Contemporary Style Pendant

Each pendant is one-of-a-kind custom-made just for you.

    Artist Daniel Nie turns the letters from your PinYin or English name into a unique design by overlapping the letters to become a beautiful composition.

    The contemporary style pendant is a reproduction of the artist's hand-painted Coolligraphy (calligraphy). Then the calligraphy image is reduced and processed through different steps of computer graphic editing before being micro-dot engraved on a Rhodium surface pendant or on silver or gold. Rhodium is a precious metal that will not tarnish, and it is maintenance-free. The calligraphy image is in silver or gold styles, but sometimes the white lettering appears to be on a black background, and other times it seems to disappear. It is the different degrees of light reflection on the surface of the pendant that causes these different visual effects, which is the beauty of this high-tech engraving pendant (see samples in photos below).

    Common sense: a pendant made of plated-Rhodium under daily use is considered as "heavy use" and under such use, the surface may be worn out over time. If you would like to treasure this artwork, please be advised to wear it for special occasions, and cleaning it gently with commercial Jewelry Wipes is recommended. 

    **************************************************************************************************************

    Please notice: the silver or gold is color plated; all pendants are not real gold or silver metals. 

    We have 18"/2.2mm chains available for order upon request.

Q and A:

(Please feel free to contact the artist for any questions: 704-574-1815)

Q: How do I know what my name will look like?

A: Because your name-pendant will be created as a unique original, it is not something pre-made that you can preview. However, by looking at samples on this website, you will have a good idea about the general style of these beautiful pendants. You do not have to worry about the beauty or the quality of your order; your satisfaction is money-back guaranteed.

Q: How long can a name(s) be? What about initials?

A: There is no limit to the number of letters in a name or word, but we suggest you use the short version of a name if you can. We can do a maximum of 2 names together on one pendant. This makes a wonderful gift for a couple. If you are considering gifts for a family (i.e. multiple names ), we suggest you order each name as a separate pendant. However, you may also take the first letter or initial from each individual member's name to combine into one pendant as a family piece (e.g. John + Vickie + Cathy + Ed can be J.V.C.E.)
Please feel free to consult with the artist if you have further questions.

Q: What are the styles and dimensions of the pendants and the chains?

A: Basically there is only one style for the pendant and one style for the chain. The 32mm round diamond-cut-edged pendant is an upgraded one (see Fig. 3 and Fig. 4). You have to pay $19 extra to upgrade your pendant. All chains are 18" long.

Q: How heavy is the pedant? Will it tarnish or break if I drop it on the floor?
How do I take care of the jewelry?

A: Because the pendant is made of Rhodium so it will not tarnish. It is not heavy but strong, and it should not break under normal circumstances. Your pendant is maintenance-free. However, if you wish to polish the jewelry you may use a soft jewelry polishing cloth, which can be found on the internet.
The face of the pendant should not be scratched or rubbed in any way. You may dust the surface by using a soft cloth or tissue.

Q: What should I do if the face is damaged or dirtied by accident?

A: If your pendant is damaged, there is no way it can be repaired. However, your pendant is made of a strong precious metal therefore under normal wear it should last a lifetime. We may give you some discount for a replacement if an accident should have happened. The artist is willing to help you at any time.

Clissic Style Pendant

Introduction:

Your pendant is virtually maintenance-free. However, to prolong the life of your pendant, it should not be rubbed against your clothes or scratched or washed in any way. Do not wear the pendant in the rain or while swimming, taking a shower, or bath.

Each pendant is individually hand made by the artist Daniel Nie through the following process:

The artist turns the letters from your name into a unique design by overlapping the letters to become a beautiful composition. You may discover that the artist uses one letter to represent all other repeated letters in the name/word or words. The artist uses a method of integration to make one part of the letter shared with other letters. For example, the letter "E" may share with "F," "L," etc. This method of integrating letters is necessary for fitting the name(s) into a small space on the pendant. Please have fun with finding all your letters in the design. The design on your pendant may look different from a design that the artist would do on a larger piece of paper in a wall hanging piece (please view those wall hanging samples on our website). The calligraphy has no fixed formula so each design is a unique creation of artistic genius.

The design is first created on a circular or square piece of rice-colored material, which is then mounted on a sterling silver pendant. The face of the pendant is treated so it is waterproof and maintenance-free. However, you should not wear it in the rain or while swimming, taking a shower, or bath. The face of the pendant should not be rubbed against your clothes or scratched or washed in any way. You need to treat it as a piece of expensive artwork. I am sure you will enjoy showing off this unique piece of jewelry. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the artist directly.

However, if you wish to polish the silver part you may use 3M's Tarni-Shield Silver Polish or Twinkle Silver Polish, which you can find in your local hardware or department stores.

Q: What should I do if the face is damaged or dirtied by accident?

A: We can replace the face of your pendant free of charge, as long as the sterling silver part is still in good shape. All you need to do is contact the artist directly to make arrangements for your repair needs. Shipping and handling fees may apply accordingly.
