The story behind the custom calligraphy necklace, Elin & Elliette.

The story behind the necklace is my two beautiful daughters. My husband gave me a necklace with my first daughter’s name, Elin, when she was born. I have literally never taken it off. It sounds silly, but just looking at it or touching it brings me joy and helps me get through the day sometimes. We chose unique names for our daughters and I love when people look at my necklace and ask what it says – it gives me a chance to brag about my biggest accomplishment: Elin and now Elliette!

Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I actually developed my signature – or at least had inspiration for it – at an early age. My father always signed our last name with a lower case “g”. There was something almost rebellious that I recognized about that, especially being taught the “correct” way to form a capital G in school. I guess what solidified it for me was an issue I had with my English teacher in my junior year of high school. She decided to make an example of me and my signature in class and decided to start subtracting points if anyone did not form their letters properly. Well, in the body of my work, I always formed a proper capital G. However, I felt my name was my own. It was an expression of me as well as my dad and so I continued to write my lower case g when writing my name at the top of the paper. She continued to subtract points. I was always a good student, but I felt I had to stand behind it because it was a personal choice. It was my name and should’ve been MY choice as to how it was written. I never went back to a capital G after that. It has morphed throughout the years (and become a little less legible due to signing many checks!) but has always had the same spirit behind it!

Custom Signature Necklaces – The Perfect Bridesmaid Gift

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

For months I was in search of the perfect gifts for my six bridesmaids. I wanted to give them a gift that was unique and would invoke special meaning to each of them. But I also wanted the gifts to be similar enough so my girls would feel like they were a part of something exclusive. I came across Brevity and I knew I had found what I was searching for. When I saw Brevity’s Signature Necklace, I fell in love. The straightforwardness of a person’s signature immortalized in metal was just what I had been searching for. Each one would be different in the simplest way, but all the same to make a unified set. Anna is amazing and was very responsive to all my questions and concerns – I am a bride after all! I just received the necklaces in the mail and I am jealous, I wish I had one myself. Thank you, Anna, for helping make my special day perfect!

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

The Michelle signature necklace was a gift to my stepdaughter, Mallory, for her 25th birthday. Michelle was her mother, who passed away after suffering a brain aneurysm in 2006. Mallory bravely attended her senior prom later the same week, then graduated high school, celebrated her 18th birthday, and left for college soon after. She is a strong, smart, and beautiful young woman living life with a passion she inherited from her mother Michelle. The signature necklace is a lovely reminder of a woman who lived her life fully without regrets.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I’m giving the necklace to my daughter, Dana, as a graduation/new job gift. She’s moved out of state and was a bit concerned about being so far from home. I thought it would be a nice reminder of our relationship to always have “me” around.

I’m so proud of all her accomplishments and the fact that she’s ventured out on her own, making a new life for herself.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

This is my father’s handwriting. He has a very unique way of making his “I” so it is easily recognizable within my family. I purchased this necklace for my mother for their 35th wedding anniversary. My mother has loved my father since she was 17 and over the last 35 years their marriage has seen some amazing highs and some devastating lows, but the one thing that remained constant was their love for one another and their strength as a couple to overcome any obstacle in their way. As a recent newlywed myself, I hope that 35 years down the road I look at my husband with the same love and admiration I see in my mother’s eyes for my father everyday.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

This necklace is a gift for my daughter in law, as a tribute to her father. I am blessed to have the type of relationship that every mother in law wishes she had with her daughter in law. I love her as if she were my own daughter, in fact we share a birthday! When trying to decide what to get her for a birthday gift, I happened upon your website and knew exactly what I wanted to do! She lost her dad in April to cancer after a very brief illness, this signature is his. Her father was the kindest, most giving person I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The saying “would give you shirt off his back” was most likely coined after him. His love of life, his love of family and friends made him the type of person that everyone wanted to be around. His loss has been very difficult for my daughter in law and her entire family. This beautiful necklace will be a visual sign that her dad is close to her heart always.

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

I had this made for my grandmother’s 81st birthday. It is of my grandfather’s signature from a document when they purchased their house in 1965, which my grandma still lives in.

My grandfather passed away almost 10 years ago of cancer, so it is a pleasant reminder of the love and happiness that he brought us all! It may bring us tears at times, but always ending with happy memories and smiles! Thank you! It is absolutely stunning.

Calligraphy Necklace: Alis Volat Propriis

The story behind the custom calligraphy necklace, Alis Volat Propriis.

My daughter passed away 3 years ago at the age of 21. She was such a free, loving spirit who touched everyone she met with her smile. I always wanted something special to wear in her honor, but could not find the “right” thing. A friend shared the phrase Alis Volat Propriis, which means “she flies on her own wings” and I loved that phrase. Fit a soul like hers perfectly. So this necklace is to honor her and all of the beautiful, free-spirited loving women in the world!

Custom Signature Necklace

The story behind this custom signature necklace:

Early in my design career, I was struggling with how to define myself and my art. I used logos, marks and different typefaces, but none of it expressed who I was. I kept coming back to my signature. I actually sign it slightly out of order, and am constantly getting compliments and questions about it. It soon became a great way to represent me, even if it was simply though my name.

I had followed your jewelry for a few years, and was elated to find I could finally get MY signature on a piece. It is a great conversation starter and lets people immediately see the quirkiness of me and my brand.
