We also needed to add a date to a rose candle-holder — so we thought we'd show you creative ways we can add special messages to our gift items. Steel is too hard a metal for machined engraving - the type you get done on your medals or trophies. So we've developed our own ways of engraving special messages onto our gift items. We offer two methods, traditional etching or hand-engraving. It's a little more rustic in nature, but we feel the results suit the style of our hand-made objects.
For the jewellery box — because this is a large item, we came up with the idea of adding a name-plate behind the closing latch, and to make it more special we gave it a bronzed finish. The bronzing was also added to the legs and the rim of the lid to blend the style of it. We think it looks really special.
For the rose candle-holder — there's limited space to add special text here, but it looks very nice when it's added in a curve around the hammered plate that the candle sits on. The text is covered when the candle is in place, so the message becomes like a secret love note. Make an enquiry by email or phone before placing an order if you'd like to add a custom engraving to any of our gift items.
