RESERVED for Jan K.

A hand-engraved sheet of sterling silver frames a resin-encased vintage French stock certificate which then creates the perfect setting for a Victorian brass button. Brass rivets keep things fastened up nice and tight...just like the Victorians liked them.

THE VINTAGE FRENCH STOCK CERTIFICATE:
When I found the stock certificate that inspired this piece I immediately realized that if I were to simply cut the circular medallion out of the corner I would be separating it from the gorgeous scrollwork on either side of it...and that would be criminal. I had never before seen such beautiful scrollwork surrounding the corner ornament of a certificate and I thought that separating the medallion from it would be like splitting soul mates. I decided to keep it intact knowing that this was the proper thing to do, but also aware that many might find the scale of this piece quite intimidating.

THE VICTORIAN BUTTON:
When I first laid eyes on this button I fell in love. I wasn't yet sure of when or where I would use it, but I knew it would eventually find its way into one of my pieces, and not just any piece...it had to be the perfect piece for the button. Generally when working with stock certificates it is the circular medallion that I frame as the focal point, but in a moment of inspiration while hard at work on this piece I suddenly remembered that Victorian button I had been saving for just the right piece...I knew this was where it belonged.

THE CONSTRUCTION:
To make this piece I used a single sheet of heavy gauge sterling silver which I pierced, sawed and then meticulously filed so that the openings revealed the intricately etched scrollwork. The paper stock certificate is encased in resin allowing it to be incorporated into this piece of jewelry without worrying about it being damaged by the usual suspects. The button is held in place (behind the certificate layer) by a layer of resin. The backplate is a full sheet of sterling silver which is marked with the Pink Crow Studio custom stamp.

The pendant measures 2.75" H, 3.25" W and 0.375" D (a bit under a half inch), dimensions that are not for the timid wearer, but then again are perfect for the right person.

Integrated 17" Sterling Silver Snake Chain with custom side toggle clasp.
