This is one of the sweetest and most meaningful wedding gifts I have ever heard of and made! MacKenzie’s father wanted to give his daughter a diamond pendant for her wedding that would represent father and daughter in Chinese symbols. Here’s an image of the symbols:
He wanted to have the symbols in a circular pendant that would have a frame and the letters would be set with diamonds. This is such a beautiful idea for a wedding gift as it represents the ever lasting bond and love between a father and daughter and what a most appropriate occasion to give it _ his daughter’s wedding!
I first sketched a design with detailed description and emailed it to MacKenzie’s father, since he lives in another state. Once he approved it, I started making the pendant! I made it into two pieces, to be able to polish the letters and also get a mirror polish on the frame. Then I hand made a double bale separately to put the chain through:
Once the pendant was completed, we choose an appropriate chain, then I shipped it MacKenzie’s father, so he can give his daughter her beautiful and timeless wedding gift. I hope to get wedding pictures!
I absolutely enjoyed making this pendant, as it was creative and so meaningful and even-though I have never met MacKenzie nor her father, he was an incredibly pleasant person to work with!
Congratulations! I wish all of you the best!!
