Inspired by my Dad

When I had to design a piece of jewelry that represented my dad (who is a singer) I was stumped.

I didn't want the obvious but I wanted to design something someone could wear even if they didn't know who he was. A design that would stand on it's own.
Above is some marketing material for the finished piece.

I loved how the necklace turned out. The design was inspired by the 45 records my dad recorded and the paper sleeves they slid into. Each sterling silver and 14K gold piece incorporates my dad's fingerprint as the pattern on the record.

It took some finesse in the construction but was well worth it.
