  • Handmade Carrie Sex & the City style Nameplates

    With the Sex & the City film coming out recently, I got a commission to make a nameplate from silver. The customer picked the font as she didn't want it to be uniform and easily readable.


    I loved it so much I decided to make one for myself, in a different font I found. They measure approx 1.5 inches in length and each piece is hand pierced (sawn) from a flat sheet of silver, so a precise and steady hand was needed!



    I've worn mine constantly since making it I'm completely in love with it. I put a lot of myself into each piece I make so it's so nice to be able to keep one for me!

    They are both lovely, and I know how awkward and time consuming piercing work can be.

          Ooo, they're lovely and your piercing is very precise! Can I ask how big they are? It's not easy to tell from the photos but I'm guessing, as pendants, they must be pretty small?

                  Thanks! As Pebbles said, they are 1.5 inches relatively small.

                  Even though I'm not a very patient person, I find piercing very relaxing once you get into the rhythm, I think it's a similar type of thing for me as stroking pets can be for others!

                  Btw Pebbles if you want to order a couple, I'd be MORE than happy to do it
