Are you looking for a special gift for a truly amazing friend? The type of friend who is always there for you, no matter what! Someone who can make you laugh till your sides hurt or be a shoulder to cry on when you're at your lowest ebb. Well look no further than this fabulous personalised double bangle which features the message 'People walk through our lives but only true friends leave footprints on our hearts'. The message is displayed over two bangles which are connected via a small silver ring which can be personalised with the name of your special friend.
If you're looking for an extra special gift for your best friend what could be better than a handmade piece of jewellery that was created just for her! No machines, no production line, just a skilled artisan sitting at a jewellery bench creating a fabulous keepsake that will stand the test of time.
As soon as we receive your order one of our trained silversmiths will begin work on your friendship bracelet. They will start by measuring out and cutting three separate lengths of 2.5mm sterling silver wire. Working with a series of hand tools they will then bend and shape the wire into circles and use a combination of solder and flux to join each piece together. Using a rawhide mallet they will then hammer the various parts onto a mandrel to make sure they are perfectly round and conform to the correct sizing's for this particular product. Both the bangles are now fully formed and can be gently flattened on a bench block to create just enough space for the standard text to be skilfully hand-stamped onto them. At the same time your friends name will be added to the small ring. The final stage in this process involves joining the mini ring to the double bangle.
After a quick trip to the Edinburgh assay office for hallmarking your item is now ready for the cleaning and polishing stage. The silversmith will use a combination of different sized files and sandpaper grits to make sure all soldered joins are invisible to the eye and smooth to the touch. A buffing wheel in combination with several polishing compounds are then skilfully applied to give your finished piece the shiny, mirror-like finish that it truly deserves.
Finally it's off to packaging and dispatch where your bangle will be given a final polish before being placed in a Pretty Serendipity gift box. As a little added extra we'll also send you a 'thank you' card which includes the name of the jewellery maker who was responsible for the creation of your one of a kind piece.
