I had the awesome pleasure of working with D'Arsie Manzella of Mamacita Beadworks to create customized jewelry tags for some of my more special pieces of jewelry. I had always wanted to have jewelry tags, but I didn't like the kind you stamped. I wanted something truly unique and original and custom designed, and D'Arsie made the wish come true.
First, I had to come up with a design. Brick wall. So I emailed D'Arsie my web site and asked her if she had any suggestions. Lickety split (I'm not kidding) she sent me these drawings:
The next step was for D'Arcie to sculpt the tags so she
could cast them in pewter. Here are the sculpts:
Then she cast them in pewter and I got this
cute little package in the mail:
And my actual tags!
Are they not the coolest?
She also did a number of amazing tags
for other people:
