    I meant foreign parts, 'Jewellery', not foreign parts 'Glorster', you are touchy you lot. He's a gun engraver. Have a nice weekend, Dennis.

    Just received a set of graving tools the other day in the hope that I can achieve some interesting patterns and textures...I think it will be quite some time though before I get anywhere even close to the work of such a master

    Just spent some time in your gallery on Marcus Hunt | Master Hand Engraver
    Love the belt buckel in the accessories and the knives and (well pretty much everything really!)
    The idea Dennis had was a great one - spend time with masters then have those cast to make
    larger runs (if that's something you wanted to do, your artistry is so unique)

    Have you ever done any crosses? Engraved crosses are so rare now and would be beautiful

    Default Sample bracelet for marcus.

    Dear Marcus,
    I could not see a way of sending this by private message, so here as requested is a bracelet I made a few years back, for a grandson. Possibly to be more universal, it could just have an initial. I have made lots of dog tags for boys too. There is lots of stuff like this in high streeet jewellers, department stores and places like Carnaby Street, London. Also Have alook at a company called Links. Kind regards Dennis

    Thanks for all your input folks, you have certainly given me much to think about. At the moment I'm working on a smaller ring than this one and rather than initials I'm seal engraving the flat. It's not going to have a crest as I haven't a family history that gives me the right to wear one but as I see it there's nothing wrong with a 'personal seal'. I'll post some pics when it's done.
    Cheers,
    Marcus
