    Just thought i would share one of the major commisions I've had at work, a complete sterling silver book, for a 50th wedding anniversary. The construction method was a brainstorm and a half. 
    The outter pages have been gilded.
    Some information i have covered for confidentially reasons as well.
    Quite pleased with how it finished up.

    Probably not everyones taste but today I made a keepsake pendant in silver for a customer of mine, his son sadly died and he wanted something he could wear that he could put his sons ashes in to keep his son close to him so I made him this to wear on a silver chain.

    After the popularity of the "Today I bought.." and "Today I received" Threads I thought perhaps people could upload pictures of things they have made/poured/cast.
    I thought I'd kick it off with this 9ct Gold bangle I made today...

    GoldBenj reacted to Roy in Soppy story   
    So 
    We had a moment in the Roy household last night. The wife had been out with her colleagues and indulged in some 'extreme shopping'.
    It's no problem, she works hard and is her own keeper.
    But...I cannot stand waste. Frivolous spending. Keeping up with the Joneskis.
    It got heated, fueled by a little too much red, and we were in each others faces.
    I quizzed her: 'All that money on handbags...and what are they worth? (to be fair, some are vintage but that doesn't help this story!)
    She replied venomously, 'Pah! You can talk...what about all your stupid coins? What are they worth huh?
    The spread sheet is in my mind. 'Er...about 30 grand at today's prices.'
    You could have heard a pin drop. She went to bed. 
     
    This morning, over poached eggs and coffee, she whispered, 'You weren't joking were you?'
    (I'm not a man known for idle comments) No, I replied.
    She smiled, her big brown eyes begging for reparation,
    And said, 'I knew you were right for me'
     
    Moral of the story? Is there one or am I just bored? lol
    Ying and yang?
    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction?
    Someone has to take care of the finances. It's me, it's you dear forum pal. 
    It doesn't hurt to be the 'grey man' once in a while

    Just a small update on the silver letter opener, went with a twist handle for a nice contrast. Thinking of putting a nice coin on the end of the twist.

    Hi @Xander, sorry for the delay, I have only just seen this and am concerned that you have ordered something that you haven't received.

    The only sovereigns that we don't have in stock that we have accepted orders for are the 2017 200 Anniversary Strike on the Day BU Sovereigns. We sold this as a pre-order coin and we generally receive the coins 2-3 weeks after the Royal Mint release the coins. We were expecting delivery around the 21 July but the Royal Mint had printed the wrong information on the certificates and our allocation was held back to replace the incorrect certs with the correct ones. This has been reported at length on this forum. We are expecting delivery of these coins imminently and will be contacting anyone who ordered one to arrange delivery as soon as they arrive. With regard to other sovereigns, we do not out-source coins so if we don't have coins in stock we don't sell them. Please could you either contact me with a DM here with your details or call me on 01253 343081 so that I can check exactly what happened with your order. 
    Thank you, Lizzie
