A Year of Designing with Plaques

It has been one year since we launched our plaque blanks. Where does the time go? These four distinct shapes (Mod, Scholarly, Elegant, and Lanky) come in two sizes and five metals; there are so many combinations you can create! Because of their versatility, we have had fun working with these blanks to create pendants, rings, bracelets and more.

Here is a sampling of the beautiful jewelry these blanks have become over the past year, compliments of our in-house design team:



You can find a lot of these projects in the DIY Designs section of our website, where we list out the tools and materials needed to make them. Others are shown as an alternative view to the product. Can you identify the jewelry making techniques we have used -- stamping, riveting, enameling, soldering, and fold forming. If you aren't familiar with any of these techniques, check out our free online video classes to learn!
