Indoor Rock Climbing Knot Necklace Commission
For a parent or guardian it can be a little difficult to decide on a special Birthday gift for an 18th or 21st. It's nice to give something that the child will treasure now, but also for many years to come. My client has started her own family tradition of giving a unique piece of jewellery to each child as they turn 18 to represent their favourite hobby or memory.
When the second daughter in the family turned 18 she commissioned a necklace in 9ct white gold. Her passion is indoor climbing and she provided a piece of rope, with a knot that would be used while climbing, for me to recreate, but with a slightly smaller loop. It was a little tricky to settle on the right way to create this and I experimented with several silver models before moving onto the final piece.
I had previously created a yellow gold book shaped pendant for the first daughter. The third child turns 18 in 3 years time, so it will be interesting to see what they want to incorporate. It's such a lovely tradition, binding each of the family members together, but also expressing their individuality. Certainly a unique gift that will be treasured for a long time and create many talking points.
