Commemorative Jewelry continued....
Many times commemorative jewelry is customized with an emblem or seal. Here is an example of a charm made with a custom seal.
Museums and historical sites frequently use customized jewelry to commemorate the restoration of a building or the completion of a project. Customized commemoratives are also used as fundraisers by these organizations. Customization can be more costly than a budget will allow due to the tooling or model charges that are incurred and minimum purchase requirements. For this reason, stock motifs, which can be purchased in smaller quantities and without extra tooling charges are used. A motif of a woman golfer made into a hat pin or lapel pin might be used to commemorative her participation in a local charity golf tournament or tennis racket would be used for tennis competition. A starfish motif is an example of a standard motif being used to commemorate a success or achievement with "you're a star" being the implied message. Motifs can be made into tack pins just as they are, or they can be used as a component part of a more elaborate piece of jewelry which might also include the use of epoxy, enamel or colorful stones.
Like any other piece of jewelry, be it made of precious gems and gold or base metal alone, the design and manufacture of commemorative jewelry is limited only by the imagination of the jewelry designer.
