The idea: A whiskey molecule necklace for a whiskey-loving gal
The process: We started with some sketches. Jeff sent me a diagram of the chemical structure of whiskey as well as his idea for how it might work as a pendant. He also shared important details about the recipient, such as she's very tall and loves to wear big, bold jewelry. Good to know!
The build: Starting with sterling silver wire, I cut and formed each piece of the molecule.
I then laid out all the pieces and began soldering them together.
This was a fairly large piece to heat, so it took a few tries to get solder to flow to all the joints.
End result: Super awesome lady receives badass, thoughtful, customized gift! Everyone parties and has a great time!
