    Default Hallmark excitement

    Today I registered for a hallmark, I am so excited! Me, making pieces that will bear a hallmark! Hard to take in! Chose a little shield shape, with my two initials, JG. Registered at Birmingham. I need to think now about the first piece I shall make to bear it. Something for my mum, I think.

    What did you make that carried your first hallmark?

    Oh well done! It must kind of make it real now, if that makes sense . You must be buzzing

    Lovely feeling! I remember being so chuffed! (Mine was a bracelet for my mum)

    I really am Vos, I just hope I can do it justice!

    It does feel so good Lydia, I found something I think I can do well and absolutely love, and this kind of validates it!

    Anyone have photos of their first hallmarked piece?

    Mine was my collar, part of a large batch of stuff I got hallmarked. Oddly I have no photos of me wearing it.

    The next big thing to bear my hallmark was my back in the form of a tattoo. Not sure if that counts.

    Oooh, Medusa, you may have just solved my tattoo dilemma! I got my first one in June last year (the painting I use as my avatar) and I want another...perfect!

    Julie I forgot to ask how long the process took? I have a feeling I may be needing one sooner rather than later <eek>

    Congratulations Julie!! I remember getting mine and it really is so thrilling, funnily enough though, I cannot specifically remember my first piece, I am pretty sure that I sent a number of pieces to make the cost more economical!! Mine is also JG at Birmingham, different shape.....obviously
