Silver Beard Necklace

Sterling silver beard necklace

I was recently asked to make a beard necklace from sterling silver.  It’s definitely one of the more unusual custom requests I’ve had, but I really loved the idea.

The customer emailed me a picture of what the beard should look like:

Beard

I carved it out of wax:

Then cast into silver, after which the sideburns and joining rings were carved, as the wax was too fragile to carve any further before casting.

Chain soldered on, hallmarked, polished and ready to go!
