3D silhouette pendant necklace

I make these 3D pendants from 2 vintage sterling silver profiles with the same shape and combine them with a round sterling disk of the right circumference. The eyelet on top is cut from one of these three elements.

Very often these profiles are inscribed with names or dates of (once) loved ones.

Some of these profiles I have collected are really old. I have ones that have dates from the 40’s. Some are really battered as if worn during the war. And some have been beautifully hand engraved. This is a craft that is not many people master anymore. Most of the engraving is done by machine now a days….

These 3D Silhouette necklaces can be found in Vielgut's shop in Eindhoven.
