Bespoke Brooch

Welcome to DESIGNYARD's blog.  

Here we will do our best to keep you up to date with interesting projects and custom-made work our clients have commissioned us to make.
We have just opened our brand new workshop in our Donnybrook Village showroom and it already has many exciting and interesting commissions in the pipeline.  
Below was one of our first commissions.

A SPECIAL BESPOKE BROOCH.

Our client has a passion for dogs.  Her dog in particular.  
We were commissioned to create something unique and special that she
could wear with pride. 
We started the commission with a picture of her prized pooch.
We manipulated the image.
Bespoke Silver Dog Brooch Created For Client - DESIGNYARD
From a sheet of pure silver the image of her dog was sawed out.  
Delicate hands and attention to detail are vital for this.  
Then filing and more filing to smooth and remove any rough edges.

It's messy work. Keeping the workbench tidy is hard.

There is constant checking and re-checking to make sure
the contours are perfect.
