I was curious if anyone uses hallmarking stamps for their work,
for example copyright or Ti, to show the type of metals used. Also
I have seen titanium cable used in some men's jewelry, mainly
rings, and wanted to know if anyone knew of a supplier. I would
like to see if I could use the cable for bracelets and necklaces.
Last yr, I had an email out of the blue from someone in the USA who
came across one of my stainless steel bracelets.
they asked if I was the maker!! Inside were my marks "Vladimir" Corfe
Castle UK with the date 1972 and my registered goldsmiths's mark.
My reply was yes.
So the question is, do you mark your work? its something you need to
decide on when you start in this trade.
If your proud of, and care about what you make, like me then marking
Ones work, if well made will go on through time long after one has
Thats in addition to our legal requirement to have marked all
sterling and gold over the minimum weight limits here in the UK.
Most artists, sculptors etc in the fine art world mark or sign their
work, so why not us? On another note, titanium cable? need to see a
picture to help further.
