This is one of the new, entirely non-roller derby related projects I have been working on over the past couple of months.
I had been wanting an initial charm for my bracelet, which now makes a lovely jingly noise when I type, but could only find very boring fonts, machine stamped out of really thin sheet (which looks a bit rubbish to be honest, and the edges are all sharp and unfinished). Aha! I thought, I shall make something more chunky. Picked three of my favourite fonts and set about doing A, B, and C out of each. I cut them out of just under 2mm thick sheet, which makes them nice and solid. I think they turned out really well - just need to build a page for them on the website now...
First, a lovely tattoo style Baroque font:
Then, a kind of cute, curvy goth font
And finally, a kind of Tim Burton/Nightmare Before Christmas inspired gothic font. Although the C also looks kind of Olde English style.
I'm also working on something else which I'm very excited about and which makes me smile every time I think about it. More soon...
EDIT 15/5/11: You can now see all of the different letters and purchase initial necklaces here on my website. I also take commissions for Gothic/Olde English style name necklaces, just send me an email to email@example.com to have a chat about what you would like.
