Ingrid Bergman's Victorian Pendant | Maker's Bench

How It’s Made

The Ingrid Bergman project was initially a huge challenge for us. The images from the film just did not provide enough information to re-create the pendant.


After hours and hours of research searching thru our books and on line - we found an amazing sample that just had to be part of the same production series. Below you will see a similar pendant that was produced in the mid 1860’s. Having this sample image to work with we were able to “see many of the details”.

Researching & Design Development:

Story boards or project art boards are a key part of the design process. These boards help us stay focused on the design of the project. And they keep the client well informed by communicating our direct and ideas. Below is our story board.

I knew from my historical research that jewelry from the Victorian time period, could be made in precious and/or in non-precious metals. Since the budget dictated the scope of work we decided to go with brass and to plate it with 18 kt gold.


Once the back plate was cut, we then cut and formed the top component of the pendant with hand tools. Soldering was fairly simple we used hard silver solder since there were going to be many levels of soldering on the construction of this pendant.


The borders of the pendant were hand formed from brass sheet. We had to get the exact curves to create the same look. It is a lot harder to copy a design then to create one from your mind. You have to be on the mark. If it doesn’t match exactly the original piece it will not look like a recreated work.


We always check the progress and accuracy of the design against the original photographs.

The bail had to match exactly. It was after several attempts working with the hammer and the forming block that we finally achieved right curves.

Brass balls are not available at the jewelry’s supply store. So we made each and every one. Sorted them by size and carefully soldered them into place, using the same techniques from the Victorian times. (My eyesight will never be the same)

“There were several discussions on how the leaves were originally made. They could have been enameled, a popular design element from this time period in jewelry or engraved metal. We decided to make them look like engraved metal in rose gold.”

I have been carving wax since 1991. I love the medium, hard plastic like wax is my favorite. You can really get exactly what you want in the wax. Once cast, you can still make changes in the metal. But my philosophy is do all the work in wax it is a lot easier to carve wax them file metal.


With the casting and finishing process behind us, the rest of the project went smoothly. We soldered on the three leaves using extra soft solder. It was the last of the soldering we would do on this piece.

We always keep the client in on the design process. Often with these complex designs once you go down a certain path there is really no going back, if you make a mistake in metal you are starting all over.

The final step in completing this piece would be the plating. We selected a rich 18 karat yellow for the pendant and rose gold for the leaves.

Six lines of perditot tumble AA quality lot with the weight of 615.00 cts and it’s length is 16 inches of one. The price of one line is 7 $ and shipping charge is 3 $. You can simply claim for one line or more. Peridot, the birthstone of August is a gorgeous lemon-green coloured gemstone whose colour varies from yellowish-green to brownish-green. The peridots owe their colour to iron i.e. higher the concentration of iron, greener the stone! Peridots were quite precious in ancient times as it was one of the twelve on the breastplate of Aaron in the Bible. However, Peridots lost their value down the ages because similar looking gemstones like Emerald and green tourmaline replaced them. Nowadays, they are not a preferred choice of gemstone in jewellery and are long forgotten. #faceted #pendants #gemstones #paarkhi #ringpiece #calibrated #beadsjewelry #Quartz #crystal #fashionjewery #silver #jewelery #siversmith #minerals #bracelet #violet#peridot #peridotnecklace #beadsonstings#

Overall, Iolite appears as violet-blue or indigo, but in different positions may shift to a yellow-gray or honey color, and even to a clear light blue. It is also referred to as “Water Sapphire” or Dichroite.

This is glass filled Ruby faceted Gemstones lot of 2 pcs with the weight of 11.80 cts and the dimension of bigger one is 10×12×5 mm. The biding price of it is 35$ and shipping charge is 3 $. Kindly tag the person whom 👇👇you bid more with 1$ more.
At face value, the process to create a lead glass filled ruby seems the same. They use heat and a substance to alter color and fill the fractures that exist in the stone. This creates a more transparent, eye clean, brighter gem that resembles a more expensive ruby. So what’s the problem with that you might ask? Very simply put, the process is not permanent and can be damaged not only at the workbench by a jeweler, but also by the consumer with normal wear. #paa#gemstones #cabochons #calibrated #pendants #natural #glass#filled#ruby#rubyjewelry #silver #jewelery #magnificent #corundum #sapphire #goldjewelry #siversmith #stone #ruby#rubyring #
