Description

These are my original custom state pendants incised with text or objects of your choosing - be it a name, shape, city, logo, etc. I can create any pendant shape for you as well, doesn’t even have to be a state. Each new original is custom-made, and the price must be higher since I haven’t already created a mold to produce copies. Having a mold cuts the price and time in half; without a mold, each new wax design requires 20 or more hours to produce on my 3D Solidscape wax printer at ultra-resolution. The good news is I’ll likely make you two copies for this same price in case one casting fails, as it’s cheaper to make two than start over. But so far, no failures. 😊 So, if both castings turn out perfect, you get both.

The lapel pins shown here were created for the Arlington Convention & Visitor's Bureau. I cast these with a new, special anti-tarnish sterling silver (six times more durable than normal sterling) and stainless-steel magnetic clasps.

I can also make custom designs like this into necklace pendants (with loop and bail), as lapel pins (with needle/clasp or magnetic/clasp) or even into earrings scaled to a smaller size. Feel free to contact me with any custom ideas you have. I generally provide my expert CAD services for free.

Thanks for visiting my Etsy shop! I'm a figurative sculptor and jewelry designer, and cast lost-wax bronzes and custom jewelry in my small foundry workshop. I make everything personally by hand. Visit http://effinger.us/ to learn more about my artwork and foundry process.

God Bless,
Paul

    We absolutely love the custom lapel pins he created for us. Amazing! The only thing that we loved more was his top-notch customer service. Thank you for a phenomenal experience.

    I actually purchased two rings and very happy with both of them. Very high quality work and they fit perfectly. Easy to take care of: simple cloth polish will keep them shiny for years to come. I've been wearing them casually, but definitely have dressier outfits that they will go with. Paul was very nice to talk to. He answered all my questions and made sure I'm happy with my purchase. Highly recommend for yourself or as a great gift!

    Let me just say that it is the most amazing ring!!! I had seen it in the photo gallery, but the artist (who is also so amazing to work with) had created it special for someone with a size 5. I had wondered if it could be made into a size 8. I know it took a lot of time and effort to do for me, but the artist did so graciously and I could not be more pleased with the result. Artist was extremely communicative throughout the process & always, always very pleasant. I would highly recommend working with them. You will not be disappointed. And, their work is very high quality!!!
