional, if it's off just a bit it will always bother you. There's no room for error.

#5 couple comes in desperate for matching platinum Celtic bands. Pay a fortune for them.. rush, rush ,rush... Month later they break up and he wants sell them back.
#6 wedding band for a friend, 20 plus years ago.
#7 slide on first Rifle I engraved , '95 Winchester. Can barely stomach showing it to you... Blech!
..
#8 one of my favorite pieces from long ago. Customer gave me the doughnut piece and said do whatever you want. I just got into a groove and came up with this. Once again low relief.
.
#9 my second rifle. Was my early attempt at a classic Winchester style. A little stiff and the animals aren't very good but I've seen it somewhat recently and once it was all blued up and part of a whole piece, it holds up okay. Once it's all done (wood and barrel added ) it's just one small part of a big project.

#10 an idea I had and made.. once again more towards a low relief sculpting.

Created bespoke designer yellow gold rings. Memories all wrapped up inside of a very special pet that passed away. We all get so heartbroken, we all want memories kept in different ways. .

Complete restauration / customization of a Browning Trombone

Been spending a lot more time drawing recently. It’s fun to let my mind and pencil wander.... what do you like to draw?!

In progress.

Last of the Christmas commissions all packaged up ready for the post office tomorrow! Phew!

Silver horse pendants! These pretty horses and scroll borders are hand-engraved on old silver dimes. Featuring, clockwise from upper left, a Quarter Horse, Arabian, and Clydesdale. Special Holiday Sale pricing $325 each, plus tax and shipping. Can be purchased "as is" like a token (I'll put it in a plastic display case), or I can drill a tiny hole just under the top rim and insert a sterling silver bail, turning it into a gorgeous pendant! Chain not included, but I do have some in stock. Grab these now, prices will go up!

Custom settings available, but CANNOT be completed before Christmas.

Repost of set of Andis Master clippers. This is one of the first sets that was done. One of my personal favorites because I elongated this tigers body to somehow fit on the clippers. The eye sees what it wants to. #engraving #engraved #handengraving #handengraver #handengraved #barbershop #barber #barberlife #design #custom #customdesign #shears #clippers #art #customclippers #tiger #andis #barbers #fun #haircut

Hand-engraved pocket art. So it’s a 1 inch square with a clip that you can slide over your pocket. Hence pocket art! #engraving #engraved #engraver #handengraver #handengraving #handengraved #jewelry #jewelrydesigner #jacobraymondjewelry #custom #customjewelry #handmade #handmadejewelry

...ready to ship! Definitely the biggest piece of silver I've worked on. It was a fun custom order to design and engrave. ;-)

Two hand engraved rings is done.. the rings is made out of an old spoon handle. First I draw the motive directly on the spoon handle with a pencil, then I engrave it with the amazing AirGraver mad by @lindsayengraving and then bend them with some home made tools.. so all hand made and one of a kind! :-) One is sold and the other one will be for sale at @labrocantefrancaisesitges antique/vintage shop here is Sitges. #scrollwork #acanthus #spoonjewelry #handengraver #handengraving #handengraved #filigree #scrolls #sitges #barcelona #lindsaytools #airgraver #grabado #metalengraving #metalart #engraving #engraved

A zen master rakes sand to represent ripples in water, we use gold.
Hand-engraved pattern carved one line at a time to create a lush pattern on our men’s wedding band.

Face portraits are one of the hardest things to master in hand engraving...certainly very different from engraving an animal covered in fur! Its easy to age someone and they take many hours to complete. I'll post a finished photo shortly.
