Our Saratoga men’s jewelry collection has been developed greatly this year with a lot of emphasis placed on unique designs for the fashion-forward gentleman.
The conclusion of any jewelry piece is putting on the final polish. As you have observed there are many details in building a piece. These details add a great deal to the overall beauty of the brooch.
All of the pieces to this brooch have been made and now it’s time to assemble everything together. I will do so by soldering them in place.
Thank you for all of the support at this year’s Saratoga Hospital Gala which raised over $380,000! We are strong supporters of the gala and donate a special piece to the cause every year.
So far creating this piece has comprised of many basic jewelry techniques: sawing, soldering, casting and now the one of the most traditional methods utilizing a hammer and anvil – forging.
Now that the two main pieces – the Ammolite’s Bezel and repousse gold – have been welded together, I can begin the wax carving step for the accent stones.
